Taking off from the hotel’s private park and hovering around the city’s main attractions, it’s a unique experience for every tourist!
Already known for its outstanding looks and luxurious character, the most iconic hotel in Florence, Four Seasons Hotel Firenze has taken hospitality to new hights…quite literally! Committed to creating an all-inclusive sensational experience for its guests, the hotel now includes private hot air balloon rides above the city center- one of the rarest hotel-related activities one can have.
Popularised in the 18th century, the hot air balloon is a travel experience like no other. This tiny vacation within the vacation is part of the Florence Rhapsody project, which brings together different types of thrilling experiences for the hotel’s guests.
Taking off from the idyllic Gherardesca Park, the city’s largest private park with statues, fountains and an ionic temple dating back to the 15th century, the colourful hot air balloon floats over the Duomo, the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Pitti, Piazza della Signoria and Ponte Vecchio.
Floating southwards, over Tuscany’s famous Chianti region, guests are amazed by impressive views of vineyards, olive groves, picturesque hills and small villages perched on the hillsides.
And if not hovering above the beautiful and historicRead city of Florence while sipping a glass of champagne doesn’t sound enough, there’s actually more. Upon landing, an exclusive, customized and tasty picnic created by Michelin-starred Chef Vito Mollica is prepared for them in a corner of the garden.
Local artisanal cheeses, salads, sandwiches, cakes, and of course a Prosecco make for the perfect way to end this one-hour amazing experience.
