Horseback excursions in Tuscany’s Maremma but also in Sicily and Sardinia with Elesta Travelling Passion.

Riding through breathtaking landscapes 

Discovering rugged panoramas and breathtaking landscapes, travelling across plains and hills, past vineyards and coastlines, in a context rich in history, natural wonders, gastronomic specialities and traditions. From Tuscany’s Maremma, land of the butteri horsemen, to Sicily and Sardinia, Elesta Travelling Passion presents its new horseback tours, in collaboration with Horse Touring.

From Florence to Siena and on to Chianti 

The first tour proposed by Elesta departs from Florence for Siena, the city of the Palio, where this ancient tradition is kept alive all year round with great passion and participation by the city’s contrade districts. It then heads towards the south of Tuscany, to the border between Valdarno and Chianti, for a three-day full immersion in the ancient traditions of the Maremma butteri.

A visit to Rome’s former papal stables

This is a different formula to the more usual excursions on horseback. Here the objective is to allow participants to experience a true immersion by carrying out first-hand the daily activities of herd management on a real farm. This is possible thanks to Ernesto Benini, founder of the Dimensione Maremma association, who not only prepares the horses, but also supports the riders, guaranteeing unique emotions. After the Maremma experience the trip concludes with a stop in Rome, where a visit to the Scuderie del Quirinale, the papal stables, will provide insight into the presence and role that horses played in history and in art.
