Visit to the heart of Cremona, the amazing Duomo Square with its antique monuments


The 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 continues with a pleasant walk in the so-called district of luthiers to see the places where Antonio Stradivari lived. The tour also includes a trip to some historical shops in Via Solferino and an interesting visit to the paved roman road where you can observe up-close two important remains of cardo and decumano streets, which are situated approx. 4 feet from street level.
The itinerary ends with the visit to a violinmaker's workshop, where the charm of a unique atmosphere comes alive: the scent of the natural varnishing, the wood, the large and small tools of the artisan, the drawings, and the internal moulds peculiar to the Cremonese tradition.
