Our world

The world within reach of everyone.
If you want to see the world as flying balloons
at 360°Air Pano can choose a destination.

You see the world with all its natural contrasts,
 deserts or glaciers, waterfalls and volcanoes,
  great mountains and ocean depths.

But you can also visit different cultures,

 from the most modern city or from an ancient village,
  go to great monuments or to simple places.

It is a privilege to have tools to go Around the World.
This is possible thanks to many people
  who knows teamwork and sharing.
Somebody lives moments that share with everybody
  and tecnology makes possibility. It seems magical.

What is the best age to learn reading ?


Each activity proposed as a game or
  an adventure can be good.
Motivation is always priority to education.
Learning comes only when
  the situation is suitable
  and the child is ready.
It is never too early to start,
  and it is never too late to recover.
Any situation can be a nice preparation.
