  • Learned about the old Oak tree while in Pienza and drove by to have a look, and glad that we did. The huge tree with many large branches is a beauty and stands out from the rolling grass covered hills...  more »
  • I live near this wonder of nature and every time it's always nice to be able to embrace this tree, although you must be at least three/four adults to do so. To see and respect.
