The old town of Pienza in Tuscany, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This special designation is given to areas or places that UNESCO believes need to be preserved for future generations. The town was originally wiped out during the plague and Pope Pius II paid for the complete renovation in the 1400s. But one of the great features of this charming hilltop town is the pecorino. This fantastic sheep's milk cheese beats parmasean far as I'm concerned.
