Do you know that Pope Pius II, the one who gave the name to Pienza, was baptized in a church located just outside the village?
During the visit of Pienza between the countryside and the city, a local guide will take you to lesser-known places, such as the Pieve di San Vito, or Viale Santa Caterina, skirting Neolithic sites until you go back to the city.
Here you will be taken to Piazza del Duomo, overlooked by the beautiful Piccolomini palace and the gorgeous cathedral, and in via del Casello, which shows the most beautiful view of the Valdorcia.
The smell of pecorino cheese and the green of the countryside around Pienza will fill your senses and your heart.
In compliance with the provisions for prevention, COVID-19 indicates by the Tuscany Region, the guide will wear a mask and/or visor and gloves and keep the safety distance from the customers. Customers have to wear a mask in situations in which it is not possible to keep the safety distance.
From the main gate we will go down to the parish church and then go up to Piazza Pio II, enjoy the panorama of the Valdorcia from Via del Casello and conclude in front of the Palazzo Borgia.
