Home to some of the world’s most iconic paintings, the Vatican Museums attract huge crowds. Save yourself hours of waiting by booking this skip-the-line tour of the Sistine Chapel, Raphael’s Rooms, and St. Peter’s Basilica (when the option is selected) in Rome. Early morning and evening tour options mean you can explore the complex during far less crowded time slots. Upgrade to a small-group tour limited to 10 people for a more personalized experience.

Horseriding on the Appia Antica was on my bucketlist for quite a long time, so after the lockdown I decided to finally book a 3-hour-ride. Best decision ever! I had a wonderful time; everyone was so nice, and eventhough I was a bit nervous to speak Italian they really kept talking to me and helping me where possible. The communication beforehand was very easy and quick, even when I had to make a last-minute change this wasn't a problem. During the ride they had a lot of information about the Appia Antica and surroundings, so nice to see how proud they are of the place. And justly, it is absolutely beautiful there! The horses are clearly well-cared for and very lively and energetic, but despite quite a lot of wind they kept listening very well. After the ride Lorella was even nice enough to drop me off at the Metrostation so that I didn't have to walk. One of the best experiences I had so far being in this beautiful city, and I will definetely visit there again!

I recently booked a horse and guide for a two hour ride along the Via Appia. I owned and rode horses as a kid, but it has been awhile since I've been riding. This was such a great experience. Lorella made it so easy to book the ride via email. The stable is a quick taxi ride from the center of Rome, but in reality a world away. It is calm and peaceful, and the countryside surrounding Rome is indeed tranquil. I was paired with a horse who knew his way around and was a little frisky in his old age. Sandro, my guide, was really knowledgeable about all of the architecture and history along the Via Appia; he was a perfect guide. Our afternoon was capped by eating lunch in the barn made by the owner's grandma. This meal was fresh, delicious, and quintessentially Roman. It was a wonderful way to end our time at the stable. I could not think of a better way to spend a day in Rome than this.

I booked a 3 hour ride as an experienced rider, speaking little to no Italian. Upon arrival it was easy to see the horses were glossy and fit - obviously well cared for! The stables were beautifully rustic but clean and tidy too We set off quickly and I was taught many fascinating things about the history of our surroundings, I had the chance to trot and gallop, we saw some gorgeous scenery and I had my photo taken at a couple of points It was a wonderful experience and I would definitely return I loved my horse, she looked after me but was happy to step it up a gear as a rider We were invited to sit and enjoy our lunch after the ride and were joined by some friendly barn cats too A true taste of the Italian countryside!

Second time on horseback, but Sandro (guide) was calming and had complete control all the way. My companion was an experienced rider and was allowed to unfold herself. Both very happy. The scenery was beautiful and very interesting stories along the way. And to top it off we had a great meal at the end, homemade from the grandma. Eduardo took great care of us and was the greatest host.
