Visit Virgo

For safety and scientific reasons, the access to the Virgo site is limited. However EGO regularly welcomes visitors so that they can learn more about Virgo.

Guided tours of Virgo are free for all visitors, and priority is given to schools and academic institutions. However associations, groups of people, or whoever is interested in discovering the interferometer are warmly invited to come too.

Site visits must be booked at least four weeks in advance, considering the following:
– as a general rule, visits are restricted to Tuesday or Saturday mornings;
– individual requests are collected until a minimum number of 15 visitors is reached;
– group visits shall be limited to maximum 60 visitors since no more than 30 persons at a time may visit the internal parts of the interferometer buildings.

To have more information on tours at Virgo or request the booking form, call at 0039 050 752 511 or send an email to info_(at)
To reach the site of EGO, follow the indications available here.

Note that no site visit is organised during summer and that due to the high demand, it may take some time before having the opportunity to come and discover Virgo. We are making our best to satisfy each request received.

Booking for the year 2017 will start again in September 2017, after summer break.
