What people are saying:

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.
