Visits for schools

Visits for schools

The Col Drusciè Astronomical Observatory has a modern reflecting telescope with a diameter of 40cm, fully automated, which allows the public to directly observe celestial objects from a privileged position due to the clarity of the sky.

During the visit some of the most interesting celestial objects visible in the sky (Moon, stars, planets, nebulae, etc.) will be shown at the telescope. The visit is carried out only in case of clear skies.

From the Col Drusciè Observatory there is also a suggestive view "from above" on Cortina d'Ampezzo and its mountains.

The Col Drusciè Astronomical Observatory can only be reached by foot, in a 20-minutes walk from Piè Tofana - reachable by car ( The location and time of the meeting point will be established with our employee. A torch to illuminate the road and shoes suitable for walking on mountain trails are required. In winter the road from Piè Tofana to the Observatory is covered with snow.
