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.

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
