Come si dice "turn left/right at Dante St.", and other useful directions?

I have a quiz coming up on basic asking and giving directions. I think I might have missed some vocabulary words that weren't in the book. If someone could give me the common translations in Italian for some of the following, I'd be very appreciative.
(I'll just use Dante st because it's a short name)
"Turn left at Dante St."
"Turn right onto Dante St."
"Go up to the corner of Dante St. and Bob St."
"(Go across) Cross the Verde Plaza"
"The museo is on the left"
Translate this and then ask me how to get somewhere in California, and I'll try to respond in Italian.
Thanks for all the help

    These sentences sound natural and are commonly used:

    "Turn left at Dante St." = "Gira a sinistra a via Dante" / "Svolta a sinistra a via Dante".
    "Turn right onto Dante St." = "Gira a destra in via Dante" / "Svolta a destra in via Dante".
    "Go up to the corner of Dante St. and Bob St." = "Vai avanti all'incrocio tra via Dante e via Bob".
    "(Go across) Cross the Verde Plaza" = "Attraversa piazza Verde".
    "The museo is on the left" = "Il museo è a sinistra".

    Otherwise if you want a more formal way you can use the thid singular person (lei).

    "Turn left at Dante St." = "Giri a sinistra a via Dante"
    "Turn right onto Dante St." = "Giri a destra in via Dante"
    "Go up to the corner of Dante St. and Bob St." = "Vada avanti all'incrocio tra via Dante e via Bob"
    "(Go across) Cross the Verde Plaza" = "Attraversi piazza Verde"
    "The museo is on the left" = "Il museo si trova a sinistra".

    Now i ask you something but it may be hard to answer :)
