Cremona condo description

Due Colonne is located on the corso, the shopping district in downtown Cremona. Steps from one of the most beautiful piazza in Italy, you will see the Torrazzo, the tallest brick bell tower in all of Europe.

Nestled on a cobble-stoned street, above a panetteria (bread store), this is a place for those that have already experienced Italy’s well-known destinations and want to live in a classic undiscovered Italian town away from the crowds of tourists.

If you saw the film The Red Violin, the opening scenes were filmed in Cremona, the “birth place of the violin. Visit the Cremonese (the 1721 Stradivari located in the Commune), check out the Stradivari museum, stroll the corso, enjoy the opera at the Ponchielli, or simply sit and sip a cappuccino in the piazza.

Due Colonne is in a renovated (2005) building in the historic district of Cremona. Comfortably sleeping four, this one-bedroom, smoke-free loft with cathedral ceilings is steps from an urban grocery store, a fresh fish market, wonderful restaurants, and all of the gelataria that you will need.

Your apartment in Cremona is centrally located to many other wonderful destinations in northern Italy: In about one hour you can tour: Milano, Verona, Parma, Mantova, Lago di Garda, Castell’Arquato (a quaint medieval town), Wine regions, The Alps and others.

In about two hours you can reach: Lago di Como and Bellagio, Torino (home of the 2006 Winter Olympics), Bologna, The Seas (Adriatic and Ligure) among other sites. Venice is only three and a half hours away!

Due Colonne is well situated for those coming without a car. Interntional flights arrive at Milan Malpensa, which is one hour by (very frequent) bus to Milan Central Station, from which trains take about 75 minutes to reach Cremona.

Cremona itself has an excellent urban transport system, and from the train station Milan, Piacenza, Fidenza, Crema, Lodi, Parma, Mantua and Brescia can be reached directly in about an hour or under, with Modena, Pavia, Bergamo and Bolgna taking somewhat longer. Many other places can be reached by train with connections.

If you plan to arrive by car, please research and understand the laws regarding driving in Italy and obey all signs that limit the traffic in the historic downtown. The sign may say, Zona Traffico Limitato. If you pass on a street with this sign, a photo of the license plate will be taken and you will eventually receive a fine in the mail. Once you do arrive at Due Colonne, my parents will show you where you can park nearby for free.

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: Mark and I have long thought about buying property in Italy and we finally purchased this wonderful condo in 2005. We always wanted to by a place that we would be proud to live in and we wanted it to be in the historic district of downtown Cremona.

                              Why the Owner Chose Cremona:
                              I grew up in Cremona and moved abroad when I was 24 years old. After I left Cremona I realized what a wonderful city it is and how it offers the best of the Italian way of life, 'la dolce vita'. My family continues to live in Cremona and my parents are the ones who greet our guests upon arrival.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              We enjoy slow strolls through the 'corso', beautiful architecture, wonderful Italian food, rhythms of Italian life, outdoor markets, history everywhere you look, waking up to the sound of the bells of the 'Torrazzo', cappuccino, espresso, and gelato, beautiful store windows with the latest fashion design, smells of freshly baked breads, ...
