Are you a born stargazer? Or are you simply curious to see how your zodiac sign stretches across the sky? Whether you’re a passionate astronomy lover or a star novice who wants to grasp some basic facts about the constellations, Florence offers the chance to get a bit closer to the cosmos. On days when you need a break from all that painting and sculpture, try taking a visit to somewhere over the rainbow. A trip to the city’s Fondazione Scienza e Tecnica and the Arcetri Astrophysics Observatory may prove just the ticket to undiscovered skies. Although both institutions have separate backgrounds and functions, they cooperate closely and share the common goal of promoting science education in the Florentine area.
