Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

On Day 3, you will be picked up from your hotel early in the morning and transferred to the place where your hot air balloon trip will take place. You will be able to admire old Tuscan castles and renaissance villas, enjoy aerial views of the old towns of Poggibonsi, San Gimignano, Col Val D’Elsa, and be amazed by the Chianti hills, vineyards, and woods. On a clear day, if flying high enough is possible, you will see the sea reflecting the morning sun in the distance.
