• Chianti Afternoon horseback ride and dinner in Fiesole

    Afternoon horseback ride near Florence and Fiesole hotel dinner combo

Horseback afternoon tour and romantic sunset dinner in Fiesole


From our convenient meeting points in central Florence, an English-speaking driver will transfer you to a riding school in the Chianti hills while relating some interesting information about the area.

Upon arrival at the stables, our expert riding tutors will match you with suitable horses and introduce you to the basics of safe and pleasurable horse riding. A 1-hour horseback ride on easy tracks suitable for all levels of riding expertise will reward you with an unforgettable experience surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of this picturesque area in the celebrated Chianti countryside.

After parting with your newfound equine friend, the driver will take you to a luxury hotel in Fiesole, the quaint Etruscan town nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Arno valley and Florence. A romantic candle-light dinner will be served on the exclusive panoramic terrace, with breathtaking views of the sun setting over Florence. The menu comprises a pasta dish of your choice, grilled sliced sirloin steak and vegetables, à la carte glass of wine, bottled water and dessert.

At the end of this leisurely meal, around 10pm, a short drive down the hill will take you back to your downtown drop-off point. Please note that the restaurant has a relaxed dress code, so you will not need to change from the sports clothing required for the afternoon horse ride.
