Learn the secrets of violin making in Cremona, the charming city of Stradivarius, travel to Parma, a pleasant city with a touch of Austria, as the former "Petite Capital" of the Duchy of Marie Louise of Austria. The city is famous for its opera house where several of Verdiís works were premiered and also for Toscanini, whose modest birthplace shows many important memorabilia form the famous conductorís life. Visit nearby Roncola, the house where Verdi learned to love music in his motherís womb and Bussetto where he created his first famous operas.
