Reviews for Tuscany horse riding vacation in Italy


review 27 Oct 2014

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Definitely, the best aspect of this trip was the horse riding. The horses were healthy and well-behaved. Riding along side sky-high cypress trees, between rows of vineyards, and past ancient ruins and rural villas was quite an experience. The pace was comfortable - with plenty of lively canters! We stayed at the riding center in the owner's restored family home. My sister and I shared a room that overlooked the stables. We fell asleep to the gentle sound of nickers.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

This itinerary incorporated a lovely mix of riding and history. The Center's owner, Jenny, developed a program that combines her love of horses and history. She organized trips to a local town to experience their market day, to another nearby town to view beautiful frescos, and a yet another town for a fabulous lunch at a restaurant perched above a ravine.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Most definitely. This program allowed us to visit several local towns and experience the local lifestyles - visiting museums, markets, shops, restaurants, etc. Additionally, our meals at the Center were comprised of organic, locally-grown produce, fresh meats and breads - all purchased from local vendors.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?
