Riding in Lazio:
Cities, villages suspended in time, abandoned places and natural wonders make Lazio one of the favorite destinations for fans of equestrian tourism that here, more than anywhere else, can experience the thrill of a journey through time through a series of itineraries capable of revealing the evocative atmosphere of the time that was.

Examples include North Francigena, an ancient route that brings thousands of pilgrims to Rome every year and which in Lazio territory starts from the village of ProcenoAnd the South Francigena made up of ancient road ways, with branches and alternative routes, which constitute the access route of the capital to the pilgrimage to the Holy Land (and vice versa).
Even the Etruscan Valley, which skirts the Mignone River with a meandering path that passes under the Monterano Nature Reserve, is a great hike to face on horseback on a territory without housing settlements that plunges into tufa gorges and skirts areas of high archaeological value such as the necropolis of S. Giovanale And the Civita di Tarquinia with the famous Queen’s Ara.
