Tuscany’s most famous trees

In the rolling countryside of Tuscany, the hills undulate so smoothly it looks like you could row a boat over them.

Driving through Tuscany*, we passed through the stunning area of Torrenieri, a locality in the Val D’Orcia – Montalcino area of Tuscany where we stopped to take photographs of the most famous little cluster of trees in world – a tiny forest of cypress trees.

Whilst the cypress tree has become a symbol of Tuscany, it is thought to have actually been introduced from Persia by the Etruscans all those ages ago.

They believed it had magical properties, and driving through the Tuscan hills on a day out to visit the Tuscan hilltop towns, one can see why.

No matter how many times you have visited Italy, the Tuscan countryside brings fills you with a sense of pure happiness, a tranquillity like nowhere else.

Or perhaps that is just the wine…
