Private Guided Tour of Pienza on Foot

Born from a "dream of love and an idea of beauty", Pienza, the ideal city of the Italian Renaissance, is still today an intact testimony of an illustrious architectural project, commissioned by Pope Pius II Piccolomini and made concrete by the great Florentine architect Bernardo Rossellino.

Built in a very limited period of time (1459-1462), the city of Pio is the result of a single master plan marked, by the will of the great humanist pope who gave it the name, by design criteria of harmony and aesthetic perfection still today. clearly visible in the small urban center that was Corsignano in the Middle Ages.
