Begin your tour in Carru, an hour south of Turin. Participate in a brief safety overview while the balloon inflates.
Hop aboard the basket with your captain and set off into the sky, at an altitude of some 2,000 feet (610 meters). Peer down at the villages, vineyards and castles dotting the landscape, and soar over the wine regions of Langhe and Barolo, home to some of Italy’s most prominent blends, including Barbaresco, Asti, Dogliani and Barolo.
Enjoy a unique view of the Alps as you straddle the Italian-Swiss border. Keep an eye out for the Monte Rosa Massif and Monte Cervino, as well as the Maritime Alps along the French border. Then, travel over Turin, the vibrant capital of the Piedmont region.
Back on ground, toast your flight with a glass of sparkling wine. From there, you’ll be shuttled to your original departure point at the launch. Upgrade your ticket to include transportation back to your hotel in Turin.
