The best places to observe shooting stars

By the sea

By the sea
By the sea, the setting is certainly more romantic and there are relatively dark places between Naples and the darkest province where we can observe the sky. Let's position ourselves where light pollution is low, so better get away from the city a little. We recommend going to the seaside in the shores of Varcaturo or to the beaches and the Lungomare di Pozzuoli because generally the strongest lights are behind us.

The Virgilian Park can also be a good choice and we can lie down on a towel, munching on something to eat while observing the sky.

Unmissable is the Belvedere of San Martino al Vomero, at the foot of Castel Sant'Elmo where we can position ourselves on a bench or stay leaning against the wall to observe the sky in search of a shooting star. Always ready to make a wish.
