Pienza, A Romantic Town in Siena, Italy

pienza-siena-tuscany-italy-30

EN: Pienza was the first town from the province of Siena which we went to, situated close to other major destinations, Montepulciano and Montalcino.
From the moment we entered the town we realized that this is not a town where you need a car for anything. A small town where everything is in walking distance, driving your bike or just walking feels just too nice. The narrow streets are filled with colorful flower pots, while the ancient but well-preserved architecture provides a soothing shade for the hot days.
A common trait of most towns in Tuscany is the fact that they are situated on top of hills, which means that you will have breathtaking views wherever you go.
From Pienza you have amazing panoramic views over Val d’Orcia (Valdorcia), filled with charming farmhouses, rows of cypresses and vineyards, everything is there to be admired.
If you are staying somewhere in Siena, I wholeheartedly recommend that you spend an evening in Pienza, a great place for a romantic dinner and some memories for the ages.

RO: Printre primele orăşele vechi vizitate de noi din provincia Siena a fost oraşul istoric Pienza, situat între alte două oraşe turistice Montepulciano şi Montalcino. Chiar de la începutul explorării am înţeles că acesta e stilul de oraş în care mie mi-ar plăcea să fac plimbări lungi pe jos sau chiar cu bicicleta. Pe lîngă stradelele înguste pline de flori de toate culorile, ne-a impresionat mult şi arhitectura caselor vechi îngijite şi păstrate până în prezent. Un alt specific al unui astfel de tip de oraş din Toscana este faptul că ele sunt construite pe vârfurile dealurilor, ceea ce oferă pesibilitatea de a admira de la înălţime priveliştile din jur. De la marginile zidurilor oraşului Pienza, se deschide frumoasa panoramă a regiunii Val d’Orcia (Valdorcia).
Dacă sunteţi cazaţi undeva prin apropiere de Pienza, atunci acesta este şi un loc perfect pentru cine romantice şi plimbări serale.

    Wow, this brings back such beautiful memories as I was walking these streets just last September. What a beautiful town. Had some homemade gelato there and it was the best I had anywhere in Italia. Mary
