La Night of San Lorenzo is one of the most anticipated of the year, also a Napoli, because it gives the possibility to raise your eyes to the sky and observe the beautiful shooting stars of the swarm of the Perseids. The appointment is on 10 August, although the peak will be between 12 and 13 August.

The observation is even more suggestive if you are in a dark place or if you participate in some event organized for the occasion. Being admired in front of this unique spectacle is truly incredible! Also, on these nights they look very good too Jupiter and Saturn, which arise from the east. To recognize them we can use one of the many apps that help us move in the sky, such as Sky Map.

In Naples, in addition, during the day of 10 August 2022, you can participate in some evening openings of Capodimonte and Pompeii.

Here are all our tips on how to experience the Night of San Lorenzo!


The best places to observe shooting stars

By the sea

By the sea

The best places from which to observe the Perseid swarm are always the darkest ones and this generally applies to any observation of the sky. We recommend looking for places where light pollution is very low, thus moving away from the city a little.

Go to the seashore in the shores of Varcaturo or on the beaches and the Lungomare di Pozzuoli it's a good idea because generally the main lights are behind us.
