Cypress trees are a common site along the sides of roads in Tuscany - so common that they have become known as the 'Tuscan Cypress tree'. These tall and green leafy Cypress trees line one of the gravel roads leading up to the historic town of Pienza, which is a fairly small town that many people visit for its architecture and historical roots.

When tourists rent a car and drive through Tuscany they will often come across roads such as this one with Cypress trees lining either one side or both sides and the roads are not even paved - they are often just gravel roads like this one. The landscape is beautiful however and Tuscany is known for its fabulous scenery.
