Medieval Castles Ride in Tuscany


Medieval Castles Ride in Tuscany
Tuscany Italy

The Medieval Castle Trail follows the boundary between southern Tuscany and northern Lazio, where the tuff rock hills provide both the foundations and the building materials for spectacular towns like Sorano and Pitigliano.  The towns are embedded in an area which displays a very rich cultural and historical background – the first Etruscan settlements and the former border area of the State of the Vatican City.

Follow the tracks made by the oldest of Italian inhabitants and through the "Vie Caves", ancient and mysterious Etruscan pathways carved out of the rock. You can ride along them just as the Etruscans did thousands of years ago. Carved deep into the rock bed, it is almost like being in a cave, but they are left open at the top, leaving the sky visible above. Ride across the Tuff plateaus, through lush evergreen forests, following old border trails and ancient Etruscan and Roman roads of South Tuscany and Northern Lazio.  Discover one of the most unique, rural and original landscapes of Italy, where the horse tradition was born and for centuries took  part in  the lives and culture of its inhabitants.

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.
