Borghese Garden Hot Air Balloon Ride

I have browsed Trip Advisor and many other web sites including the Borghese Garden web site and cannot find out if this ride is still operating. Can anyone verify? I have even emailed the Borghese info and they have not replied .....

Any reply would be great, I am going in Sept and am thinking the photos from the short ride would be amazing, one website even suggested you can sip an apertif while gazing over Rome's wonderful scenery.

I've certainly not seen that for years.

If Rome and balloon won't work, try a doing a search for mongolfiera roma !

No idea if these are any good as leads, but did you find these sites?

This one looks very old...

www.romeguide.it/mongolfiera/mongolfiera.htm

And this is from the same sort of era..

…portalidiroma.it/turismo/villaborghese.htm

YouTube Italy has a video from about 2005, but nothing later...

And someone here is saying that it's been gone for a while now..

So don't hold your breath!

I haven't seen the balloon for years either - perhaps this is why

Instead you may like the view from the Janiculum - at least it's free!
