Description: The Hotel Residence San Gregorio is located in the heart of Tuscany, only a few meters away from the historical center of Pienza. Originally a theater in the 1930s, it was partly destroyed by a bomb during World War II. After the war ended, the building was restored and turned into a cinema by the local veterans, and remained as such until the end of the 1950s. Recently renovated after several years of being abandoned, the building is now an elegant hotel in the midst of this renaissance town.
