Unforgettable Italy - Italia is Love

in Italy2 months ago

Greetings dear friends of Italy!

Perhaps you already know that from all the European countries, my own excluded, I traveled the most to Italy. I always discover something new, beautiful and breathtaking, I always feel the warmth of its nature and people! If I have to sum everything about Italy in one word, that would would be "Love", with a capital L. I hope you will agree with me by looking at one of the photos I managed to make there! :)

One of my Italian photographic travels that I will never forget was to amazing Tuscany. This region of Italy has a special place in my heart as everything that I saw, felt, tasted and photographed during those ten days, was just perfect. From the house we rented on a mountain hill with views towards Montalcino and Montepulciano (it's a sin not to taste a glass of Brunello there! :D), the several sunsets and sunrises, the fogs, the coziness of the towns and the villages we visited, the great food and wines, up to the splendid night under the Milky Way spent in the garden between vines.

One of our days there we went to visit the "Group of Cypresses" as this location is widely known. It was in the late afternoon so we decided to wait for the sunset. There wasn't many people at the time but I noticed a young couple walking on the dirt road towards the cypresses. Suddenly, I guess affected by the beauty of the area, they started kissing each other passionately. I started photographing them, of course :) I felt like a paparazzi for few seconds until they noticed me, smiled and waived friendly towards me. That's exactly how the beauty around affected them! Now and then, when I see young couples kissing, that reminds me of this special place and time of my life...

Now do you need another proof that Italia is Love???
