Pienza, Tuscany, Itay

The delightful small Renaissance hill town of Pienza is around 50km from Siena in Southern Tuscany. It's main piazza is Piazza Pio - simple and elegant. And its most famous food is pecorino cheese: we tasted several of their special cheeses at a shop on Corso Rossellino, and bought a Caprino, and a Pecorino Stagionatao to take home to add to our antipasti platter with drinks . Yum!
