Full description

Enjoy a day of pure relaxation and tranquillity immersed in the green Tuscan countryside. Start with a wonderful horseback ride and continue with a lunch of Tuscan specialities and a few hours by the pool, between a refreshing dip and some sun.

Together with an equestrian guide, you will experience the thrill of horseback riding on a beautiful itinerary in the hilly area around Florence, where there is a succession of beautiful landscapes, lush olive groves, vineyards and historic residences.

After the ride, you will be taken to an exclusive resort in the countryside, where you can relax by the pool after enjoying an excellent lunch (included in the price) under the shade of the gazebo.

It will be a day for you and whoever you decide to have by your side!

What we will do

We will meet up around 9 a.m. in Florence to meet the guide and head all together (each with his or her own means of transport) to the location from which the excursion will depart: a magnificent resort in the middle of the green hills of Chianti Rufina, about 45 minutes' drive from the city centre.

Once at the destination, we will prepare for the ride, not before a briefing on the rules of behaviour and safety. Beginners will have time andassistance to familiarise themselves with the horses and learn the basic rules of riding. Then, when everyone is ready, we will set off on a guided horseback riding tour along a picturesque hilly route through olive groves and vineyards.

After about an hour and a half, we will return to the resort and settle down by the pool, beginning to relax in the sun or in the cool of the surrounding greenery. For lunch, we will be welcomed under a gazebo in the garden and enjoy a menu of Tuscan delicacies: tortelli mugellani, cured meats, cheeses, bruschetta and dessert. All accompanied by water, excellent Chianti wine and coffee.

We will spend the rest of the afternoon at the pool, relaxing and enjoying ourselves between dips. The activity lasts the whole day, from departure to pool closing time, around 18:00.
