The night sky in Punta Ala

Updated: Jan 28, 2021

Southern Tuscany is one of the best places in Europe in terms of light pollution and Punta Ala is rather a good place to spend the summer nights staring at the sky and shooting stars, unlike the rest of Italy, where light pollution is rather high.

40 minutes north of Punta Ala, the Astronomical Observatory of Piombino is available to look at the night sky from a privileged position.

The view of the night sky in Punta Ala gives the opportunity to see a show of nature that is often forgotten for those who live in a big city and few things are better than spending a summer night admiring the night's sky with a glass of a good old tuscan wine in the hand.
