Full description

Admiring the 'Pearl of Umbria' from above is an experience to be had at least once in a lifetime. Let yourself be carried away by the magic of a hot-air balloon flight in Todi, flying over the rolling Umbrian hills at dawn.

During the approximately one-hour flight you will be able to observe from this exciting perspective the buildings of the medieval town of Todi, built on a hill overlooking the Tiber river and the villages in the valley. You will enjoy the panorama in total safety and tranquillity in the company of experienced pilots.

Coming back down to earth won't be so bad, because after the flight a toast with prosecco and snacks awaits you. Cheers to the beauty of Umbria's landscapes!

What we will do

We will meet at the take-off point in Todi, at the time we will notify you before departure. You will be able to watch the balloon inflate while the sky is tinged with the colours of dawn. It will be a magical moment in which to foretaste the beauty of flight!

When everything is ready, we will hold a short briefing in which we will give you some pointers on how to enjoy the experience safely and then we will enter the wicker basket of the balloon one by one. Slowly the balloon will lift off the ground and the landscape around us will begin to change. The wind will decide the direction of our journey through the sky, which is why each flight is unique and unrepeatable.

Depending on the winds, we will be able to admire from above the most famous buildings in Todi, such as the Palazzo del Popolo, the Palazzo dei Priori and the Duomo, overlooking the main square. We will be able to spot the bell tower of the church of San Fortunato and the iconic domes of the Tempio della Consolazione, one of the buildings that symbolise Renaissance architecture.

The surrounding hills will offer us the spectacle of a thousand different brushstrokes of colour, like an Impressionist painter's canvas: a scenery that will change with the seasons, among fields, stone farmhouses and country lanes.

The flight will last about an hour, but the excitement does not end there. At the landing point you will in fact find a table laid with a bottle of prosecco to toast the experience you have just had and some snacks.

Finally, we will take you back in a shared car to the take-off point, where you will have left your car, while the crew takes care of deflating the balloon. The total duration of the experience, including briefing, balloon inflation and refreshments, will be 3 hours.
