Visit to the astronomical observatory of Libbiano

Tuscany is famous for being a totally unspoiled territory so it is the perfect place to observe the sky at night. In its green hills the local association of astrophiles Astrofili Alta Valdera manages a small but well equipped astronomical observatory with a powerful and advanced telescope. It is possible to take part in one of the meetings that the association organizes and observe stars, planets, nebulas, comets, the moon, the sun etc.. They also organize extremely interesting conferences on astronomical themes. The perfect didactic occasion to learn about the stars during your holidays. The tour we organize includes a visit to the medieval town Peccioli, a dinner in a restaurant in town and the visit to the observatory.
