We will meet at the take off point, about 20 minutes away from Florence, 30 minutes from Siena. After the briefing you will experience one of the most unique ways of flying. We will be surrounded by a peaceful silence, we will hear animals from the valley, and the majestic breath of the burner will accompany us during our experience. We will be up in the air for about one hour, the chase car will follow us. After landing and packing back the balloon we will go together to have a hearty breakfast in a lovely place with great local products., we will then go back to the original point. The whole experience will last about 2,5/3 hours. Since we fly with the wind, in rare occasions we will land in areas harder to reach by the chase car. In those cases it will take a bit more than 3 hours. In spring and summer, usually we will be back in Florence around 10am
I'm an EASA ( European Aviation Safety Agency ) hot air balloon licensed pilot. We will live together this beautiful adventure, as everyday is a completely unique experience. Flying is my passion, I will do my very best to make you feel what I feel everytime I'm up in the air. I did fly around Italy, participated to competions and went abroad in Europe and Saudi Arabia for ballooning events.
We will go to a local place to have a beautiful breakfast with local products!
We will fly and we will simply follow the wind. The wind will decide what we will see. Mainly we will fly over the beautiful Chianti area in Tuscany.
Sport or trekking shoes
Hot air balloon's flight heavily depends on the weather conditions. In case of rain or strong wind we will cancel the flight, since safety is always our first priority.
