4 stars for the falling stars night

Night of San Lorenzo, this year the show will be extraordinary, the astronomers promise, with ... scrambles up to Ferragosto.
With the new moon and the clear sky this week the Perseiadi, ie the meteors associated with the night of August 10th, the Lacrime di San Lorenzo, are super-active and clearly visible.
To guarantee the best performance, they recommend waiting for the central hours of the night, when the constellation of Perseus is high in the sky and, in theory, one could even see a hundred meteors per hour.

Where to go, however, to guarantee the show?
