Full description

Celebrate aspecial occasion in a truly unforgettable way: a private hot-air balloon flight over the Tiber valley, amidst archaeological remains and enchanting Apennine landscapes.

You will fly over the Sabina hills, river terraces on the Tiber and thearchaeological site of Otricoli in the direction of the countryside surrounding the capital.

On board the hot-air balloon just you, the pilot and the people with whom you wish to share this wonderful experience!

What we will do

The meeting point is in Otricoli, not far from Magliano Sabina. You will fly early in the morning to take advantage of the best wind conditions and cooler temperatures that allow the hot air balloon to take off with ease.

Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by the pilot and ground crew and watch the hot air balloon being prepared. You will then board the basket and be ready to take off.

The balloon's course will be decided by the currents of the day and , although the pilots' experience can predict it, it will never be exactly programmable: that is also the fascination of hot air ballooning, relying on the wind!

In any case, you will fly over the Tiber valley, in the Otricoli and Sabina hills, an area characterised by pre-Roman archaeological remains and hilly landscapes of great natural beauty.

We will fly from 40 to 60 minutes, reaching an altitude of approximately 500 metres, but also flying lower so as to skim the leaves of the trees!

On arrival, the crew will be waiting to take us back to the starting point by jeep, but only after we have finished with a toast and a taste of local products! The experience lasts a total of about 3.5 hours.
