Cremona is a lovely city to explore on foot, with some amazing palazzos and piazzas, and thankfully free (in mid September) of large numbers of visitors. Plenty of history, including the Stradivarius connection, and plenty of cafes to choose from.

This is a perfect place for an aperitif. Grab a chair at a cafe spilling out into the square and enjoy some of the best architectural views in Italy. The drinks come with a fantastic array of little snacks and the bars are in a...More

This the proud center of Cremona, a quiet square with the spectacular church of Maria Assunta, the Battistero and other beautiful palaces. There are several bars and restaurants where one can sit and enjoy the place and the people.

Not much to see in Cremona but is you go there this Piazza is very impressive. We were there on market day (Wednesday) which added more colour to what you can see.

Possible one of the best central squares on Lombardy (ruined only by an ungly fascist building in one of the corners) with the cathedral, batisteto and municipal palace of medieval origens. Great place for a short visit

This is as clean, well lighted square in the center of the city. Nearly every building is a landmark. You will often hear very talented street musicians. There are photo opportunities in every direction. There are a few cafe/restaurants where you can enjoy the scenery....More

The self tour is well worth your time. This building has had changes made but has been the city hall for over 800 years. It is a fairly quick walk around but so informative. Free!

Great to visit during the evening, when there is no daily market. You can enjoy the beauty of the Cathedral with some very nice lights. Plenty of Gelateria where you can grab a sweet and enjoy it below the arches.

This piazza is extraordinary in that it seems unchanged from, say, five centuries ago. Visitors can see (for a small fee) a beautiful battistero. Nearby, the duomo houses excellent work of local artisans. Adjacent to the duomo is a tower of 505 steps which gives...More
