Cremona is probably not on many people’s ‘must see’ lists, and we certainly didn’t plan to go there, but it turns out that the city has a little history. It was an important Roman city (on the road from Genoa to Aquileia, the latter of which you’ll see in my next post) and the hometown of Stradavari, the guy who made all those million dollar violins. We saw many luthiers (my new word of the day!) around the old town, so I guess the tradition lives on.
Here’s another square in town.
And more groovy Italian peddle parking.
At night we ate well, as was the case every night in Italy (you really have to go and see what kind of crap you are eating back home and thinking it’s pizza and pasta!). Thanks to Shoko for thinking of taking pictures of our food – something that never seems to cross my mind.
