Take a day trip from Florence and spend the day horse riding in Italy's famous Chianti region. It's a unique opportunity to explore the beautiful Tuscan countryside, which is renowned worldwide for its vineyards and unparalleled beauty. Led by your friendly and knowledgeable English speaking guide you will be taken on horseback into the Chianti region where most of the region's famous wines are produced. You will ride for two hours through vineyards, olive groves and Middle Age villages seeing the Tuscan landscapes at their best.
Before leaving for your ride you'll be given a brief safety introduction and lesson (lasting approximately half an hour) where you'll have the chance to get acquainted with your horse. The stables cater for riders of all abilities and beginners are very welcome, as previous riding experience is not necessary. Riding hats (helmets) are provided free of charge and casual clothes can be worn.
Once back at the farm, you are served a delicious Tuscan lunch of Pecorino cheese, prosciutto, salami and bruschette. After your meal you will have the chance to sample some of the finest Chianti wines (the wine tasting fee is included in the tour, wines are also for sale). Please note: If a member of your group prefers not to ride carriages are available.
