All-day guided excursion for expert riders ….. Explore the Tuscan countryside in
the most delightful way… on horseback!
Meeting point at a Farm near San Gimignano at 10 am. We will be pleased to organize the
transfer if needed. Upon arrival, you have some time to get acquainted with your horse
and be prepared for your fun ride. Your guide will explain the tour, and gives the pace at
the top of the row. The ride of your dream starts with a pleasant, relaxing, slow pace
climbing up and down the lovely hilly landscape. The itinerary follows the criss-crossing
network of unpaved roads, country paths along the gorgeous vineyards and olive groves of
the area, and shady wooded trails. This is an experience you will treasure for a lifetime!
Tuscany will appear in its natural beauty and you will feel part of this absolute perfect
balance of wilderness, men work and history. At lunch time you would have reached a
Natural and Historical Park Reserve: through dense forests of cedars, oaks, and holms,
you will reach the ruins of the medieval fortified village of Castelvecchio. The place is
absolutely superb. A group of local volunteers constantly maintain the area with the ruins
of St. Frediano Church, the two mills, the watch tower, the cistern, and the urban light-grey
stoned foundations partially covered by the lush vegetation. Here our staff will let you
enjoy a delicious Tuscan meal washed down with Chianti wine. At 2.30 pm you will start
the ride back, getting the most stunning views to San Gimignano skyline, tidy rolling hills,
ancient churches, charming farmhouses, hill-top villages.
