Compared to the tower in Bologne, this one is roomy and an easy climb. Well worth the climb of 400-500 steps to see views of the city and surrounding region. The clock is fabulous.The old clock that tells time, the phase of the moon, the astrological month and more. Amazing clock. Beautiful church too with great griffins

People come here mainly to visit the violin museum and many famous violin makers. It is an interesting building. There is a nice statue of Stradivarius and a child in the square. An association also publish a list of all the violin makers belonging to the association. Be warned that most of workshops close for long vacations during the month... More

The Duomo and belltower, and other buildings on this piazza are one of the most beautiful in Italy, which says a lot. Other than this piazza though, there isn't much to do in Cremona for a tourist unless you are into violins. But it's a very pleasant town to experience Italy 'off the tourist path'.

A really dramatic cathedral. Sit in the pews a while and contemplate, then walk around, it's spectacular.

A beautiful building from the outside but dark and rather uninviting on the inside. Personally, the building was not to my taste. You my find it more interesting.

I wasn't going to climb the 502 steps (I didn't count), but my daughter wanted to go up and they don't let minors go up by themselves, so up I went. A fair amount of climbing -- relatively low steps, fortunately -- produced a great view of the city. There are a number of stopping points where you can get... More

We were impressed by the beauty of the cathedral's front facade and maybe the high Torazzo is still more amazing. In time of our visit in the cathedral there was a Mass going on, so we did just a quick and quiet look to the interior. It was very nice inside, too.

I love Italy! Italian food is wonderful. In Cremona gnocchi in melted garganzolla is a must! If you travel by car get good directions, navigation is not always helpful. A lot of streets for padastriance only!

the TORRAZZO is an impressive view from any of the cafès on the square. It was magic to sit and listen to street musicians playing the violin. The inside of the church is also impressive, lots of frescoes, bring binoculars!
