What a view from the summit
May 2019
Atop a hill of 150m elevation the observatory benefits from the splendid vantage point with panoramic views over the city and bay. Today, our mission was to give the churches and galleria’s a break and indulge in this fine collection of clocks, telescopes and old scientific instruments

There is a hidden little gem of a museum at the top of Capodimonte at the Astronomical Observatory that displays a variety of ancient telescopes and astronomical tools, two beautiful examples of astronomical mechanisms (one is a clock-like mechanism that displayed the current configuration of stars and planets), and a second edition of Copernicus's Dē revolutionibus orbium coelestium!

The story behind the museum's creation is pretty cool a well.....ask about it when you arrive.
