PIENZA

ITALY

I would say Pienza is the definition of a beautiful Italian little town. Pienza offers all the beautiful things that comes to your head when thinking about an Italian town.

Local wine, homemade mortadella, little alleys, small courtyards and tiny squares surrounded by cute balconies - if you think of Juliet's balcony in Romeo & Juliet then yes this is exactly what I mean- and many colourful flower pots placed at any possible location; next to windows, doors, stairs, tables, chairs or even at the corner of each street.

It is one of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany and a great place to visit while on your Tuscan adventure - no wonder it represents one of the first urban planning projects!

No cars allowed so it is an ideal destination for those who love wandering around and finishing their walk with a glass of wine and some local delicacies for lunch.

Go for mortadella degustation at Piccolomini Caffe and accompany it with their own house white wine.

Don't leave without trying puntarelle alla romana. It might not be a Tuscan regional dish but it is definitely one of the best I have tried.

What can make your Italian lunch even more Italian is the right view! Make sure you have a table at the backyard that overlooks a tiny square and offers some calmness and privacy - it will be just you and two or three tables...almost like dining at your own backyard!

Continue your little exploration and take a walk around the town. Streets and squares are beautiful and very picturesque. Don’t forget to stop at Piazza Pio II. It is a renaissance square and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is said that the square is made in such a way that there is a balance between civil and religious power.  Just a few steps away from Piazza Pio II, there is a smaller but definitely super cute square, Piazza di Spagna, where you can enjoy an Italian drink.

After enjoying your afternoon walk at Pienza head to your next Tuscan destination as there are plenty of little places to discover - after all Pienza is not very famous for its lively nightlife.
