Hot air balloon ride and Tuscan breakfast
Your Balloon Flight
We fly at dawn (approximately 6.00 am at mid-summer). Morning flights are nearly always possible, The balloon flight normally lasts just over an hour, and concludes with the traditional Champagne 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.
Where possible we follow the route that we took in the balloon, so that you can see from ground level what you noticed from the air.whereas evening flights are often difficult because of the sea breeze from the Mediterranean which can be quite stiff, and sometimes doesn’t drop until well after dark. The inflation takes about 30 minutes, and we are usually back by mid-morning.
After the balloon has taken off our Crew picks up freshly baked bread, pizza and pastries from the local bakery for the morning’s breakfast. Local meats and cheeses, sourced from local markets, along with fruit in season, are served with possibly the finest Italian sparkling wine, the award winning Ferrari Brut.
