Rome: Hot-Air Balloon Flight over the Tiber Valley
- Duration: 3 hours
Travel just 37 miles (60 km) outside of Rome to the small town of Magliano Sabina located on the Via Tiberina. Meet your pilot to transfer to the nearby launch site for a pre-flight briefing. If you choose, you can assist with the balloon inflation. Once the balloon is inflated, the pilot will welcome you onboard the 'lighter than air' flight. As you ascend into the air, enjoy 360-degree panoramic views and get bird's eye photo opportunities of the spectacular scenery. The maximum height you will ascend to is 1,500 feet (500 meters) where the temperature is almost the same as on the ground. The ground crew will be tracking your flight as you go and will be waiting with the Jeep transfer to take you back to Magliano Sabina after your landing. When you land, after a 40-60-minute flight, toast your adventure with local DOC wines, salami, and cheese. Your pilot will sign your First Flight ...

Beautiful experience at dawn on a Sunday morning. As soon as the hot air balloon broke away from the ground, it seemed to live in an almost surreal reality, time stopped and everything became magic ... Wonderful landscapes and enchanted atmosphere. All the fears that had made me hesitant for days also dissolved. Great credit also goes to Ivan and Elisa, truly exquisite people. Straconsiglio.
