    Very picturesque little village, great for taking photographs of the architecture and the surrounding hills but not much else to do. You can walk from one edge to the other in 15 minutes at a slow stroll.

    Pienza has a great view of the surrounding countryside and hills. I love the medieval architecture here. We drove around the countryside outside of Pienza to see the vineyards and hills. Some of the routes around Pienza are considered some of the most scenic routes in Tuscany.

    Love little hillside town. A bit touristy but has fantastic views, lovely architecture and great cheese shops.

    Pienza is one of my favourite spots in Tuscany. It is the classic example of Renaissance architecture in Tuscany. Everything develops around the main square, with its trapezoidal shape. There is a nice walk with a fantastic view on the Val d'Orcia. The centre is really small and absolutely perfect and tidy, with nice shops, selling honey, tartufo and many other typical delicious foods, typical of Val d'Orcia. The duomo and palazzo Piccolomini are two interesting spots to visit.

    When next in Pienza, make your way to the Ristorante Terrazza Val D’Orcia (which is not on the main street of Corso Il Rossellino but just off the little gardened square in front of the village) to enjoy the perfect combination of excellent food and the most stunning view of the Val D’Orcia on offer in Pienza. The filleted duck in balsamic sauce as an entrée is special but I defy anybody not to enjoy the pasta dish of Paccheri (a traditional large tube pasta of Naples which one never normally sees this far north) in a sauce of fresh cherry tomatoes and ricotta cheese, sprinkled with parmesan. Now that’s a combination made in heaven. Ask Edoardo, the owner, if he would get the chef to prepare that for you and tell him Perfect Traveller said he would!

    A gorgeous city, but very small and on the day that I visited Pienza, all restaurants but 1 were closed.
