Civil wedding in Pienza
About Pienza Pienza is the center of the Artistic and Natural Park of the Valdorcia and has been one of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1996 because it is considered by historians of the Italian and European Union, the 'Ideal City' of Pio II. In fact, its history is linked to that of Enea Silvio Piccolomini, Pope Pio II who was born in Pienza. As a great humanist Pope Pio II wanted to transform his native Pienza (Corsignano) from a small medieval town into a papal residence in the Renaissance style. The centre of the town is the Piazza Pio II and just walking in its cobbled alleys it is possible to see many old palaces such as the Palazzo Vescovile, Palazzo Ammannati, the Palazzo Pubblico, but also the Cathedral, the Dome and the beautiful Palazzo Piccolomini which was the residence of the Pope.
Today Pienza is known for its monuments, for typical shops with local specialities, such as the famous Pecorino cheese but most of all for the view of the famous Crete Senesi, the typical Tuscan landscape. Despite the passing of the centuries, Pienza has managed to preserve its Renaissance architecture and its charm and today it is without a doubt one of Tuscany's greatest small treasures.
 
Something to know The director Zeffirelli filmed his movie "Romeo and Juliet" in the town of Pienza.
