The first days adventure was to the town of Cremona. It is known for its violins. Stradivarius worked here and there are currently several hundred workshops in town.
The visit included the Violin Museum which has just opened and has some nice interactive displays as well as a very extensive collection of violins from the early makers.
We were treated to a concert using two different ones and even to my tin ear there was a real difference in them.

An interesting sculpture outside the museum.
After a 2 and half hour lunch, we toured the main church in town. A several century building project.

Some statuary above the entrance.
