Perfect little town scare, with larger than life cathedral and tower. Just unbelievably beautiful. Very lively day and night time!

No exception in the Cathedral. Be sure to see it lit up at night. Take in the Baptist which is more amazing inside.

There are 502 steps up the tower. Until you get to the top there is a grating on the windows that prevents good photography without contortions! At the top one gets a huge panorama of the countryside, but loses the detail of the architecture. Still, for tower aficionados like me, there was a sense of accomplishment and enough rewarding views... More

Great frescos, lovely atmosphere. Needs a guide to make the best of it. The two frescos near the main door are amazing

502 steps go past in a flash, especially when you stop to watch the video of the bell tower - really worth seeing, and luckily sub-titled. And once you've circled your way to the top, you're rewarded with some pretty fabulous views over the patchwork rooves of the town to the Po river... Once you make your way down, you... More

Fantastic view of the Pianuara Padana from Torrazzo!!! A city that I love! Awesome cathedral, specially if you are an architect you must pass by!

If you'd like to hang in Cremona you definitely must see Torrazzo. It could sound demanding becasuse of the several steps to be taken before reaching the top, but it is a must in the city thanks to the stunning view from the top. Next to Torrazzo makes sense visiting the Cathedral because of the Amazing affreschi inside.

A nice very high building that lets you have a great view on the city (once you get on top of its 502 steps). Situated in the central square of the city (big and nice to enjoy a coffe in) and next to the cathedral, the torrazzo, along with the violins museum, is the main reason to visit Cremona. Just...

Though very beautiful from outside, the interior literally took our breaths away. A dazzling blend of Romanesque and Gothic architecture, this was surely the highlight of our visit.

Yes, this is my favorite square all over the world: huge, clean and very good preserved. Here you can admire the cathedral, the famous Torrazzo, the baptistery and the town Hall. Area is full pedestrian, so you can leave your kids run up and down. Good choice of bars to have an aperitif with an excellent view.
