There is something very special about the rolling hills of Tuscany. It seems like every view is a work of art. Green hills dotted with ancient villages and cypress trees and topped with church steeples that act as exclamation marks.
It's a feast for the eyes in every direction. These top three photos were taken from a high point in Siena.
From Cortona, the views were equally wonderful.
It's an area where taking it slow and stopping to enjoy the scenery is a must.
From San Gimignano, my camera was pointing at new views in every direction.
I'd love to rent a small car and spend several weeks just exploring the hills, villages and back roads of this part of Italy. Wouldn't that be perfect?
