Your early morning balloon flight presents the legendary Chianti landscape in its most enchanting light. As you glide between the region’s iconic landmarks, you’ll pass over picturesque olive groves, vineyards and woodlands spread over the verdant valleys. Once the balloon is packed away, move on to enjoy a champagne breakfast prepared with local produce.
On clear days, your flight reveals the reaching spires of Florence before the backdrop of the Apennine Mountains to the north. Gaze to the west to see historic towns such as San Gimignano and Volterra, and the distant coastline. To the south, view the architecturally impressive towns of Poggibonsi and Siena, and the lava-formed Monte Amiata. Eastward, look upon the forest-clad peak of Monti del Chianti.
It takes around 30 minutes for the balloon to inflate before you’re up in the air. You will fly for approximately one hour, and a retrieving vehicle follows you, so you don’t have to finish where you began. After breakfast, you are transferred back to Florence.
