We cover most of Tuscany but we normally take off from Montisi which is 45 min drive South of Siena. This location is fairly close to Pienza, Montepulchiano and Montalchino.

I get motion sick on slow boat rides, or being on a boat not moving. But I can take a boat taxi that is moving in one direction with fair speed, and I can feel the wind in my face. Can you address my fear of motion-sickness on a hot air balloon ride?
