Pienza Tours - page 2

Pienza
UNESCO-listed Pienza was little more than a sleepy hamlet until the reign of Pope Pius II in the first half of the fifteenth century. Pienza, then called Corsignano, was the pope’s home town, and he enlisted the help of architect Bernardo Rossellino to transform the village into an ideal Renaissance town. The reconstruction began in 1459 and only lasted four years, but the result has put Pienza on the radar of many a traveler to Tuscany.

The town’s historic center offers excellent examples of Renaissance architecture, particularly the cathedral, Palazzo Piccolomimi and Palazzo Borgia, all flanking charming Piazza Pio II. While it’s easy to breeze through the tiny town — it only takes five minutes to walk from one side to the other — it’s also an inviting place to savor a local specialty, sheep’s milk pecorino cheese with a bit of honey drizzled over the top.

Practical Info

Pienza can get extremely crowded on summer weekends, so if possible, plan your visit for a weekday or shoulder season.
Address: Pienza, Tuscany, Italy, Italy

Tuscany Photograph Day Workshop with the local expert

Tuscany Photograph Day Workshop with the local expert

As a native of this area, my idea for these photography workshops emerged from my familiarity with both the land and the people who make it memorable. Photographing the local landscapes is very fulfilling: this is one of Italy’s most photogenic areas. However, having the chance to photograph the people who live and work here is what makes your experience with me unique. At the same time, you will learn to use your camera in different situations, as taking a photo of a landscape requires different skills than photographing a farmer milking his sheep. The light is different, the framing is different, the subject is different. My experience as a photographer and background as a storyteller and reportage photographer feed into my workshops, and you will go home not only with landscape photography but also with the stories that your images narrate. My best advice? Take one of my workshops at the beginning of your holiday, so that you can practice what you learned in the days that follow.
