Late Arrival

As with any commercial flight, if you miss your flight no refund will be due and if you think you are going to be late there is unfortunately no way to contact the pilot in the morning. The mobile phone signal is not good at the launch site in the Montisi valley and after the balloon is inflated, about 20-30 minutes after the meeting time, it will not be possible to delay the launch. If you miss your flight we would try to fit you in to a flight one of the following mornings, subject to available spaces.

Accommodation & Additional Activities

If you are travelling a long distance we would recommend arranging to stay in the Montisi area to make things easier. We would recommend La Romita hotel and restaurant in the centre of Montisi and you can also find other places to stay and things to do at the Montisi website . Please mention Ballooning in Tuscany when you book.

Private Tours

You can also combine your balloon ride in Tuscany with a private tour organised by Antonella Piredda a licensed local guide for Siena and its province. Antonella offers a range of guided tours designed to perfectly follow your morning balloon flight including visits to nearby towns such as Pienza, Montalcino or Montepulciano or other fascinating places of interest such as the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, the Abbey of Sant’Antimo or Sant’Anna in Camprena where the movie The English Patient was filmed. Wine tasting, cheese tasting or olive oil tasting can also be included. Tours last 3 or 5 hours and include Antonella as your guide (English, Italian & Spanish speaking) and transportation.
