Pet-Friendly Tuscany: Roberto Ciulli Gardens

Chewy at Roberto Ciulli Gardens

Chewy at Roberto Ciulli Park

It has been far, far too long since I've updated this blog, not because of lack of posting material, but because we've been seeing and doing so much.  In the last two months, we've traveled like a whirlwind and the dogs have gone through towns, cities, and countryside.  But, back in October (yes, I know that was almost a year ago, now), we took the dogs to Tuscany and, one afternoon, we explored the Roberto Ciulli Park.

The dogs at Roberto Ciulli Park

The park is located outside of the town of Monticiano and is simply a huge expanse of land with sculptures and artwork facing one of the most stunning views Tuscany has to offer.  On the day we went there, the four of us were the only ones exploring the park . . . and, in the hour we spent there, we rarely saw another car drive by the lonely road.  It's a great place to get some very unique pictures of Tuscany.

Location: Roberto Ciulli Park, off the main road of Strada Vicinale Della Merese in Monticiano (53015) in the region of Tuscany

People who have pets and want to go on holidays with them don't have too many options from where to choose a hotel to stay or restaurants where to eat, which accept pets inside the location. It is better to find a pet-friendly hotel, like these amazing Beavers Bend cabin rentals, where anyone can have a good time.

Nice share. I think your website should come up much higher in the search results than where it is showing up right now?.

Having a dog is great for your health because every day you have to go outside, to walk a few miles, to jogging and to play with him. But besides playing with your pet you should also find time for your friends. For sure, most of them will enjoy a lovely day outside playing golf, at a wonderful country house club, like the one at

Those sculptures looks really funny. We can see that dogs sniffing around it and running away. It is nice to see these clicks and the photographer did a great job. I have never heard about this park even though it is few miles away from my apartment.

Hello! I am researching how to get my Vizsla from where I live in Maine to Puerto Rico. I had looked in to this cruise line, but I seem to have some conflicting information from their site in comparison with your blog. I am relieved you have actually done this and have shared your experience! I am told flying is the way to go, but I do not want my girl to be in the cargo section of the plane. Any links or thoughts you could share about getting my dog to Puerto Rico would be fantastic! Thank you, Ashley

I am sure the artists who sculptured this would also be having a good laugh seeing this. It almost looks like a troll with the dogs posing with weird expressions. But I admire your witty attitude in making up something like this. dish network channel list
