A bird's eye view of the legendary Chianti Landscape
Serene, thrilling and a feeling a freedom that is totally unique! Florencetown offers you an amazing experience with breathtaking views. The hot air balloon is the oldest successful human-carrying flight technology. This airborne adventure allows you to travel with the wind so you never know exactly where you’ll fly or what you’ll see. Marvel at the beautiful Tuscan landscape hundreds or even thousands of feet below. Flights take place near dawn and dusk when the wind is the most calm. Arrive at the launch site to be welcomed by your pilot. Our pilots are experienced professionals with Commercial Balloon Pilot Licenses and many hundreds of hours of experience, so you’re in safe hands. The pilot will introduce you to hot air ballooning and give you a full safety briefing. Climb into the balloon basket for lift-off, rising smoothly towards the clouds. It’s an almost motionless experience so have your camera ready for amazing views of the patchwork landscape and possible wildlife sightings.The only thing breaking the silence will be the occasional roar of the burners. After a magical hour in the sky, the pilot will find a suitable landing spot and bring the balloon to land. Still glowing from the experience, enjoy a glass of Champagne (or soft drink if you prefer), followed by a pleasant drive through the Chianti. After this experience, you can relax, reflect and regale while tasting some lavish Chianti wines at a nearby winery before getting back to the hotel.
