Flight Locations

Chianti

Chianti.  Our Tuscany Ballooning base and usual launch field from where the balloons takeoff is located  8 miles (25 min. drive) South of Florence along the Pesa valley strategically positioned along the main road leading from Florence to Siena.
From here we fly over the renowned Chianti wine region with its hill-top towns, castles, famous vineyards, silver olive groves and mixed woodlands. On very clear days in the distance you can see Florence to the North and the Apennine mountain range in the background, to the West you can see the Elsa valley, San Gimignano, Certaldo and Volterra and on high altitude flights even the sea in the far distance; to the South, Poggibonsi, Colle Val d’Elsa and Siena and Monte Amiata in the distance; to the East the higher ‘Monti del Chianti’ and mixed oak woodlands.

Siena

Siena.  Occasionally we do takeoff near Siena where we have several launch locations near the city. The views are breathtaking, it is however not always possible to fly right over the city as the flights are subject to suitable wind and weather conditions. A flight over the center of Siena is a wonderful experience; From this location you will get spectacular views of the warm glowing rose-colored brick of the Renaissance city. In the distance, you will see Chianti, its castles and vineyards and woods to the North; The soft rolling gray and sienna red hills and the Crete Senesi with the Monte Amiata in the distance to the South.
Should we not meet the minimum group size of four passengers, the flight may be rescheduled to another location. Alternative, 'Private' flight.

Colle Val d'Elsa, Mensanello, Monteriggioni, San Gimigano. Our launch field near Mensanello airfield is located on a plateau between the medieval towns of Monteriggioni, San Gimigano, Casole d'Elsa. Depending wind conditions sometimes we manage to fly right over one of these amazing towns.
The countryside in this area is very beutifull with its red soil and ancient oak forests.

Florence.  Balloon flights taking off from within the city of Florence are a rare and beutiful event. Due the vicinity of the International airport there aresome restrictions wherefore the flights from the city are possible only with very specific wind and weather conditions.  Our Firenze balloon takeoff is locted to the South of the city from where we fly low along the Arno river towards the centre and with the higher wind currents out into the Chianti hills.

Lucca, Capannori

Lucca.  On request we fly also near the ancient walled city of Lucca. The views of the town are breathtaking, It is however not always possible to fly right over the city as the flights are subject to suitable and specific wind and weather conditions. Overall the countryside surrounding the city is not as beautiful to fly over as the Chianty rolling hills.  However when we manage to fly right over the city centre the spectacle is one to remember!
