    I can see why you liked this area. The panorama views of the countryside from the Palazzo Piccolomini are absolutely breathtaking.

    Pienza é una tipica cittadina graziosa italiana, con palazzi bellissimi, un atmosfera inconfondibile, un Palazzo comunale con torre, una cattedrale antica, ricostruita in diversi stili. Pienza mi piace!
