A hot air balloon flight is an extraordinary way to treat yourself to an unforgettable experience in a really special Art City: Ferrara.
From above in a hot air balloon you can take photographs with totally original framings and observe Ferrara, with its centre made up of a labyrinth of streets where every corner has a story to tell, from a privileged position.
Only from above and at a leisurely pace, just driven by the force of the wind, you can observe the delights that Ferrara and its province offer, immersed in a peaceful atmosphere with an experience of a flight of times gone by.
“The great vessel of the sky hovers silently, transported by the wind.
The air around is still and tranquil, the gaze sweeps over an unbounded horizon.
The plain and the hills, thousands of metres below, reveal their most hidden and unexpected corners.
The geometries of the woods and cultivations, the twists of the rivers and paths intertwine with elegance, like gardens painted by a 19th century painter; the ancient hamlets reveal their secrets.
Life unfolds in a magical and dreamlike atmosphere, in the materialisation of a dream that has repeated itself so many times during childhood.
The basket is an ideal balcony in space, jutting out towards infinity, the highest peaks stand tall and white above the mists of the low heights.
Flying in a balloon, travelling along the routes of the invisible paths in the sky, you experience sensations that are unique and difficult to describe.
It is impossible to transmit the emotions experienced during this true and great adventure with words. You feel like you are hanging from the sky, without weight or time, in a world where birds thrust their wings into the clouds. Nothing has the ancient, discrete and arcane charm of an air balloon.
The experience of a flight, even just as a simple passenger, remains indelibly in the memory and profound soul of anyone who tries it".
