New Ballooing in Tuscany
Ballooning in Tuscany is licensed in Italy for commercial passenger balloon flights by both the British and Italian Civil Aviation Authorities. Pilots are professionals with Commercial Balloon Pilot Licenses and many hundreds of hours of experience—so you are in safe hands.
They are only 73 km from il Fontanaro.
The “Ballooning in Tuscany” idea started in 1990 with the formation of the Discovery Club which promoted the sport in the central Tuscany area near Siena, about 50 miles south of Florence. Italians have taken to the idea although many of our airborne adventurers are British, German, Swiss, American, Canadian, Brazilian, Australian or Japanese tourists, lured by the picture-book landscape, the long hot summers, the food and wine, and of course, for its artistic treasures.
The location of the launch site is an important element of a balloon ride. They take off froman enchanted valley, hidden below Montisi, surrounded by woods, pastures and a truffle reserve. The valley is a haven for wild animals including deer, badgers, the occasional wild boar and many birds.
Flights are tightly restricted in numbers and availability and filled on a first-come basis. Reservations are final upon confirmation of availability and subsequent receipt of full payment.
