Balloon flights over San Gimignano
The Medieval skyline of San Gimignano is a breathtaking sight from the ground and even more so when viewed from a balloon basket on one of our balloon flights. Our balloon rides from San Gimignano take off less than a kilometre from the centre of the town and ensure a wonderful view of the towers and buildings that create one of the most evocative views of the fortified Tuscan hill towns.
After the balloon take off the majesty of the medieval towers and its unique architecture will soon appear with all its beauty. Some call it the “Manhattan of the Chianti region”. But you will not only see the town of San Gimignano, all the typical Tuscan countryside will be there to be admired: the vineyards that produce excellent Vernaccia di San Gimignano alternating with olive trees and in the distance the Apennine Mountains with their tops covered by the white Carrara marble from where Michelangelo took the material for his works.
