PRIVATE TOUR – A hot air balloon flight over the Chianti vineyards

Are you looking for a bird’s eye view from which you can immortalize the beauty of Florence and its surroundings? The common Giotto bell tower or Michelangelo Square are outdated! Choose a thrilling unforgettable experience, a hot air balloon flight!
Meeting with a private licensed tour guide and a private driver in the lobby of your hotel in Florence. Transfer to the outskirts of the city and meeting with an expert hot air balloon pilot for a short safety briefing. You will hop onto the basket, silently ascend and fly for about 1 hour’s length from a 900 to 3,000 feet’s height.

During that experience, your guide will give you some interesting information about the Tuscan countryside, which is so famous for its gentle hills, rows of cypresses, Chianti vineyards and olive groves!
At the end of your flight, the hot air balloon staff will welcome you back with a glass of local red Chianti. Back to your hotel by private car/minivan.
