- Perhaps one of the best places in the world to fly
- The magic of balloon flight is that nature is your pilot
Can there be any finer landscape to fly over than that of Tuscany? Rolling hills of olive
groves and vineyards, ancient townships and fairytale castles - it’s just beautiful, and of
course there’s no better way to appreciate this work of art than from a graceful hot air
balloon. You’ll fly with a professional pilot, watching as the balloon is inflated before a
takeoff shortly after dawn - so gentle, you may not even realise you’re aloft until you look
down! So elegant, romantic and fun - this Tuscany gift experience is a true work of art!
The great beauty of ballooning is that the pilot is only partly in charge. It is the wind
conditions that dictate what direction you’ll fly, and how fast you’ll be going. One thing is for
sure however, and that is you’ll be followed by a trust support crew ready to pick you up
after your one-hour flight. You may land in a field, in the grounds of a Tuscan villa, or even in
a castle! And once you climb out of the basket, you’ll be treated to a sumptuous champagne
breakfast accompanied by some local Tuscan produce.
