    I attended with my kids (5 and 9 years) to an experience at the Planetarium, but it was very disappointing, partly because, after making 15 km road climbed the mountains, expectations were high. The person who conducted is very prepared and clear in the show, but I think it's wrong to propose "A walk in the sky", surely arouses more interest in adolescent fans of the topic.

    We attended the evening tour of the Observatory: an external party with naked-eye vision and detailed explanation of various topics, from light pollution, the milky way, and constellations. The tour continues on the terrace where there are 7 telescopes from which we looked at Saturn, the Andromeda Galaxy and several other stars. Visit interesting and explanation by a highly competent and enthusiastic Guide. Also because of a beautiful evening with a sky completely clear of clouds and with some shooting star. Definitely recommended!

    From Aosta are 35 minutes ... signs made easy via the road that goes up the mountain. We did the night of the shooting stars. First phase with the Planetarium (like being on a spaceship), then explanation under the stars with the descriptions of the major stars and constellations. Finally the telescope (saw Saturn and two stars). I would have preferred more planets, but maybe there was no proper alignment. Given the milky way, to take your breath away! Recommended!!!

  • The Observatory, in addition to the normal activity of research, organises educational activities. For the observation of the sky you are guided by researchers of the Center. In groups of two persons powerful professional tools can be used under the guidance of astronomical researchers. Will explain what to watch and also guide you in the observation with the naked eye. Within a very short walk there is a car park and a restaurant.
