Cremona 2.5-Hour Private Guided Walking Tour

1. Cremona 2.5-Hour Private Guided Walking Tour

Although mostly known around the world for its violin-making traditions, this city hides beautiful examples of medieval architecture, summed up in the picturesque Piazza del Comune, the real heart of Cremona.  This itinerary begins with a visit to the Cathedral with its sixteenth-century fresco cycle in the central nave, the great Baptistery in Romanesque style, the famous Torrazzo (the highest masonry bell tower in Europe), the Town Hall with beautiful frescoed rooms and the Militia Lodge. The tour then continues with a pleasant walk in the so-called district of luthiers to see the places where the famous Stradivari lived. Follow your guide and visit some historical shops in Via Solferino, then walk through the paved Roman road where you can observe up-close two important remains of "cardo" and "decumano" streets, which are situated approximately 4 feet from street level.
