Ride a horse on the hills of Assisi, in the footsteps of St. Francis

Back to the exploration

Ride a horse on the hills of Assisi, in the footsteps of St. Francis

Ride on a magnificent horse and enjoy nature and peace of mind following in the footsteps of St Francis

An excursion through lush, gently-rolling countryside on paths travelled by St Francis, crossing the hills between Assisi from Gubbio. Riding our beautiful, impressive but very docile horses, you’ll be able to ride through these hills on small paths full of dense vegetation right up to the top of the hills which, besides offering total peace and serenity, provide breath-taking views across the entire area.

So, jump in the saddle and get to know your horse: begin by listening to him and let him get to know you, then all you have to do is let yourself be carried majestically along mule tracks with their gnarly roots and branches, to boundless clearings.

You will be accompanied along the entire route by our experienced professionals who know the horses really well and are experts in guiding groups of horse riders. They’ll be able to give you any other information you may need.

All you have to do is choose this tour option and open yourself up to adventure, discovery, exhilarating sensations and inner peace.
