Exit the station universita and you will see a statue of a horse right outside, in the middle of the Piazza Bovio. Look in the opposite direction the horse is looking and you will see that the street splits in two. Take the left street, Via Depretis (not the uphill road).
You'll see a huge castle at the end of the street. Walk towards it on the left sidewalk. Before arriving at the castle, you will see a newspaper kiosk and a small street on the left, this is Via Melisurgo, our street.

The bus will leave you on Via Acton in front of the port Molo Beverello. From here continue walking in the direction that the bus was travelling and cross over the road. After about 100 metres you'll see two petrol stations on the left, Agip and Esso, and our street, Via Melisurgo, is in the middle of these two. We're at number 15 on the right-hand side.
