- Casa Paganini
piazza di Santa Maria in Passione 32
Directions to Casa Paganini from Piazza De Ferrari
Via Dante to
Piazza Dante and look for
Cristopher Columbus's House "Casa di Colombo".
(It is a fake, but never mind that!)
It is a small stone house on your right as you get to the corner of
Via Dante and Piazza Dante and it had a nice cloister behind.
Columbus's House is at the footstep of a gentle staircase that climbs
Porta Soprana, one of the real gates to the
old town. Walk under the gate, and turn left on
Via di Ravecca
Piazza di Sarzano.
Go across the Piazza to the other end and take
Via di Santa Croce to the little square
Piazza di Santa Croce. Walk across the square and take right
Archivolto San Silvestro which leads to
Salita San Silvestro which continues into
Via di Santa Maria di Castello.
After 100 meters, Piazza di Santa Maria in Passione is on your
(another fake, Paganini's real birthplace is buried under a modern
building some 500 meters to the East) is in the furthest corner.
