The shops are small and expensive. The square is okay. Some interesting architecture and some fantastic views. If you had to chose between Pienza and Montepulciano, go to Montepulciano.

We loved Pienza and this square was its heart, home to the Duomo, the Piccolomini Palace, Palazza Communale (City Hall), and the Bishop's Palace. The view of the Val d'Orcia from the view terrace leading off of the piazza was phenomenal.

Even to shelter for 20 minutes on a wet day, and even though it costs only EU7, one wonders whether the experience of being marched around a historic palace by a grumpy ‘member of staff’ merely shouting numbers to be entered into the handheld audio...More
