Beautiful morning. Competent, kind and very nice guide. We visited the Violin Museum, then the church of Sant'Agostino. We then moved on to the Piazza del Duomo, with the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Palazzo Comunale. The city is truly beautiful and still too underrated from a tourist point of view. The guide allowed us to discover really interesting curiosities and anecdotes that make Cremona a city with unexpected European records. Really recommended!

Guided tour lasted only 2.5 hours. After that you were alone in the museum. In the end we were only in 2 buildings - a church and the cathedral.
