To reach Bolgheri you have to pass along the famous avenue of cypress trees, a 5 km road that connects the Oratory of San Guido to the old town of Bolgheri. It is a long, straight road lined by two rows of very thick cypress trees (someone counted them: 2540!).
The fame of this cypress tree-lined road is due to the famous poem “Davanti San Guido” by the poet Giosuè Carducci, who lived here for a long time: “The cypresses which, in Bolgheri, rise tall and straight run from San Guido in a double line…”. In fact, within the places of interest in the village we should include the childhood home of the poet Giosuè Carducci.
