Highlights / General details
Built according to the will of the Pope from whom it takes its name, Pope Pius II, Pienza is a singular example of architectural beauty, harmony and perfection. The squares and historical buildings preserve the secrets of the art of Rossellino and traces of the noble papal power. This artistic and natural heritage is joined by taste and fragrance. In fact a Pienza tradition is that of the typical Pecorino (sheep’s milk cheese). Always under the constant guidance of one of our expert and brilliant tour leaders, you will continue the tour to Montepulciano, a town built along a narrow ridge of limestone, surrounded by an imposing city wall. The stateliness of the renaissance buildings and the elegant beauty of its churches intertwine with the ancient winemaking tradition of “Nobile di Montepulciano”, the town’s winemaking symbol.
