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

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
