While staying at Argiano Dimore, we took a few day trips to Pienza and Montalcino. Pienza, often called the “prettiest town in the world” is located in Tuscany, Italy. The central Piazza is framed by 15th-century buildings like the Pienza Cathedral and Piccolomini Palace. The latter was Pope Pius II’s summer residence and features a roof garden with valley views.
The town is full of small restaurants, cafes and arts and crafts. I’d highly recommend spending a day or two there to really explore all the small shops through the maze of alleys. The views from the perimeter are well worth the walk around. There are wine tastings available throughout the town from the wineries in the vicinity. Pienza really is stunning, so I’ll let the images speak for themselves.
