Practical info
Delve into the life of Christopher Columbus, the legendary explorer, with a guided tour of his childhood home, Casa di Colombo. Tucked away just outside the ancient medieval walls, near Porta Soprana, this historic abode is where Columbus spent his formative years. As recorded in archival documents, Domenico Colombo, Christopher's father, moved his family to this residence in 1455, when the future navigator was just four years old. As you wander through the house, you'll notice that the ground floor was once a bustling workshop, separated from the private quarters above by a charming attic with wooden beams.
