About Florence Country Life


Florence Country Life is an expert tour consultant specializing in horseback riding tours in Tuscany. We offer horseback adventures for all levels of expertise, even for complete novices and children.

We also offer a select number of small-group, exclusive experiences for discerning visitors in and around Florence.

We are passionate riders. For over thirty years we have been horseback riding throughout Tuscany, so we know trails for horseback riding ranging from one hour to several days' duration.

By first-person experience we also know the best restaurants, taverns, shops and farms in the Florentine countryside, and we routinely include them in our horseback tours so our guests can enjoy the Tuscan countryside at its best.

Florence Country Life will pick you up from central Florence and take you to the countryside for an exciting horseback ride and a taste of typical Tuscan dishes and great Chianti wines!
