The main square in Pienza is Piazza Pio II. It Is surrounded by the Duomo and what was once Pope Pius II’s family home. Behind the Duomo are beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside. Great place to sit and watch the people go by.

We called in to Pienza in late September 2018. It wasn’t crowded and as well as a magnificent view out over the fields from the walls of the town, there were some lovely little shops in the Main Street.
