This is an ideal day trip from Milan if you like music and want to experience a magical place where past and present live together.
The Cathedral of Cremona is particulary meaningful and is wordly renowned as the Sistine Chapel of Northern Italy. The interior includes superb paintings and decorations, and what it is considered to be a thorn from Jesus’s crown.
This church was founded in 1463 to celebrate the union between two powerful rival families, the Visconti and the Sforza. It is an important site of the Lombard mannerism.
It is a musical instrument museum famous for its collection of stringed instruments crafted by renowned luthiers including Stradivari and Guarneri. It is divided into 10 rooms where visitors can explore the history of violinmaking in Cremona.
