Florence and the Hotel Brunelleschi are not to be missed for the night of the shooting stars on 10 August.  The Notte di San Lorenzo has always been the most magical ans eagerly awaited end-of-day of the entire summer. People in their thousands gather in the most isolated parts of the city with their noses in the air to watch the spectacle of the Perseid meteor shower. Being a romantic city par excellence Florence is the ideal place to be, and with its many interesting vantage points one can easily contemplate this splendid spectacle

Far from the madding crowd

Piana dei Giullari, near Piazza Michelangelo, is on one of the hills overlooking Florence. This charming little village has remained unchanged over time, is easily accessible from the city, and the ideal place from which to admire the shooting stars. Bellosguardo is a promontory south-west of Florence. It is quite unknown to mass tourism and extremely evocative, making it another one of the best places to contemplate the illuminated sky.

Viewing the stars from a mountain top

Monte Morello is a mountain northwest of the city at 934 metres asl. Spending the night of San Lorenzo in this unusual spot is a truly magical experience, as you will feel as if you can reach out and touch the starry sky. Trespiano is a small and quiet village located in a hilly area on the border with Fiesole. In addition to being an excellent viewpoint from which to admire the stars, it has interesting historical monuments such as the Church of Santa Lucia in Trespiano and the Bracco Chapel.

Stay in the luxury of the Hotel Brunelleschi

To remain enveloped by the magical atmosphere of the stars and within easy reach of the city’s many panoramic viewpoints, stay at the Brunelleschi Hotel, an elegant and luxurious historic residence located in the heart of the city. And, talking about stars, the property’s Santa Elisabetta restaurant has two Michelin stars, while the more informal Osteria Pagliazza is on the ground floor of the hotel and during the summer it also has outdoor tables on the charming square   www.hotelbrunelleschi.it
