Full description

Let the wind blow you away and enjoy the wonder of the Sienese skies at dawn aboard a hot-air balloon. If you are looking for a unique, original and affordable experience, this is the activity for you!

Flying in a hot-air balloon is anextraordinary emotion, to be experienced at least once in a lifetime. The sensation of touching the sky with your finger, floating in the air and looking down on the world from above will be priceless!

The flight, lasting about an hour, is the centrepiece of the experience, which begins with the preparation of the hot-air balloon together with the crew.

We put in the professionalism of the guides and the safety of the equipment, you put in curiosity and enthusiasm, and the rest is done by the magical atmosphere of dawn and the urban and naturalistic wonders of Siena and the Crete Senesi, the particular hilly areas to the south-east of the city, known for their 'lunar' appearance. What are you waiting for? Get on board!

What we will do

We will meet early in the morning at the meeting point in Castelnuovo Berardenga, in the province of Siena, 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 the beautiful landscape of Siena from above. The city and surrounding hills will appear to us in an unprecedented and beautiful guise, and we will be ready to immortalise them to always have a memory of them.

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

The activity lasts a total of 2.5 hours, including one hour of actual flight time.
