Full description

Experience an unforgettable hot-air balloon flight over the skies of Siena and admire the city'smedieval architecture from above.

Following the wind currents, you will fly over Piazza del Campo and the main monuments, until you cross the city limits to fly over the rolling Tuscan hills.

By booking a private flight, you will carry out the activity in total privacy: on board the wicker basket only you, the pilot, and whoever you wish to take with you on this marvellous panoramic journey.

What we will do

The flight takes place in the early morning hours to take advantage of the best currents. Usually take-off is in the area of Castelnuovo Berardenga (SI), but the take-off point may vary depending on the winds of the day and is confirmed by the pilot the evening before the flight.

Once at the site, the balloon will be prepared, the burner ignited, and the balloon inflated. Then there will be a briefing on behaviour and safety rules , and finally, you will board the basket, ready for take-off.

The moment when the balloon lifts off the ground and begins to gain altitude will be amazing, as will the whole trip! Following the wind currents, you will fly towards Siena to admire from above themedieval architecture of one of Tuscany's most fascinating cities.

The flight will last about one hour. Landing will be followed by the presentation of theflight certificate and a breakfast of typical products. In total, the activity will last about 3 hours and will end with the return to the initial meeting point, carried out with the organisation's vehicles.
