Want more? Walking vacation in Italy will also take you to Pienza, a village that is planned and built in 1449. The work was commissioned by Pope Pius II who was born in a backward little town and is known to always have an inferiority complex about his rural upbringing. To compensate, the Pope commissioned the building of an ideal town founded on renaissance principles. But the Pope, unfortunately, wasn’t able to enjoy his creation as he died a few years following its completion. If you get the chance to visit the place, take a walk around into the piazza and you will see that everything is built from 1459 to 1462.
