Astrotourism is the International Astrotourism Network and portal where you can find certified places for stargazing and book travel experiences under the starry sky.

Is the internationalization of the Astronomitaly Startup project that has been very successful in Italy:

1. Astronomitaly created "The Most Beautiful Skies" Certification, internationally recognized also for "GOLDEN SKIES". Through this recognition, we classify and promote the destinations of excellence for Astrotourism.
2. For each certified destination, we build (in partnership with local operators) the entire astro-tourist offer.
3. The tourist offer is then promoted and marketed online through the international portal Astrotourism.com

Is it a niche tourism?
Our long experience on the market allow us to confirm: NO! As conceived by Astronomitaly, Astroturism is a kind of experience for all those people who seek new and original experiences in contact with nature. So not just for enthusiasts.

Who has never tried to see the falling stars or dreamed about the wonders of the space?

Why is the need for recognition that certifies the destination and to invest in Astro-tourism?

From a user's point of view, a certified destination offers indispensable guarantees for the astroturist:
- Ensure the quality of the observation site and the absence of light sources
- The presence of receptive or food services
- The enjoyment of astrotourism activities and experiences that require specific Guides and Equipment

From the destination side it allows to:
- Monetize by exploiting a territorial resource at zero cost and that is being increasingly rare: the starry sky
- Offer an original, responsible and sustainable tourist product
- Differentiate your offer from competitors
- Delocalizing and seasonalizing tourism flows by enhancing rural areas
- Promote destination as an international excellence

Certification is just an acknowledgment / trademark / "badge"?
No, it includes a lot of marketing services needed to launch, promote and develop the destination in the tourism market like:

- Astrophotographic Service + Video Trailer of the certified location
- Communication and Marketing Campaign
- Construction of the Tourist Offer
- A listing page and bookable tourism products on Astrotourism.com portal

What do you mean by "Tourist Offer"?
Events and package tours include the stargazing experience with professional telescopes / instruments and a qualified guide, with solutions even in case of bad weather.
