I know nothing without certainty. But the sight of stars makes me dream.
(Vincent Van Gogh)
Places far from the world, where artificial lights are few and it is easier to dream: we offer you 10 magical locations where you can live a sustainable holiday, admiring the stars like never before.
I’ve always loved looking at the stars. I could tell you about summer evenings spent on beaches and blankets waiting to see a shooting star, but you probably know what I’m talking about. Of course, we are no longer used to it. In everyday life we never look up at the sky, and even if we did we would not be able to see but few stars. But there are some places, not too far from us, where you can admire a large number of stars, with a sky that almost overwhelms us, and that surely leaves us speechless. Here are 10 locations under the stars for your next holidays in Italy.
