"Stradivari's birthplace" Cremona by barrikello

Cremona Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 105 photos

An underrated interesting town

Cremona is one of my favourite Lombardy towns. It doesn't boast anything unmissable - still, it's quiet and pleasant, true. It gave birth to the world wide famous violin composer, named Stradivari and now many artists keep his passion alive by carving the most requested violins in the world.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet and pleasant, 'far from the madding crowd'
  • In a nutshell:A place to discover, worth the visit

    I went through this place so many times by train but never saw the town. I must go back to see the violins and have some torrone.
