Impruneta and the Florentine hills

Olive trees are an ever-present part of the Tuscan landscape. Some trees are 300 years old and have silently followed the history of mankind. This excursion takes you to the heart of the Tuscan oil kingdom - the hills around Impruneta, San Casciano, and Tavarnelle. Here the olives are still collected by hand with the help of tall wood ladders leaning against the olive branches. The oil is still stored in enormous terracotta brick jars manufactured in Impruneta.
