About
The Torrazzo is in effect one of the monuments that best symbolizes the city of Cremona: it is in fact the highest medieval brick bell tower in Europe (about 112.22 m). Its structure exemplifies the extreme accuracy of ancient construction techniques and is considered a perfect combination of extremely different architectural styles. Thanks to the recent opening of the new Vertical Museum, some themes related to the study of the clock are examined in depth. Inside the 4 new rooms you can find some curious historical objects and the reconstruction of some antique clocks. There is also a fantastic installation of Foucault's Pendulum. Its oscillation demonstrates the rotation of the Earth from a scientific point of view. At the top of the tower you can admire a wonderful view of the city and the surrounding landscape.

Lots of steps. Lots of steps! But on the upside, the staircase is wider than in many bell towers, & there are various levels to stop off at for a breather on the way up. They operate a traffic light system where the staircase narrows. The views make the effort just about worthwhile, but there are no photo opportunities until you reach the very top as the look out spots are covered in wire mesh. The adjacent Cathedral is free to enter & is stunning, but there’s a charge for the Tower, Museum & Baptistry.

Visit to see what Cremona was like as my grandfather aligned himself to this town in the early 1900s.
Sort of barren and quiet. Visit to see center of Cremona and it’s major church. Church was dark but that may be t
