Let’s explore Veneto (border region in the northern part of Italy) as you are flying on a cloud! Group flights are available on selected dates every 2 months. Sunrise flights (early in the morning) are best to enjoy the very first light of the day. Up to 24 participants per date (please book at least 2 weeks in advance for availability).

Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted, registered and briefed by the pilot. If you wish, you can help with the inflation of the balloon before climbing into your basket and being taken to the skies. Sunrise hot air balloon flights duration is approximately (depending on wind direction and strength) 45 to 65 minutes long. You will ascend anywhere from tree tops to several thousand feet.

We suggest a post-experience visit of Cittadella, a characteristic fortified medieval town, and a guided walk on its walls. For information contact IAT – Info Office.

Well organized event. The instructions before the event was super clear. Got to see the sunrise which was amazing.


It was one of the most beautiful experiences. The staff and the pilot were great. They explained everything in detail before heading off to the location of take off. You couldn’t even tell that we’ve lifted off and we were just going up. What an exhilarating adventure.


My first time on a hot air balloon was better than I could have imagined!


Had such an amazing time! Everyone that worked there was incredibly nice and informative. They made you feel very safe the entire way. The pilot was hilarious and made for a great trip!


Wonderful experience. Paolo was awesome and the ride on what started as a somewhat foggy morning was spectacular. Highly recommend!


The pilot was very experienced and created a safe and fun trip for all of us! The team was very professional and we enjoyed this very much.
Highly recommended for both first-timers and repeat customers!
