Description
The enchanting Cremona on the banks of the River Po is a city best known for its highly coveted 16th century Stradivarius violins - but there are secrets around every corner of this perfectly pruned market town.

At the Piazza del Comune - the veritable heart of the city and known locally as ‘Piazza del Duomo’ - you’ll take in the curious eight-sided Baptistery and captivating Cathedral. The decorated bell-tower of the Torrazzo of Cremona dates back to 1525, and you’ll learn about its beautiful astronomical clock as you take in the eclectic atmosphere of the surrounding square.

Meandering through the charming streets your guide will point out the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical signs all around you. You’ll take in some of the city’s most spectacular churches, while at Negozio Sperlari you’ll discover what’s inside the most ancient shop in town.

This private tour offers a personalized experience of the city where you’ll discover its true history, and come away with an understanding of how daily life unfolds in one of Lombardy’s most musical towns.
