The historic center of the city - a UNESCO World Heritage Site - is nestled on a hill surrounded by a circular path offering 360-degree vistas of the valley. Pienza features several churches, palaces, and monuments. Don’t miss the Cathedral Santa Maria Assunta and Palazzo Piccolomini with its magnificent garden. Wander through the historic alleys that have romantic names, making this village even more charming.
