  • The charm and history of this church, make it a must see for anyone visiting Cremona. Impressive and full of frescoes inside, didn't even undecorated space ... a real treat for the eyes

  • Beautiful Cathedral, with a great history and works of all value. Torrazzo has an impressive overview although the stairs climbing become a bit narrower. Understandable the ticket 4 euro for accessing the torrazzo, incomprehensible the ticket 2 euro for access to the Baptistery.

  • We arrive in Cremona to visit the Basilica, the baptistery, and Torrazzo. In the historical centre of this beautiful city, strolling in the pedestrian zone, arrive in this beautiful square, and now the view is captured by the astronomical clock in the center of the Torrazzo. We decide to go up to enjoy the view from the top, 502 steps, with the last piece of the spiral staircase. Sin a little haze on the horizon, but worthwhile, costs 5 euros. We visit then the Baptistry and basilica, we remain enchanted by its beauty, frescoes, marbles, columns and paintings of rare beauty.

  • 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.
  • Gorgeous
  • Dedicated to Santa Maria Assunta, Cremona Cathedral was built in the early 12th century. It dominates the piazza del Comune, the heart and the heart of the medieval city, the Torrazzo and the baptistery form the city's religious life
