When to go

Depending on how well you can handle the Tuscan heat, visit Pienza between May and September; it gets progressively hotter from May until temperatures reach highs of 30°C in July and August. Visit in the last week of August and first week of September to witness grown-men competitively roll cheese in the festival.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Rome’s Fiumicino is the closest international airport; from here, it’s just under three hours’ drive north to Pienza. Numerous airlines fly direct to Rome from Europe and America, but travellers from Asia and Australia will need a connecting flight.
  • Automobiles

    A car or moped will get you from campagna to culture in the quickest time; hire one from the Avis booth at Rome Fiumicino. From Pienza, you can easily take day trips to Florence, Pisa, Bologna and Ravenna if you’ve got a set of wheels.
