Umbrella Trees in Rome

“I feel a great regard for trees; they represent age and beauty and the miracles of life and growth.” ― Louise Dickinson Rich 

Rome is known for the beauty of its architecture, its churches, its many fountains and its incredible food. But another thing Rome is known for, is its iconic stone pine trees known as Pinus Pinea. It is shaped like a parasol so it is sometimes called Umbrella Pines. It is impossible to think of Rome without these amazing trees.

This is for Parul’s Thursday Tree Love – Umbrella Trees in Rome

  1. My city impresses a lot of people. It’s without a doubt a beautiful city even though it’s probably not the most relaxing place one can live in.
    But, yes, apart from the monuments we do have plenty of trees and, in fact, 65 % of the territory that comprises the municipality of Rome is green areas

    I love those photos. They take me back to Rome, where I spent a month exactly seven years ago, when right now I can’t actually travel anywhere. Thanks for that!

    Love your photos. Can I say that I have never seen such pictures of Rome and I am so happy you joined and shared with us. Thanks for that lovely virtual tour.
    the trees are beautiful and with that backdrop of the architecture behind, it’s even more lovely. I hope to see you back tomorrow, Teresa.

  9. I was told by a tour guide that they had been imported to Rome from Lebanon by a certain roman emperor, to help provide shade along the roads, but I can’t seem to find a source to confirm it. Beautiful trees alright

      It may be true because the pine tree is native to the Mediterranean region. Now, these trees definitely makes the city more unique.
