    Love is all around you in Pienza

    Favorite thing: Pienza is a romantic place to visit. Not only is it a pretty little town to explore, but the lovely views from the town walls are the perfect place for a smooch.

    Fondest memory: And to find your way to the walls, why not walk along Via dell'Amore or Via del Bacio, which both run off Corso Il Rossellino - these street names roughly translate as Street of Love and Street of Kissing.

    Now, how could anyone resist puckering up!

    Tuscan landscape & Cypress trees

    those trees

    Favorite thing: Tuscany is famous for its stunning scenery, and the area surrounding Pienza certainly lives up to the hype.

    It looks like a patchwork quilt, made up of vineyards (ripe with fruit when we were there), olive groves, brown fields ready for planting, and those dark green cypress trees.

    Fondest memory: The trees are particularly impressive, and more often than not seem to be used to line driveways & roads, and to circle farm houses and hide impressive looking mansions from nosy passers by.

    We stopped by a house just out of Pienza to take the main photo here of their tree-lined driveway.

    sunrise-pienza-tuscany

    Favorite thing: Make-up artists do have a run of "bad luck" to get up the earliest ones ... we have to wake up the models for make-up time's starting.
    Though you could enjoy the spirits with a good cup of coffee, a biscuit and ... a beautiful and breath-taking sunrise. That will do so good to start your day, feelings and emotions ... would it?

    Fondest memory: Caste a glance at pictures of Pienza's sunrises and (!!!) sunsets always are one of the best memories of this wonderful area ... thanks Pienza Tuscany

    The Val d'Orcia

    by RoyJava Updated Jul 19, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    view-valdorcia

    Favorite thing: This valley in Tuscany is not only a place full of poetry and naturally happy people. A lot of history is there next to human relationship that made this area to a top quality place of ancient Rome, named
    the Francigena and Val d'Orcia.

    There is the beautiful light, for fashion pics a must. And the incredible views with empty spaces, where solitude creates a bizar sense of pleasure. See the hills, of never-ending slopes, and the silver riverbanks... unbelievable!

    Fondest memory: The beauty of the landscape reminds of the purity of a lady. Made-up in a very natural way, her long hair waving in the wind, dancing in a sensual move and observed in a prudent bright look by her admirer ...

    Thanks & Welcome Val d'Orcia

    Conifers Spot

    fashionshoot-pienza

    Favorite thing: We need landscape and ornamental trees to phantasy our dreams in the shade of beauty. It is human kind of thinking! Conifers (Cedrus atlantica, deodara and libani) are amongst the largest organisms on earth, yet they are often overlooked (or perhaps under-looked!?) in botanical surveys. How thankfully we founded these spots of forest cedars & conifers ...

    Fondest memory: Working hard to create beauty really felt so easy within a paradisiacal garden. Everybody was happy, and the many conifers played the most important role in the landscape. These ornamental plants fulfilled many functions as well in landscape design as in the good mood of the fashion crew. Thanks Tuscany, for these wonderful memories.
