Since Cremona is relatively small, the Duomo is free and completely open to the public, including the magnificent Choir! Climbing the Torrazzo is less difficult than expected, but the final spiral staircase is a bit scary, though the view is worth it.

Cremona is an ancient outpost of the Roman Empire and the Terrazzo or tower is the highest brick observation tower in Europe. The climb up is approximately 550 steps but the view from the top is extraordinary and demonstrates its value to the Romans. The Cattedrale or Duomo is stunning from the outside but it is the interior that is... More

This is my hometown and I cannot say anything bad about it. If you are interested in art, history and beauty you should visit the cathedral and the baptistery. The Torrazzo will allow you a 360 degrees on the city. The river po and the countryside around Cremona. Who complains about having to do 502 steps to get to the... More

This building is steeped in tradition and history. From the crazy zodiac clock on the tower, to the remnants of WWII that are still evident. Inside awaits an ethereal experience of religion. They have candles available to light for your own prayer...it is a beautiful church inside....many frescos from the 1600's. I loved to hear the bells ringing each day... More

Every small area of the Cattedrale is well worth and needs a few minutes to realize how beautiful it's. It went beyond our expectatives!

Beautiful cathedral! Nice to go to Mass while there. Also climb the clock tower for fantastic views and video about the history of the tower.

1. The Duomo is a stupendous sample of Romanesque architecture with elements of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Its pinkish-white marble façade is perfectly balanced, although deceptively symmetrical. In fact, there are scores of little asymmetries that contribute to its attractiveness. The central narthex (lobby) consists of a portico with pink Verona marble columns and symbolic lions half-lying around the pedestals.... More

A must see if you visit Cremona.It is a Romanesque church with both Gothic and Baroque elements added later.My biggest criticism is that the works of art are not well labeled.
