Enjoy the best of Tuscany by a one day tour of Pienza and Montalcino
The tour will start in your hotel lobby at 7.30 am. In about 2 hours by car, we will bring you to Pienza, in province of Siena. In 1996, UNESCO declared this beautiful town of Tuscany as World Heritage Site. Pienza, once called Corsignano, took its current name by Pope Pius II of the Piccolomini family, and it means city of Pius. The city of Pienza is an example of ideal Renaissance town according to the concepts of humanist urban planning.
That is the reason why Pienza is also known as “utopian town”, according to its wished essence made of harmony and industrial activities. Unfortunately, the death of Pope Pius II prevented the realization of this amazing project.
