At the Veio Quarter Horses, our association, we'll have coffee and a little chat to get to know each other, then we will get the horses ready together and finally saddle up. We will take you for a ride in the nature of the Park of Veio, riding through forests and valleys, often crossing little streams. In these changing sceneries we will find ouselves immersed into a magical atmosphere, till we get to the remains of the Etruscan Town of Veio. It will be a special experience aiming to give you a different perspective of the nature and archaeology around Rome. We will end the ride back to the stables and after unsaddling the horses we will offer you a typical italian snack made with salami, cheese, pizza, taralli and a glass with local red wine.
Paolo and Cristiana founded Veio Q Horses driven by their passion for horses and thanks to their experience they are always been renowed in the area. Paolo and Cristiana are working together for 12 years. They work so that more people can have a taste of the magical atmosphere you can experience riding in the wonderful Park of Veio, so close to Rome but still unknown to the most.
Snacks Italian snacks with salami, local cheese, pizza, fresh drinks and red wine.
Riding gear Saddle, helmets, rain coats. Insurance is included.
We will ride on the Via Francigena to visit the ruins of the Etruscan city of Veio. Our project is to have people discover the Park of Veio through the eyes of native people that with their tales will share the little secrets you won't find in books.
