The area in which we fly spans across parts of Tuscany and Umbria. It starts from Cortona and Montepulciano in the south and ends just south of Florence in the north. It consists of rolling hills and steep valleys, villages on hilltops, and isolated farmhouses and castles. We fly at dawn (approximately 6.00 am at mid-summer). Morning flights are nearly always possible. The inflation takes about 30 minutes, and we are usually back by mid-morning.The balloon flight normally lasts just over an hour and concludes with the traditional Prosecco toast and a hearty breakfast after which we load everything back on to the trailer of the chase vehicle which follows our flight from the launch site, and return home.

Amazing experience with a very kind and experienced crew. I am usually afraid of flying but had no fear of ballooning here because of the knowledge and expertise of the pilot and crew. I had an incredible experience and can't wait to balloon again! Everyone was so kind and

There are some things in life where it’s worth trusting to luck, and others where you really need to use professionals. Flying in an unpowered aircraft falls in to the latter category. Everyone at Ballooning in Tuscany (not to be confused with similar sounding companies), from

This was an experience of a lifetime. Montisi is already an amazing place, but seeing Tuscany from a birds eye view is a most wonderful experience. I'm somewhat afraid of heights, but had no problems soaring over Tuscany's hills and valleys. Nick our pilot is the best and
