There's an adage that states, "two feet move your body, but four feet move your soul." Horses have always held a special place in the imagination. Countless books, songs, and movies have been written about the special bond between people and horses. Come to know this ancient truth on a horseback journey through the heart of the Tuscan countryside.
You'll leave the city behind and strike out into the country in the comfort of a private van. Your first stop? An old riding school tucked away in the Tuscan hills. Prepare to meet your new friends, the horses who will be your sure-footed companions as you trek the verdant fields. If you've never been on a horse before, have no fear. Experienced equestrians are on hand to introduce you to your horse and get you in the saddle in no time.
The Tuscan countryside is punctuated by the rolling hills that make up 68% of the region's terrain. These hills cool the warmth of the Mediterranean sun, making for a pleasant climate. You'll ride past vineyards (Tuscany is the third-most planted region in Italy) and olive groves, skirting the native woods that dot the land. Bask in the warmth of your surroundings and let nature replenish your spirit.
Horseback riding and sightseeing are sure to work up an appetite. Round out your country getaway with a traditional Tuscan lunch, including wine. Try varieties of meats like salami and prosciutto, and perhaps sample Tuscan bread made the old fashioned way, without salt. You'll leave Tuscany with a full belly and lifelong memories.
If you feel like you're in a movie as you ride through the Tuscan countryside on horseback, you won't be very far off. Dozens of movies have been filmed in the region of Tuscany. While A Room with a View brought us into Florence at the turn of the last century, the movie you may most identify with on this tour is Gladiator. In Maximus's dreams of heaven, the softly swaying grasses of the Elysian Fields belong in our world to the hills of Tuscany. You'll quickly see why Tuscany is an ideal setting for cinematic paradise
