• Horseback riding and fishing in Chianti

    Horseback trail in the hills of Florence and Tuscan lunch by a fishing lake

Horseback ride, fishing and lunch in the Chianti countryside


With a short private transfer from downtown Florence you will reach our riding center, where after a brief introduction your Florence Country Life guides will take you through vineyards and olive groves on a fascinating horse track to explore the famous Chianti countryside.

From mounting your horse to your return to the stables, this will be an unforgettable experience away from the tourist crowds.

The tour continues with a pleasant transfer to a lovely fishing lake, where you can enjoy an alfresco lunch of typical Tuscan specialties with extra virgin olive oil and excellent Chianti wine. For dessert you will try the famous Vinsanto sweet wine and Cantucci almond biscuits.
After lunch you will have plenty of time to enjoy this beautiful location among the hills just south of Florence. Relax in the shade or sunbathe on a deckchair by the lake, enthralled by the glittering on the water surface, the gentle rustling of the leaves on the poplar trees and the chirping of cicadas; or engage in sport fishing, and have fun trying to catch a carp, a trout or a big sturgeon.

Our exclusive program allows you will spend a wonderful and unusual day in the Chianti hills, and return to Florence with some of the best memories of your Tuscan vacation.
