Pienza is named after Pope Pius II – that is, Enea Silvio Piccolomini, one of the most important humanists of his time because of his profound knowledge of classical culture – who in the 15th century wanted to build the ideal city in the very place where he was born. Even today, this beautiful Tuscan town, is a unique example of Renaissance urbanism and architecture.
Pienza sits at the core of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Val d’Orcia and is also known for its namesake pecorino cheese, one of the most renowned Tuscan specialties. Not fare from Pienza, Bagno Vignoni is know for its rather unique square, entirely occupied by a large pool of natural spring water! Unlike Pienza, Monticchiello is a tiny village – built on the foundation of a medieval fortress – and it’s well worthy a visit.
