Simply embarassing: the same technology and seats of 30 years ago. Paying for VR is more value than buy a ticket at the Planetario. A shame. The calendar and events is truly interesting and events are lead by serious professionals. It is a matter of...More

The planetariim is in Guardini Publicci, close to porta Venezia. Easily accesible sadly we were passing through the area around 9am so we did not even try to get in. There is a statue of the astronomer Roger Boschovich worth visiting.

This place is quite easy to find since it's adjacent to Porta Venezia, at the end of Giardini pubblici. From outside it looks like a quite interesting place, but because it was to crowded with children (probably some school trips) we decided to skip it....More

It was ok, it is all in Italian with no translation, (which wouldn't normally be a problem as usually the visuals speak for themselves) however, it is more of a lecture and if you have no astronomical knowledge then it would be difficult to keep...More

For a few hours a day from 4:30, this quaint little planetarium opens its doors to locals, italian speakers or just avid stargazers who will not let a small issue such as not understanding italian get in the way. For €5 per person, an astrophysicist...More

Great representation in italian language, you shoud ask for an english show. The show was very detaliated but anyone can understand it. No reservations required. No gift shop. Closed to the metro station and touristic hip hop busses. The astronomic observatory is in a different...More

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
