Cathedral of Cremona, Cremona

4.7
The façade of 12th-century Cathedral of Cremona is one of the most important examples of Romanesque art in Europe. Inside, admire important frescoes, the wooden choir, and the large silver and gold altar cross. Climb 502 steps to the top of the iconic bell tower, the tallest premodern building in Italy. Stop before the top to visit the small display--with video--about the clockworks of the tower.

    Parking in piazza Lodi, you reach the main square in Cremona with a chance with 6 euro ticket to visit the famous torrazzo, doing 502 steps you come to the top and you can enjoy the view of the city, on the first floor a short film of 10 minutes to know something more on the clock. Nice is the Cathedral baptistery but to strike for the decorations but also for the ability to rotate freely even in the sacristy. Every altar inside deserves to dwell for a few minutes.

    Surprising visit to the city of Cremona. Very nice view of this part of the city centre. Cathedral full of decorations and Torrazzo gorgeous

    the visit is interesting for the property, the decorations and the crypt. Also the baptistery is to visit. Too bad that a unmotivated and listless Lady at the Tourist Info point (near the Cathedral) has not engaged in well that minimal motivation to visit omitting, indeed ignoring, reduction of admission for those over 65. Municipality of Cremona: wake up!

    Google doesn't seem to want to list hours for Cathedrals which is a shame because this one is closed from noon until 3:30 every day during the week, which is a big problem if you are just there for the day and didn't hit it first thing. Cremona doesn't really have a full day's worth of attractions in my humble opinion. The cathedral was absolutely worth waiting for but Google, please add hours for attractions like this!

    Imposing, elegant mix of architectural and historical periods, particularly inside. Really nice landscapes from Torrazzo, its bell tower, in the top 3 list of the tallest brick structures in the world.
