Horses
It's coming: the 5th edition of Equus Terre di Siena, the event for passionates of horses in Tuscany. The main appointment is next Sunday, August 1st, 9.30pm at Il Poggio Equestrian Center where you can expect more than a traditional horse show: the theme of the night is the Via Francigena, the ancient road between Rome and Canterbury, passing through England, France, Switzerland and Italy. A group of actors, dancers and horsemen will represent the trips of pilgrims in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance.

Tuscany by horse

But if you love horses I think you are interested in more than watching, right? A special selection of paths and tours are available until July 31st and it includes for example the road used for Ghino di Tacco, a popular outlaw in the thirteenth century (the Italian Robin Hood!).
