Which words come to your mind when thinking about Cremona? Torrone and violino, of course! Listed among the UNESCO sites with Intangible Cultural Heritage, the town boasts an alluric elegance and numerous landmarks of the so-called lombard identity.
Our licensed expert guide will bring you around on a nice walk to touch the most iconic corners of the town, starting from Piazza del Comune, with its 13th-century Loggia dei Militi and the renouned medieval Torrazzo.
Not far from there, you will stumble upon the millenary ensemble of both the Duomo and the Baptistery, perfect examples of the romanesque art with that peculiar lombard touch which is known today as romanico padano.
A special stop will be dedicated to Museo del Violino, where you will get acquainted with maestro Antonio Stradivari, his splendid violins, the arts-and-crafts needed to build them and the evolution of this magic instrument from the origins to the current day.
