A TRUE EXPERIENCE
IN THE NATURE OF TUSCANY

Arianna & Friends arranges a fascinating full-day tour to the charming area of the hills around Livorno. The tour is focused on a wonderful horse riding trek and on a visit to a small and very picturesque village.
This tour is available for a maximum of 6 people.




Here the outline:

8.30 am - Private transfer by minivan (up to 7 people) from the port of Livorno. Our English speaking operator meets you directly at the ship in the morning at your convenience and tours you for the whole day. The tour leader gives you an interesting introduction to the region Tuscany, its uses, facts and history, while reaching the place. French, German, Russian, Spanish and Italian are also possible.

9 am - In just 30 minutes we reach the riding ground and meet our experienced horse riding guides. We familiarize with the peaceful and well-trained horses by cleaning them and saddling them before we start.

9.30 am - The horseriding excursion is set in a charming countryside of hills, gravel roads and pathways in the woods. The gait is mostly walk of little difficulty but some trot is possible for expert riders.

11.30 am - The destination of the trek is the Sanctuary Madonna dei Monti: a breathtaking panoramic hilltop with a small rural church and an unforgettable atmosphere of peace and relaxation.

12.30 am - The excursion continues across the small village Sant'Ermo and pauses at a small and picturesque agriturismo for a 1-hour lunch break, where selected local specialities are served in a very beautiful setting.

3 pm - In the afternoon we get back to the riding ground and from here we drive 10 minutes and reach the entrance of an enchanting medieval town where we walk through the narrow lanes leading to the Castle of the Vicars, on the hilltop. We walk in a circle along breathtaking panoramic castle walls before getting into the old rooms and down to the underground dungeons, once called "the Hell".

3.15 pm - Opposite the castle is a world famous family-run pasta factory and its odd premises right in the old town. We visit the pasta workshop and see how the small machinery makes Spaghetti, Penne or Maccheroni. Before leaving the town we also taste a locally produced cherry liquor.

4.30/5 pm - Return within the early evening, depending on the docking time of the cruiseship.

- Allergies: riders must bring any drug they make use of in case of allergies. They also must inform the guides in case of allergies towards common medicines.

- Clothing: comfortable clothes are recommended. To avoid bites of insects, sandals, shorts and T-shirts are not suitable.
