Go for total relaxation, cultural interest, eating healthily and well, to forget everyday problems for the time that your holiday lasts and to devote yourself to yourself, go for endless walks and why not indulge a little shopping? In conclusion: don't think about anything but your mental and physical well-being!

It's a beautiful village, it's accessible, there's good cheese, anyway it's the home of cheese. I didn't have any problems to do with accessibility, I think everybody can visit this town. The people are friendly and the reception is good, you feel at home, it's cheap and safe, the transport is good, the food is good, and there is a good choice of accommodation.

Agriturismo Casalprato (agricultural tourism) - It's a beautiful setting, the apartments are very well-kept , there is a friendly welcome. The farmhouse is situated in a prime location, in the countryside, not far from Pienza and other interesting places (Buonconvento, Montepulciano, Siena, etc.). You can stay in the room or opt for an apartment, everything is well maintained and clean.

ON FOOT - YOU CAN ONLY ENJOY IT BY WALKING ALONG THE ROADS. IT HAS A VERY INTERESTING HISTORICAL CENTRE WITH A BEAUTIFUL VIEW OVER THE VAL D'ORCIA. IT'S VERY POPULAR WITH FOREIGN TOURISTS. YOU CAN GO SEVERAL TIMES AND YOU NEVER GET TIRED OF WALKING THROUGH THE LITTLE LANES. JUST A FEW KILOMETRES AWAY THERE ARE OTHER BEAUTIFUL MEDIEVAL TOWNS. THE TUSCAN CUISINE IS EXCELLENT.

I admit, I did a lot of shopping because I was fascinated by the beauty of the local crafts. I "left my heart" in a workshop of ceramic art, the lady was called Linda and her work is very original, especially her pieces representing the Tuscan landscape .....

If you love spring colours, the best time to go is May. If you want softer colours, September/October. Pienza is a small village known for having produced a pope. It's a typical Tuscan village with red brick houses, perched on a hill from which you can see the cultivated fields extend before you.

Try the traditional Tuscan cuisine, the amazing pappardelle, boar and brunello! The average level of catering, as you often find in Tuscany, is of a very high standard. The choice and quality of wine is excellent, all in a breathtaking setting of historical architecture. I highly recommended it to those who love good food, as well as landscapes and culture.

You can try really great food in this area, from cheeses to meats, through to various first courses, they're all exceptionally good in this truly unique, beautiful village. I highly recommend it to everyone because it's really beautiful, and nearby there are a lot of small villages to visit, all equally beautiful.

I bought some cold cuts and cheese in an old butcher shop with a really nice owner who explained a lot to us. The local crafts are interesting too, especially the leather shop, which makes a really nice visit.

It's an ideal starting point to explore the Val d'Orcia. The landscape is tranquil and beautiful, it's the real Tuscan countryside. There are historic monuments and museums to visit, peaceful spas to relax in in the midst of nature. Not to mention the cuisine, the unparalleled flavours and aromas of Tuscany.

It's a beautiful village overlooking the Val d'Orcia, it's full of monuments and the famous hanging gardens. Don't miss a visit to Monticchielo and Bagno Vignoni. Spring and Autumn are best times to enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Pienza is a small town nestled in the Tuscany region of Italy. This town of approximately 2,200 inhabitants has been included on the list of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites. Pienza is surrounded by the Val d’Orcia, a valley which remains to this date unexploited and unspoilt.
The best time to visit this region is between May and June or between September and October, as the climate is pleasant with the temperatures averaging at 22°C. In summer, temperatures tend to hover around 30°C.
Pienza is one of the first planned urban towns. It was planned by Pope ... More Puis II with the intention of building a town in the true Renaissance style. It was considered to be so well-planned that the model was then used as a basis for towns all over Europe.

It's a beautiful Tuscan village nestled in the hills of Siena. There are beautiful landscapes, not to mention the great food, the great oil, wine and the famous pecorino di Pienza cheese and the traditional pici pasta with different sauces. It's a must for families or for a relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
