Definitely, about 2-3 on the Bortle scale. It helps a lot if you don't have narrow band filters
Thank you rflinn68 !

The scope was the triplet 480mm, probabily not the best focal length for this target.
Anyway, I concluded that it is not feasible: after 60s there was no trace of the nebula.
I'll plan to go in the country around the city because I really love this target.
