What to expect

Experience a totally different perspective on beautiful Siena as you soar over it in a hot air balloon. Then admire the Tuscan countryside from 2,000 feet (609 meters) – a landscape of cypress trees, fruit orchards, vineyards, villages, castles and the rolling hills that make this region one of the world’s most beautiful.

You can make your own way to the meeting point. Alternatively, you can be picked up from your Siena hotel in the early morning and driven to the launch spot just north or south of the city (on request, extra fee).

After being greeted by your expert captain and crew, you’ll receive an overview and safety briefing. If you wish, you can help with the inflation of the hot air balloon before climbing into the basket for your flight.

Upon landing, toast this experience with a glass of sparkling wine! You’ll then be driven back to the launch site. Make your own way back to central Siena, or request a convenient drop-off at your hotel.
