The history behind this aerial amenity, which operates like an aircraft, is a remarkable one. In fact, its mission is to combine tourism with environmentalism. The balloon offers family outings in the air over Paris in the least polluting way possible. 75 such balloons are in place around the world today. Since 2008, a partnership with Airparif has been raising awareness about air quality issues.
The Ballon Generali flies daily, weather permitting. Expect to pay €12 for adults, €10 for adolescents ages 12 to 17 and €6 for children ages 3 to 11.
