Pienza ©
Pienza, a town and comune in the province of Siena, in the Val d'Orcia in Tuscany (central Italy), between the towns of Montepulciano and Montalcino, is the "touchstone of Renaissance urbanism."In 1996, UNESCO declared the town a World Heritage Site, and in 2004 the entire valley, the Val d'Orcia, was included on the list of UNESCO's World Cultural Landscapes.HistoryBefore the village was renamed to Pienza its name was Corsignano. Kick off your visit on the 27th (Sat): learn about winemaking at Winery Solaria Patrizia Cencioni, learn about winemaking at Podere Il Cocco, then steep yourself in history at Abbazia di Sant'Antimo, and finally do a tasting at Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona. Here are some ideas for day two: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Tempio di San Biagio, make a trip to Piazza Grande a Montepulciano, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, then view the masterpieces at Artemisia Gallery, then look for gifts at Zazzeri Pienza, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral.
