How to get there

The Via D'Azeglio complex is about a 20-minute walk from the railway station:

  • you can walk along the Lungoparma to the Ponte di Mezzo bridge and then turn right to the end of Via D'Azeglio;
  • the Verdi bridge leads to the Parco Ducale, from where you can reach the entrance of Via Kennedy or Piazzale Santa Croce.

Given its location along one of the main arteries of the historical centre and in close proximity to the Santa Croce barrier, the Via D'Azeglio complex is well connected by numerous bus lines (type 'Santa Croce' at the link).
