It's a delightful street where along the way you can see the Duomo and the Chiesa di San Francesco along with many many shops and cafes, the smell of pecorino fills the air as you get close to those shops! If you come to Pienza...you...More

Loved walking along this winding main street. The shops and little cafes were beautiful and there were blooming flowers EVERYWHERE. We went back twice because it was so lovely. Don’t miss a chance to wander here.

Corso Rossellino goes through the centre of the pretty, tiny Renaissance town of Pienza. There are shops on both sides of the street and many bars to linger at, some with a rear area with a view of the Val d'Orcia. Lots of the shops...More
