If you wish to spend a different evening, and avoid crowded happy hours or the usual disco pubs, I definitely recommend this place. Located in a beautiful park ( Giardini Indro mondanelli) close by the posh Porta venezia dsitrict) the Planetarium is an amazing place out of time, out of all the frenzy the rush and the noise of the...

If you want to know more about the stars you cannot miss the opportunity to visit a real planetarium. It is really old (and this is part of his beauty). There are lot of conferences for both kids and adults. Both my daughters (5 and 7) loves it and wanted to visit again and again...

There is no translation!" That was fine with me, and I said so. I had not been expecting the show to be in... More

I wasn't willing to pay to get into the planetarium section of this building because I was trying to do Milan on the cheap - I'll admit upfront.
