Two things that must be seen in Cremona: the cathedral and the Museo del Violino! Worthy of a visit!
Cremona is an absolutely beautiful city. Every road, every corner, every building is a work of art. And then you arrive in Piazza del Comune and admire one magnificent piazza and the ornament of the piazza is the Cattedrale di Cremona e Torrazzo. Stans still and admire the architecture and the beauty, enjoy the beautiful silence of the harmony and... More
We stayed next door at the Locanda Torriani with a room that had a view of the tower. I had to climb it after seeing it for two days. It's euros and 502 steps to the top. There is a prayer bench near the top if you need to pray for stronger legs or lungs. Make sure you watch the... More
Attended mass here and was taken in by the old style done by priests. Everything is beautiful and will awe you from the statues to frescoes to windows both inside and out. The towers and clock on face of it are magnificent. The walk up is a good one that rewards you with a spectacular view at the end of... More
Long walk up to the top. Be prepared for a sweat and many steps. Incredible view of the ciuntryside and town. Despite hating the walk up, the view was worth it. Go slow and then enjoy the view. If you are out-of-shape, you won't be able to make it to the top....

The interior is peaceful and dark - perhaps a bit too dark, making it difficult to see the frescoes. The adjacent tower, supposedly dating from the... More
I was born in Cremona, therefore I cannot be objective! However, the Cathedral, the "Torrazzo" and the whole "Piazza del Duomo" (with the "Palazzo Comunale") are not to be missed: the four buildings create a small world in itself, describing in stone and brick the history of Medieval "comuni" in Italy. The Duomo facade is a lace, always telling new... More
We visited Cremona because we wanted to climb the Tower which is supposed to be the tallest medieval tower in Italy. We were not disappointed at all. The climb is not hard, except for the very last section. The views from the top are beautiful, as with all other similar towers in Italy but there are hardly any tourists and... More
