Pienza enjoys a truly strategic position perched on the top of a hill, overlooking the entire Orcia valley with a breathtaking view. This charming village is widely known as the "ideal" city of the Renaissance, created by the great humanist Enea Silvio Piccolomini, who later became Pope Pius II. There are several interesting places to see, such us the Cathedralm the Pope' s palace and the suspended garden. But Pienza is also the city of cheese!
