What to do in Bologna and its surroundings on the night of San Lorenzo

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!

Mountain lovers cannot miss the beautiful night walk on the border between Emilia and Tuscany: a magical evening with only the moon and stars for company.

Alternatively, there is also the hike under the night stars of San Lorenzo, which from Tossignano alle Banzole, returning to the Passo della Prè, will allow you to enjoy a suggestive walk in the Imola nature.

If you fancy a picnic out of town, City Red Bus offers a tour at the Cantina dei Visconti di Modrone in Tizzano, where you can admire the starry sky from the vineyards of the estate - and enjoy a taste of brazadela, a Bolognese focaccia.

Would you prefer something to drink? Calici di Stelle, the event that combines astronomy and gastronomy, could be just right for you. During the event, guests will be able to taste the wine of the Bolognese hills under the starry sky.
