Full description

Imagine: the first light ofdawn, the spectacle of the balloons inflating, the thrill of floating through the sky admiring breathtaking views.

All this only with a hot-air balloon flight, a unique experience to try at least once in a lifetime. And with the private flight over Siena and the Crete Senesi, you can share it with the people you love most by reserving the hot-air balloon just for you.

Once you have climbed into the wicker basket, the wind will become your guide, taking you on a unique and unrepeatable journey through the sky, where you will discover Siena's palaces, small villages, isolated farmhouses and long rows of cypress trees.

Upon landing, a delicious refreshment with a bottle of prosecco and snacks will be waiting for you, a worthy conclusion to this unforgettable experience.

What we will do

We will meet at the appointed time at the take-off point near Siena. We will welcome you and accompany you to your private hot-air balloon and, with the first light of dawn, we will start inflating the balloon.

When everything is ready, we will hold a briefing in which we will give you some instructions on how to enjoy the experience safely, and then we will enter the wicker basket one by one.

Once up in the basket, the wind will choose the direction of our journey through the sky, which is why each flight is unique and unrepeatable. Depending on the wind conditions, we will be able to admire from above all the palaces that make Siena the medieval city par excellence.

We will also be able to admire the Crete Senesi, a lunar landscape with hills and depressions. Looking out from the basket we will see small villages, isolated farmhouses and long rows of cypress trees. After about one hour of flight, it will be time to land.

At the landing point, you will find a table laid with a refinedmise en place. On top, you will find a bottle of prosecco in a silver-plated ice chest, crystal glasses with which to toast to the experience you have just had, a few snacks. Finally, our staff will take you back to the take-off point in a private Land Rover Discovery jeep.

The total duration of the experience, including briefing, balloon inflation and refreshments will be 3 hours.
