GUIDED TOUR OF From Pienza to San Quirico d’Orcia

From Pienza to San Quirico d’Orcia

Pienza and San Quirico d'Orcia

This tour begins in Pienza, once a humble village called Corsignano that was transformed into a jewel of Renaissance architecture by Pope Pius II Piccolimini to honor the place where he was born during his family's exile.

We’ll visit the cathedral with its masterpieces of 15th-century Sienese art and admire the breathtaking views of the Val D’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage area.

Just outside Pienza, we’ll stop at a farm to learn some of the secrets of production of the celebrated local pecorino cheese, and finally, we’ll head to San Quirico d’Orcia, an ancient stop along the Via Francigena, where we’ll explore the Medieval historic town center and visit the Horti Leonini, a well-conserved example of an Italianate Renaissance garden.
