Today it has many elements that come from the past, baroque and renaissance periods, and paintings dated back to 17th and... More

I think it's one of the best spots in cremona! The cathedral is really well kept even in the inside, which you can visit, and the Torrazzo gives you the best view of cremona!

Simply wonderful!!! We arrived at the end of the mess and we were surprised to hear the awesome music of the pipe organ. This was the best experience of medieval music in my life. The cathedral is beautiful, both inside and outside.

This piazza has an incredible energy. I suggest to stay there while there are not so many people around. A true inspiration it is.

I want to visit every duomo, and I have seen a lot of them. This one was pretty standard, except that the original Roman underground construction is nice to visit, and that is where they store the dead guy in a glass box; which always amazes me.

The Torrazzo is the bell tower of the Cathedral of Cremona, Lombardy, in northern Italy. At 112.7 meters (343 ft. 6 in), it is the third tallest brickwork bell tower in the world, the first being the tower of St. Martin's Church in Landshut, Bavaria, and the second at the Church of Our Lady in Bruges, Belgium. However the Torrazzo... More

Wonderful Centro with an even better cathedral. Inspirational with many chapels, and an unusual transept design. The facade was Romanesque with many statues. The main square filled with gothic buildings. 5 star. Don't miss this if you are near Milan or Venice.

Cremona is famous for many things. In the field of music Stradivari and his violin are well known all over the world, in the field of gastronomy you must taste the famous "torrone" but Cremona is also rich in arts. The Cathedral and the near "Torrazzo" are fantastic pieces of art. And the inner part will leave you mouth open!... More

This year is dedicated to the 300 birthday of Stradivarius. There was a concert given by students studying at the Conservatory.
