Part of UNESCO WHS, Piazza Pio II is a great exercise in architecture: how to utilise seemingly small public space into something seemly and grand. The main square of Pienza managed just that. It's like a Siena in miniature. Charming space.

The Piazza is very nice but what makes it even more beautiful are all the little streets that surrounds the Piazza and all of Pienza, the colors of the flowers on their balconies and friendly people everywhere.

A lovely piazza to admire but all the more so when you realise the thought, design and planning that went into delivering a modern town centre to benefit pope Pius and enhance the lives of townspeople from his birthplace.

Ramble along a picturesque street to this Piazza; enjoy the church and then wander down onto the city walls and look out over the view. From the one side the town does not seem very high but from the walls you get a better perspective. The Piazza itself is quite typical of hill town centres and as always is quite attractive but not special.

Wherever you go, you will feel the smell of The Pecorino of Pienza is a tasty cheese made from sheep's milk, renowned worldwide and delicious. Breathtaking panoramas of the Val d'Orcia Valley. Piazza Pio II has a perfect harmonious shape which gives great dignity and solemnity to all of the surrounding buildings built in bright travertine stone.
The entire city is photogenic and it is relatively easy to park.
