Hi Luciano

http://www.mappery.com/maps/Riga-Tourist-Map-2.jpg

Albert Street in the north of this map is where the art nouveau buildings and spiral staircase are located. Worth the walk or 1.5 km taxi fare. It's about 4 hours by bus from Tallinn to Riga. If possible go to the Lux bus express office in Tallinn the day before and get a ticket. They sell out fast and I had to wait 2 hours for the next available bus. About 16 euro each way. Well worth it. The art nouveau section is in the north of Riga about 1.5 km walk from the train station or bus stn, adjacent in the south of Riga. The spiral staircase and museum are on the corner of Streinnieku iela and Alberta iela. The latter street is chock full of impressive buildings and a few more at the south end in E Melngaiua iela also. Look for the Albert Hotel on the map and a bit left of there.

Ciao!
