Overview
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.

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),...More

There is a company that works with balloon called 3rd service. You can contact them and arrange transportation at a cost. But you have to be at launch site by 5am. They have other launch sites that may be closer to Florence... More
