Hot air balloon ride
Are you looking for adventure? An unique idea? You should try the magic of a hot air balloon ride, the world that shades under your feet. The tour starts from Palazzo Leopoldo. Transfer in private car up to zone for the flight. The experience starts from the inflation of the balloon at ground level, a moment which has all the anticipation of flying. Once the balloon is ready, it's time to jump up into the basket and prepare one's camera.
Rides last from 45 minutes to one and a half hours, during which, thanks also to smooth flying conditions, you may take the opportunity to shoot wonderful images of exclusively Tuscan landscape: admire the infamous "red-roofed" towns and follow the course of bashful wild animals taking "flight" in the fields below. The first light of dawn creates the magic frame for the scene your eyes are observing. While flying above you can learn about the terrain and its history from the Pilot's tales. At the end of the tour, having had a smooth landing, and following in the tradition of Hot Air Balloon fans, the success of the flight shall be celebrated with a glass of Champagne. And then the return to the hotel.
