Another great Cathedral

It is hard to compare the Cathedrals in northern Italy as they are all so fabulous but my favorite is the ancient round Church in Brescia.

The cathedral of Cremona is a must see in this small provincial city that forgot to celebrate his most illustrious citizen (Monteverdi). Exterior is a fantastic example of romanceque style (my recommendation first go around it) the interior is quite dark and a mix of more modern styles in the chapels and painting frescoes, etc the recent restaurateur (still to...

Sitting whilst the sun goes down gazing at the duomo was such a wonderful way to spend ann evening. I loved the climb, don't be put off by the number of steps, most of them are wide and not too steep. You can also stop a couple of times on the way up and the view is worth it, it's... More

This is a huge cathedral in a lovely square in a lovely unspoiled mid size town. The Duomo is a massive but elegant structure built mostly with red bricks but with an adorne marble facade. It is very different from other Duomi and it is worth a visit. The entrance is free and there will be very few people inside.... More

My husband said Wow! the minute we walked in the door. It is a beautiful site in Cremona center. On Sunday afternoon when we visited it was open to the public for free and very quiet and mostly empty. Sit on the Piazza, enjoy a prosecco, and enjoy the architecture from the outside. Then enter the Cathedral and see the... More

On a car transfer from Germany to Spain we made a stopover in Cremona. We would never have expected a historic center so pittoresque. The dome with its various facades is simply amazing. Next time we'll come back with more time to discover!

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
