Overview

Our stable is located in the heart of Ancient Rome, on the Appian Way and we are the only one allowed to organize horseback ride along the Queen of Road! You can reach our stable with a 20mins taxi from the Colosseum or also with public transport. If you love horses, nature and history, a walk on horseback along the spectacular Appian Way and surrounding Park will be an experience you will never forget. With expert guides and horsemen, Sandro Bernardini and Andrea, you will see archeological treasures, some of which would be difficult to reach except on horseback. Sandro’s family has been in the area for over a century and he is a knowledgable guide, well versed in history as well as local lore. With 20 years of experience in equestrian tourism, we have created itineraries for all tastes and levels of riding experience (including none!)

I had the most amazing time. Horses are well looked after. I did a two hour ride and am an experienced rider. Horse was quiet but happy to trot and canter. The guide was very pleasant and made me feel welcome. Worth the money.
