Piazon has become the latest Chelsea youngster to link up with Vitesse, and he joins Patrick van Aanholt, Gael Kakuta and Cristian Cuevas in Holland.
The 19-year-old has made three first-team appearances for Chelsea and spent the second half of last season on loan at Malaga.
He is in line to make his Vitesse debut at the weekend against Roda JC Kerkrade and he is looking forward to his season in the Eredivisie.
"Vitesse is the right club for me to join," the Brazilian told Vitesse's official television channel. "I hope to play a lot here.
"The Dutch Eredivisie is a league where I can show what I am capable of.
"The last half year in Spain was a good experience, another type of football than I was used to in England. Therefore, I learned a lot."
Piazon has previously been compared to Kaka, but he feels he is a different type of player to his compatriot and fellow Sao Paulo alumni.
He added: "We are both Brazilian and came from the same club. He is more a midfielder and I am an attacker.
"Kaka, however, is my idol. As a young player, I really look up to him. The comparison is mainly because of our looks."
