What You Can Expect

Piedmont and Lombardy Hot Air Balloon Flight with Transport from Milan

Fly over the Emilia-Romagna region!

You’ll be picked up from your Milan hotel in the early morning and driven to the launch spot near Crema, San Colombano al Lambro or Lod, depending on local wind and weather conditions. Alternatively, you can make your own way there. When you arrive, receive a safety briefing and watch the inflation of the giant balloon, and then step inside the basket for a thrilling 1-hour flight. Each basket holds an average of 14 people, so there’s room for you to sightsee comfortably as you soar up and away.

Rise up and over the mountainous region of Piedmont at an altitude of 2,000 feet (610 meters). Enjoy aerial views of sprawling valleys, rolling hillsides and the winding Adda River, with the French and Swiss Alps in the distance. Near the town of Cassano d’Adda, glide over perched castles such as Castello di San Colombano and Castello di Pizzighettone.

Each flight offers a different experience, as the balloons are directed by the breeze. If you fly a bit further east, you’ll also see the famous River Po. Upon landing, enjoy a glass of sparkling wine (or juice, if you prefer) to commemorate your unforgettable hot air balloon flight. You’ll then be driven back to the launch site. Depending on your option selected, make your own way back to central Milan, or enjoy convenient drop-off at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Our hot air balloon ride experience was outstanding thanks to our pilot Guido Montemurro. His professional dedication to safety and first class service was evident from the moment he picked us up at our Milan accommodation and all through our incredible morning together. Guido has competed in international balloon events as part of Balloon Team Italia and is a great ambassador for his sport. He brings good cheer to all who shared a welcoming wave and I would highly recommend this tour with Guido.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

The balloon team was excellent in working with us to reschedule to fit our itinerary and allowed us to participate outside of Florence a few days later while we were there and that was amazing. Would highly recommend the balloon team italia, especially down south. Milan's nice, Tuscany's better.
