Along the road we traverse the age-old trails of the Etruscans, Italy's early inhabitants long predating the Roman empire. Our journey leads us from the mountain pastures of Cornacchino, through the rugged Fiora river valley with its canyons carved by rushing streams in tuff rock. We pass through the Lamone forest, explore hermitages near the lower Fiora river, visit Lake Mezzano, an Etruscan burial site, and discover medieval villages along the route.

It's important to know
Your riding gear should be comfortable and most importantly, should not be brand new (especially footwear), since new gear often holds unpleasant surprises. The footwear should be comfortable not only for riding, but also for walking, with a hard sole that permits a good contact between foot and stirrup. Footwear with a slick sole and very tight clothing should be avoided. The trousers should be comfortable and robust. You may also need a raincoat , a hat for protection and swimwear; you should bring along a light jumper for the evening. The belongings should not be bulky since there is limited space on the transport vehicle and in the saddlebags. Please avoid suitcases with a hard surface.
Your guide can provide basic medication and will take along a first-aid kit on the trek. Any health conditions that require special medication should be brought to the attention of the guide before departure on the trek. Allergy sufferers should bring their own medicines, as those who suffer allergies from common medications.
