Rise up gently from the ground and discover Chianti from an alternative perspective!
We are pleased to be in a “position” to offer you Tuscany from another perspective, a privileged point of view: a Hot-Air Balloon.
This unique experience will enable you to rise gently from the ground, be borne along by a gentle breeze above the incredible Chianti landscape, discover from a bird’s-eye point of view the historical towns and splendid vineyards which have in part created the legend of this breath-taking terrain….This is power of imagination – which comes true! You can fly like the wind in a mode which preserves the romanticism and adventure spirit of the art of flying!
The experience starts from the inflation of the balloon at ground level, a moment which has all the anticipation of flying…defined by one observer “the Pilot-dance”. Once the balloon is ready, it’s time to jump up into the basket and prepare one’s camera…
Rides last from 45 minutes to one and a half hours, during which, thanks also to smooth flying conditions, you may take the opportunity to shoot wonderful images of exclusively Tuscan landscape: admire the infamous “red-roofed” towns and follow the course of bashful wild animals taking “flight” in the fields below…. The first light of dawn creates the magic frame for the scene your eyes are observing…
Ballooning is the safest form of air travel. Your pilot will be a fully qualified Commercial Pilot with a wealth of experience. All flights are carried out in accordance with strict guidelines set out and monitored by the Civil Aviation Authority.
Pick up from your accommodation in the area of Florence by our private driver and transfers to the Balloon Port in the heart of the Chianti. Meeting with the crew (english speaking) for a briefing before the departure.
At the end of the tour, the success of the flight will be celebrated with a glass of Champagne. Before returning to your accommodation we’ll stop at the small village of Greve in Chianti for some shopping, relax and a visit of a local winery.
If you want is possible to extend the tour by visiting other parts of the charming Chianti region and a top rated winery. Ask to our booking office.
