CREMONA and LODI: HISTORICAL GEMS OF THE LOMBARDY REGION
Once you get to the Lodi and Cremona countryside, you’ll soon find out that there are a lot of things to see and experience. You can choose to relax in the shade of their forests or dive into the millennial history of this territory by taking cultural trips in both cities.
Lodi is a medieval town rich in old monuments and museums, which celebrate the historical identity of this town. You don’t want to miss the Lodi Cathedral, the Broletto, a monumental building, which dates back to the twelfth century, and the Church of Incoronata, a Renaissance masterpiece.
If you want to learn more about this unique Italian city then also pay a visit to its Art Museum and its millennial Library. Driving a few kilometers south, you will reach Cremona, the other gem of this beautiful territory.
Cremona is a Romanesque town with one of the most well preserved historical center in Italy. Walking by its streets you’ll notice the numerous palaces and ancient buildings, which are located all over the town, with a high concentration in the main city square.
In fact, this is where the majestic Cathedral has been built centuries ago, alongside the baptistery and the Torrazzo, one of the highest Italian bell towers.
This is a territory where culture and tradition play an important role and the love and care with which its inhabitants preserve their historical landscape is a remarkable statement.
EATING IN CREMONA and LODI IS AN UNFORGETTABLE CULINARY EXPERIENCE
Besides long walks immersed in the nature and cultural escapes in both Cremona and Lodi, another interesting activity to do over here is, well…eating and drinking! You’re in Italy after all! As for the rest of the Lombardy Region, also Lodi and Cremona are very renowned for their cold cuts and cheeses.
Lodi is the homeland of the popular (and utterly delicious) Grana Padano, and this is where the mascarpone, the famous Italian cream cheese with which you make tiramisu, was created. Accompany these delicious cheeses with a warm slice of homemade bread or as a condiment of your main courses.
Cremona is instead specialized in sweet treats, such as the torrone, hard and super sweet, and the mostarda, preserved fruits to be accompanied with blue cheese and homemade ricotta especially on Christmas time.
