SIENA. A modest settlement of Etruscan origin entered history under the name of Colonia Julia Saena in 29 BC. Siena is the embodiment of a an outstanding medieval city that has preserved its character and quality to a remarkable degree. Its influence on art, architecture and town planning in the Middle Ages, both in Italy and elsewhere in Europe, was great. Its inhabitants pursued their rivalry with Florence right into the area of urban planning. Throughout the centuries, they preserved their city’s Gothic appearance, acquired between the 12th and 15th centuries. The whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was devised as a work of art that blends into the surrounding landscape. The historic centre of Siena has been declared by UNESCO a World Heritage Site. It is one of the nation’s most visited tourist attractions. Hotels in Siena.

Siena is famous for its cuisine, art, museums, medieval cityscape and the Palio, the horse race. The Palio di Siena is a traditional (and controversial) medieval horse race run around the Piazza del Campo twice each year, on 2 July and 16 August. The event is attended by large crowds, and is widely televised.

Sometimes we go for a ballooning tour a few miles further South of Siena and takeoff in Buonconvento (bonus conventus, “happy place”, mentioned for the first time in 1100), and Montalcino home of the renowned Brunello di Montalcino wine.

Florence balloon rides

Fly over Florence!

Only when the wind and weather conditions are right one can fly with the balloon right over the city of Florence, during the hot summer months Florence balloon rides are not always possible.  It took us quite a bit of homework to make this balloon flight happen, were certainly rewarded by the stunning views! Somtimes when the winds are right we takeoff from the Southern part of the city and fly out into the florentine hills.

Winter flights

Winter flights, Ballooning in winter is a wonderful experienc., the first bonus is that we don’t have to start so early in the morning, because the air is cold and stable, there is no thermal activity.

Yes, it is cold on the ground, but the burners of the hot-air balloon are good heaters!  In winter the colours and visibility in Tuscany are often exceptional, with clear views to the Apenine ranges covered in snow.. What I love most is looking right into the forest, observe life in the woods through the bare trees and see the wild boar running for cover..

Flying all year round through every season is a bit like looking down onto a calendar.  See when the farmers plant the vegetable garden, when it is time to start pruning the olive trees, time for plowing, the grapes are ripe and, oh yes,  the smell of Spring..
