Balloon Flight Over Tuscany: Florence

1. Balloon Flight Over Tuscany: Florence

Experience the magical feeling of flying high above the cypress-studded hills and vineyards of Tuscany on a 1-hour hot air balloon flight from Florence. The adventure begins as soon as you arrive at the take-off field, which is dependent on weather conditions and will be provided to you the day before your flight. Watch as the balloons are inflated and prepared before your eyes. Once the pilots have done their final checks and given you a briefing about flight safety, climb into the balloon basket and begin your float to altitudes of up to 2,000 feet (6,000 meters). Glide over valleys and castles, enjoying breathtaking panoramic views of the rolling scenery below. Each flight offers a different experience, as the balloons are directed by the breeze. Upon landing, enjoy a glass of sparkling champagne and a breakfast with local products before the transfer shuttle back to your take-off site.

The tour in the small family business was nicely designed and all questions were answered. All of the oils we tried were very tasty. What was particularly positive was that the olive oils and other products could be bought afterwards but were not imposed, as is sometimes known from tourist tours. We can definitely recommend this tour.

It was just the two of us and she had all the time for us. Extra nice to see one of the owners also working on the wine and the barrels! Highly recommended the olive oil tasting with the wine tasting. Downside, you want to buy everything ;)
