Full description

Live an exclusive and unique experience immersed in the beautiful natural setting of the Tuscan countryside. A horseback ride in the Chianti hills will offer you the opportunity to discover these fantastic areas in complete tranquillity and to enjoy an excellent lunch in a historic residence.

Discover, on horseback, the Chianti hills, the area of the great Italian wines known and appreciated throughout the world. The area winds around Florence, among lush vineyards, lush olive groves, historic villas and castles: a bucolic setting where absolute peace reigns.

This is a perfect activity for couples, families and groups of friends who enjoy combining the outdoors with history and good food. After the horseback ride, a special wine tasting and guided tour of a historic 15th century mansion will take place, with lunch included. It will be an unforgettable experience in true Florentine style!

What we will do

We will meet at 9:00 a.m. in Florence and then move (each by our own means) with the guide who will lead the way to the equestrian centre, located in the hills a few kilometres from the city. There we will meet the riding instructors and horses. We will be given theequipment and, after a short briefing on the basic rules of riding, we will begin the ride.

In approximately one and a half hours we will complete a wild ride in the open countryside, suitable for all levels of experience: beginners can simply trot along and the more experienced can indulge in galloping stretches, always in complete safety.

After the ride, we will return to the equestrian centre and from there move on to a luxurious private historical estate dating back to the 15th century. We will discover the estate, its cellars, the secrets of winemaking and finally sit down for lunch, during which we will have the privilege of tasting the estate's products: wines, olive oil and the typical vinsanto with cantuccini.

After lunch we will enjoy a few more moments of relaxation in this wonderful environment before returning. The activity lasts a total of 5 to 6 hours.

This activity is at an easy level, is suitable for everyone and no horse riding experience is needed. The minimum age to participate is 14.
