Soar in a hot-air balloon over the Tuscan hills and then visit the Chianti cellars
With the wind in your hair, crisp morning air and an indescribable feeling of freedom: soar over the soft green Tuscan hills on board a hot-air balloon and admire the splendid landscapes of a region rich in history and charm. Come and discover Florence, the enchanting city of Renaissance art, and stay at Baglioni Relais Santa Croce, one of the most luxurious, elegant and sophisticated residences in Florence’s historic centre.
Take off in a hot-air balloon from Bargino, in the heart of Tuscany’s south, and while in flight, watch the sun rise over Chianti hills, an area of terrain that undulates with steep valleys, villages, houses and castles. Once landed, you will be taken on a discovery of the most renowned cellars for the production of one of the world’s most famous red wines, the Chianti. Conclude your experience with a visit of one of the Tuscan medieval villages of Castellina, Monteriggioni and San Gimignano: stroll along the streets in pursuit of local traditions and authentic flavours, admiring the churches and monuments that have remained unaltered throughout the ages.
