On DAY3, experience the magic of flying high above the cypress-studded hills and vineyards of Tuscany on a 1-hour VIP hot air balloon flight over the Chianti Region. The adventure begins at dawn, as soon as you arrive at the take-off field, but depends on weather conditions Watch as the balloons are inflated and prepared before your eyes. Once the pilots have completed their final checks and given you a briefing about flight safety, climb into the balloon basket and begin your float to altitudes of up to 2,000 feet (6,000 meters). Glide over valleys and ancient castles, enjoy breathtaking panoramas of the rolling hills of the renowned Chianti wine region with its famous vineyards and silver grey olive groves. As the balloons are directed by the breeze, each flight is unique. Admiring the timeless beauty of Italy from a privileged perspective is the experience of a lifetime. Upon landing, enjoy a glass of sparkling champagne – it’s a tradition of ballooning – and a locally sourced breakfast to celebrate your adventure. A cross-country drive back to the launch field in the chase vehicle will conclude your early morning excursion. After a traditional Florentine lunch overlooking the hills of Chianti, you will discover one of the most famous wineries in the world, Antinori. Experience the architecture, the flavors, and the emotions that will reveal both the full majesty of the winery and the intensity of its most representative wines. The winery is a milestone in the history of the Marchesi Antinori company: built entirely with locally sourced materials, respectful of the surrounding environment and taking great care to preserve the Tuscan landscape. It has become a place to discover the pleasures of living and breathing winemaking and to understand its life cycle: pressing, fermentation and aging – all without interfering with the wine’s quality.
