Medieval Castles Ride in Tuscany


Medieval Castles Ride in Tuscany
Tuscany Italy
This is a special week dedicated to a progressive riding program which leads riders across our region using three different castles as sleepover points. We start by exploring the two lakes (Mezzano and Bolsena) set in the craters of the extinct volcanoes surrounding  S. Cristina Castle.  On the third day we move on into Tuscany, reaching the fortress of the Tufo town of Sorano via a lunch stop at the ruined medieval town of Vitozza. Later we cross the impressive landscape under the Amiata mountains, through river valleys and over the mountainous terrain to reach  Proceno castle. The final day we finish back at S. Cristina Castle, wandering through Montorio game reserve and the beautiful countryside around Onano.

You will be comfortably accommodated in two different medieval castles and a fortress: The Castle of Proceno, the Castle Santa Cristina and the Fortress of Sorano.
