Things To Do in Pienza

Historic Centre of the City of Pienza

Calvin在路上The current urban layout and architecture of Pienza was basically determined by Pope Pius II-because this is his hometown, according to his wishes, two architects from Florence were invited to plan and construct. Therefore Pienza is known as the "touchstone of Renaissance urban life" and was declared a World Cultural Heritage in 1996. In fact, in the eyes of our tourists, there may not be so many doorways-there is only a small street that is not very spacious, with winding alleys on both sides, a church and a square in the center, and two city gates on both ends of the street. The boundaries of the town. The main buildings such as the church and the Pope’s summer residence are made of sandstone, while the houses in the alleys are mostly red bricks. Every household is decorated with flowers on windowsills, balconies and even walls, and the door frames are bridged with flowers, and the fragrance of flowers fills the air.

Calvin在路上Pienza is a mini town. The only main street can be walked from beginning to end in less than 20 minutes. The scale of churches and palaces is almost negligible in Italy. So where is the rural scenery in the photo? I began to explore a little eagerly. Going out of the gate on one side, the terrain is slightly sloping downwards, and after another turn, the pastoral scenery of Tuscany under the mountain rushes over! Along the wide platform, you can overlook the scenery of the Orcia Valley, which is Tuscany in my mind! The setting sun has plated everything here with gold, and the mountains in the distance are shrouded in rosy sunset. Occasionally meeting tourists or local residents walking dogs, everyone also smiled and shared the quiet beauty.

Square
sculptorPiazza del Campo, the main public space in the historic center of Siena, Italy, is considered one of the most famous medieval squares in Europe, and is known worldwide for its beauty and architectural integrity. It was paved with red bricks of fishbone in 1349, with eight travertine lines that split the square into nine sections, radiating from the central drain to the entire square.

M32***23Montalcino (Montalcino)-a fortress that has guarded freedom in Italy from the beginning to the present. It stands high on a rugged mountain ridge. It is easy to recognize Montalcino from its sharp towers. Its unusual geographical location is condescending, strangling the throat of Via Cassia, the avenue of commerce since ancient times. It brought prosperity to it, and at the same time was involved in a lot of wars.

Marie MonnierOne of the most amazing Cathedral I had the chance to visit. There is so much details and attention put in the place you'll never be disappointed. The ceiling is breathtaking and the size of the monument is huge. If you are in Florence you HAVE to walk inside and enjoy this historical place.
