Tuscany - One of the Most Harmonious Countryside in the World - Italy

A row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated since the time of the Romans. It has been said indeed, that rather than take a photo of the modern landscape, you can gaze into a painting by Michelangelo, Donatello, Raphael or Piero della Francesca. Much of the scenery is simply unchanged in 500 years.Patiently shaped by the hand of man over milenia, the evocative landscape of Tuscany is one of the most harmonious countryside everywhere. The vineyards of the Chianti region produce some of its most celebrated vines.The southern part of the Tuscany is one of the most beautiful landscapes you can imagine. A part of it - called "Crete" is lying south of Siena. Little hills everywhere are covered with grass and some cypresses. Old farm houses are completing the scenic view.
