Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet up with your guide and hop aboard a minivan set out for the hillside. Watch the scenery out of the windows switch from bustling city life to dense forests, vineyards and olive groves.
Arrive at the stables after 45 minutes and get acquainted with your horse with a safety and orientation session. No previous riding experience is necessary for this tour, and riders of all skill levels are welcome.
Strap on your provided riding hat and head out into the open fields of the Chianti countryside with your guide. Take in the fresh air and stunning landscape as you gallop through open fields and forested trails.
After an hour, return to the minivan to travel to a local winery, where you’ll enjoy a tour of the cellars. Learn about Chianti region's unique winemaking tradition and the process of production.
Then head to a stunning Italian villa, wrapped in cypress and olive trees, where the cellars of a boutique winery sit. Settle down for a traditional Tuscan lunch of specialties like salami, bruschetta, prosciutto and Pecorino cheese, complemented by fine Chianti wine. Hear about the characteristics of each blend while you sip, eat and relax.
Your wine tour and horseback riding experience will conclude with drop-off back in central Florence.
