Poggio Cennina


Pienza was commissioned by Pope Pius II, hence the name that binds it to Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who, having become Pope in 1458 with that name, wanted to rethink the native village by entrusting the restructuring to Bernardo di Matteo Gambardelli.

Pienza at 67 km. In the Renaissance it was considered the "ideal city". Today Pienza is a magnificent village rich in history and art, nestled in the Tuscan hills of the Val d'Orcia, between Montalcino and Montepulciano, south of Siena. The village is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards that make the fairytale landscape. Discover with us the 15 things to see in Pienza.
