Full description
A visit with the audioguide allows you to discover the inner courtyard of this wonderful palace, built as an expression of the interrelations between man and nature. Wander through the hanging garden and the charming rooms of the Palazzo Piccolomini, then enjoy a breathtaking view from the loggia over the Orcia Valley.  The palace was the summer residence of Pope Pius II, and is part of a complex that includes the cathedral and the square, commissioned by the Pope and built in 1459 by famed architect Bernardo Rossellino, student of Leon Battista Alberti. The rooms on the main floor are furnished with period furniture, paintings and other furnishings, testimony to a past that still remains intact. Pienza is also known as having the first roof garden of the Renaissance, with views of the Val d'Orcia and Mount Amiata.

Safety pin!

Touring the halls of this palace is a journey back in time. The halls and even the room of Pope Pius II remain as is.
