Info and Description

If you are fond of equestrian tourism or simply love horses and nature, you may already know that in Tuscany , as well as in other regions of Italy there are itineraries on horseback , but also on foot or by bike, called horse trails . These itineraries are ideal for those who wish to spend their holidays in a farmhouse in Tuscany wishing to stay in nature and want to appreciate the beauty that surrounds them in all calm, catching every nuance.

What are the Hippos

The bridleways are circuits that pass through parks, villas, countryside and hills, designed and built so that they can only be traveled by non-polluting vehicles, such as horses or bicycles, without the slightest environmental impact. They have been designed for all those who like to spend their holidays in contact with nature and at the same time want to discover and discover wonderful places rich in tradition and culture. An excursion on horseback through these unique and almost uncontaminated itineraries will allow you to slowly enjoy and taste the smells, colors and sounds of nature, following their rhythm and beat, far from the frenzy that characterizes our daily life. Ideal for a weekend or a holiday in Tuscany Farmhouse.
Currently, in Tuscany, five bridleways have been created and officially recognized that correspond to as many itineraries of evocative beauty that cross the region far and wide, intersecting with some of the places of greatest interest from the historical, artistic and cultural point of view, including the Via Francigena .

The horse trails on the mountains

The Amiata Horse Trail crosses Monte Amiata, among chestnut and beech trees and the Ippovia di San Jacopo, the peaks of the Pistoia Apennines, where you could even meet some wolf specimens that have recently begun to repopulate these woods. In our opinion, this is one of the most interesting and varied bridleways that crosses nature trails and uncontaminated paths with a vast wealth of wildlife and flora, but not only. History, art, culture and science will accompany you on your journey to discover historic sites and villages such as the Villa Medicea of %u200B%u200BArtimino or Vinci , birthplace of Leonardo and Carmignano , land of production of an excellent DOC wine.

The horse trails near the sea

If the mountain is not for you and you are a lover of the sea, here is the Via dei Cavalleggeri which, crossing the Tuscan Maremma and its regional parks, the Park of San Rossore , the Maremma Park and the Apuan Alps Park , is the connecting all the watchtowers of the Tuscan coast, which once constituted the military outposts for the defense of the cities of Pisa , Livorno and Grosseto .
If you prefer a more cultural rather than naturalistic itinerary, we recommend the Sacred Forests Trail which will take you to discover the Casentinesi Forest Park, passing through castles and monasteries such as the Abbey of Vallombrosa and the Hermitage of Camaldoli . The Horse Trail of Siena , however, will take you on a journey through one of the most beautiful and evocative cities in Italy, passing through those lands with a unique and unmistakable ocher color. Romanesque parishes, monasteries, abbeys and castles will seem like timeless places where past, present and future merge and merge, creating an almost surreal atmosphere, suspended in a dimension unknown to us.
