Full description

What comes to mind when you think of Tuscany? Maybe a horseback ride through hills covered with vineyards and olive groves, beautiful turreted villages and delicious red wines... What if we told you that you could have all these things in one day?

Get ready for an authentic Tuscan adventure: you'll leave Florence on board a minivan to reach the Chianti countryside, where you'll enjoy an hour-long horseback ride. You will then visit San Gimignano, one of Italy's most famous medieval towns, and continue the day with lunch and a wine tasting at a local winery.

If we haven't convinced you to go, we don't know what else to come up with!

What we will do

The appointment is in Florence at 9:00 am. Here we will meet the guide who will accompany us in a minivan to the riding stables in the Chianti hills where our walk will take place. The trip will take about 45 minutes and from the window we will be able to admire the rolling hillsides of Tuscany.

Once we reach the riding school, we will be ready for our horseback ride. After a short briefing, we will mount the saddle and begin our ride through lush vineyards, native forests, olive groves and hillsides where the famous Chianti wines are produced. During theapproximately one-hour ride we will enjoy the calmness of the Tuscan countryside, its colours and scents, proceeding at a leisurely pace.

Once the tour is over and we have said goodbye to our horses, we will move on to San Gimignano for a tour of the historic centre lasting about an hour. Strolling through the town, we will enjoy the view of its famous towers and discover the history of this fascinating medieval town.

After the visit, around 14:00, it will be time to relax and recharge our batteries with a typical 3-course Tuscan lunch at alocal winery. Of course, we will not fail to taste the wines produced here, paired with the delicacies of lunch.

At the end of lunch and wine tasting, it will be time to head back to Florence, where we will return around 5pm.

The activity has a total duration of 7 hours.
