Full description

If you are looking for a unique, original experience suitable for everyone, a hot air balloon flight is for you! Let yourself be carried away by the wind and enjoy the magic of sunrise or sunset floating in the skies over the Veneto plain above the medieval town of Cittadella, in the province of Padua.

The sensation of touching the sky with your finger and watching the world from above will be priceless and you will experience anextraordinary emotion that you will not easily forget!

The flight, lasting about an hour, is the central moment of the experience, which begins with the preparation of the hot-air balloon together with the crew. Then you will fly over the UNESCO World Heritage site of Cittadella, a real walled city that has remained intact since the Middle Ages. A truly unique leap into the past!

We provide the professionalism of the guides and the safety of the equipment, you provide curiosity and enthusiasm, and the rest is done by the magical atmosphere of dawn and the historical wonders of the medieval town of Cittadella, in the province of Padua.

What we will do

We will meet in Galliera Veneta, in the province of Padua, at least half an hour before departure. Together we will prepare the hot-air balloon and, once the air inside the balloon has warmed up, we will be ready to take off.

We will fly in peace and safety, captained by an experienced pilot and carried by the wind, at its speed and direction. During the hour-long flight, we will admire from above the splendid medieval landscape of Cittadella, the lush, green Veneto plain, and the loops of the River Brenta, which wind majestically embracing the surrounding land. It will be a truly magical and unforgettable moment!

Upon landing, we will refit the hot air balloon together with the ground crew, who will accompany us back to the starting point.
