11 Apr Hot Air Ballooning & Breakfast
Possibly the most romantic and adventurous way to see Tuscany is up high in the heavens with a private hot air balloon ride taking off just as the sun rises over the rolling hills of Chianti.
An early morning private transfer from Florence ensures you arrive just as the crystal clear skies break at dawn over the Val di Pesa just south of the Tuscan capital where your personal balloon is waiting ready to take you up into the clouds with a flight over ancient castles and villages, lush vineyards and clusters of olive groves that this famed region is renowned for.
Post flight, when back on terra firma, guests enjoy a sumptuous breakfast with prosecco, the Italian sparkling wine, along with local meats and cheeses, fresh breads and delicious Extra Virgin oil olive. On request we can also arrange balloon flights close to Siena or the Colle Val d’Elsa, which takes in the magnificent medieval towns of Monteriggioni, San Gimignano and Casole d’Elsa.
