Full description
Meet your guide next to the famous Violin Museum and discover the most representative and beautiful sites around the old town, such as Piazza Stradivari, Piazza del Comune, the Cathedral of Cremona and the Torrazzo, the legendary Negozio Sperlari (the most ancient shop in town), the Church of Sant'Abbondio and the Church of Santa Agata.
Visit the Cathedral with its sixteenth-century fresco 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.

Towards the end of the guided tour, head back to the Violin Museum for a visit with an audio-guide. You'll be fascinated by the five centuries old violin-making tradition in Cremona, by the instruments, and the stories you'll discover inside the museum.
