The perfect cliché!

A great icon from Tuscany! We went there at sunset and it was a very nice moment. It's easy to find and very worthy. Recommended!

Stunning

What can you say about these? Such a simple idea, yet so iconic a view, a few minutes drive from San Quirico d'Orcia. Drive around val d'Orcia and spot the postcard views. Pretty much everywhere you turn in val d'Orcia, looks like a painting, and this is just one of them.

Iconic although foreign
Jul. 2019 • Solo
Originally they are from Lebanon but like a lot of other things (see potatoes, tomatoes, peaches, tabak and lot of other things) they became with time iconic to Italy and Tuscany and when you see them you will understand why: it's about the sweet hills, factories, fields, sky with fantastic clouds and, last but not least, this so special trees which were imported in origin to adorn the cemeteries and now not only them.

Just off a busy fast road but there are 2 layby. Very popular with photographers and as they are in an elevated position make a good composition.

Don't miss stopping here for the views (on both sides of the road). When we were here last week the poppies were in bloom. Lovely.

The beauty in simplicity
Aug. 2017 • Family
While planning our vacation, we knew we would be driving through Toscano at some point so we reserved a day to explore Val d'Orcia (and a few hill towns). As we drove through, we agreed that we'd want to visit again in the spring when the rolling hills are lush with greenery. Still, we enjoyed the landscape and being whisked away in a rural canvas. (I'd take it over this bus ride home from work as I write this review.)

True there are other areas just as beautiful, and perhaps you've seen pictures of Val d'Orcia everywhere. But we appreciated seeing it with our own eyes in our own story. I noted a singular cypress in the middle of a field. I stopped to admire a group of dried up sunflowers that still had a beauty about them.

Perhaps you will visit and create your own story.

The area in general is the charm, and has many wonderful sights.
Aug. 2017 • Couples
We have passed by these cipressi a number of times over the years, and finally stopped to take a photo. Funny enough, the photos taken from the car when driving past as just as good as those captured when stopping. Not sure of the great attraction of this particular clump, there are far more dramatic sights, perhaps if doing a study over the seasons or at various different hours of the day.
It is always worthwhile to also locate the small quiet back roads to enjoy the scenery.
The area in general is the big attraction with many other more fabulous views and is well worth driving through in morning, in afternoon, in early evening to see that changing light on the landscape. San Quirico down the road is a wonderful town to see, without the maddening crowds.

Total cliche
Jun. 2017 • Family
Lol, I mean just lol. What so exciting about those cypresses? It's like a second Podere Belvedere, where every single person must turn over and make a picture. There are much more truly amazing landscapes around that people pass without notice.
Stop looking into photography sites and make 1000009 photo within the same spot and same view. It has been already photographed and post-processed in every possible way, starting from violet-pinkish skies with digital fog and going all over through replaced sky and pasted animals which never inhabited that area.
Be different, look around the valley.
