What to do in Bologna on San Lorenzo night

Updated on 01 August 2023 From Bologna Welcome

Ready to make a wish? With its famous hills and numerous urban parks, Bologna is the ideal place where to spend the Night of San Lorenzo in search of shooting stars. Here are some tips on where to go for one of the most magical nights of the year!

Battiferro finché caldo offers in the center of Bologna an evening full of emotion: food, entertainment and lights off chasing shooting stars. May it be the time to see one?

Mountain lovers cannot miss the event of Crinali - Music in Vergato: here guitar, voice and drums will accompany you in an evening concert worthy of being remembered.

And on the hills, why not enjoy a film under the stars at Fienile Fluò? The Scena Natura festival will screen the film "Lunana: A Yak in the Classroom", an opportunity to learn about the stories of other places on the big screen. Once in the hills, all you have to do is stop for a bite to eat and wait for the stars to appear.

If you are interested in astronomy, the Felsina Observatory will be open to the public on Friday 11 August from 9.30 pm for the evening The Perseids, a moment where adults and children can experience the wonders of the sky.

Finally, if you can't get away from Bologna, don't despair! The many urban parks are the perfect place where to stargaze while staying in the city. From the park of Villa Spada in the Saragozza area to the beautiful Villa Ghigi, you will be spoiled for choice.

All you'll need is a blanket ... and a wish at hand!
