Florence Hot Air Balloon Festival

Get to experience the city of Florence through a perspective unlike any other. A relatively new addition to Florence, the Festival delle Mongolfiere is sure to brighten your stay.

The festival began only two years ago and is held just a short distance from the city centre. Accessible by foot, train, bus, or taxi, make your way over to the Ippodromo del Visarno on October 13th-14th or the following weekend of the 20th-21st to witness the giants of the air light up the Florence sky.

There are many activities for both children and adults that are sure to captivate. For an unparalleled view of the city, take a ride in a free-flying or tethered balloon. For those that prefer the comfort of the ground, have your breath taken away by a musical performance of colourful balloons illuminating the night sky. If you want an even closer look, let reality fade as you explore the inside of two grounded balloons and hear the fantastic stories as told by the staff. Finally, for those travelling with children, the festival offers various free workshops and activities that allow creativity to run free.
