What You Can Expect

Tuscany Hot Air Balloon Flight

Fly over Tuscany in an attention-grabbing hot air balloon!

Make your own way to the launch spot in the hilltop village of San Casciano Val di Pesa, roughly 9 miles (15km) from Florence. Alternatively, upgrade your experience to include hotel pickup and drop-off from central Florence.

Meet your expert captain and crew, listen to a safety briefing and help inflate your hot air balloon, if you wish. Then, step into the basket and take to the skies on a 1-hour hot air balloon flight over Tuscany! Each basket holds between four and 16 people, and there’s plenty of room for you to sightsee comfortably as you soar up and away.

Look out onto the beautiful rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, dotted with lovely villages, vineyards, cypress trees, castles, olive groves and fruit orchards. Cruising at a maximum height of 2,000 feet (609 meters), the hot air balloon lends itself to panoramic views that stretch for miles over the picturesque landscape.

After landing, toast this special day with a glass of Champagne! Then, either bid your crew goodbye, or finish with a hotel drop-off back in Florence.

It was a surprise for my wife and we both loved it. We saw the Tuscany sunrise and had a very pleasant ride over Tuscany. The views were spectacular! There was a weather forecast issue and they were able to accommodate a change. I would recommend this to anyone. We had a pickup from the hotel which worked very well. The pilot was very nice and professional.

This was an absolutely amazing experience! The crew was accommodating from start to end, by giving us helpful directions, making sure we felt comfortable about the procedures, and getting to know us at the end with delicious snacks and drinks after landing. Our pilot was an award winning balloonist, which made us feel a lot more confident about the safety. The view is breathtaking and so peaceful at the top. Make sure to wear covered shoes and pants, because you may have to walk through some overgrown fields, depending on landing opportunities. The early wake-up was definitely worth it! I am definitely going to write another glowing review on their specific website.
