The medieval skyline of San Gimignano is a breathtaking sight from the ground and even more so when viewed from a basket of a hot air balloon. Our balloon rides from San Gimignano take off less than a kilometer from the city center , this guarantees a splendid view of the towers and palaces that create one of the most evocative views of the Tuscan hills .
Once taken off, we can immediately admire the majesty of the towers and the unmistakable architecture of the village , which someone called “The Manhattan of Chianti”. But the view also opens on the whole Tuscan countryside , on the vineyards that produce the excellent Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the olive trees, up to the distant Apennines with their white peaks of Carrara marble, where Michelangelo took the material for the his works.
