  • We visited the castle one Saturday morning with a very small girl. The facility is beautiful and really interesting inside Collections. The hotel is also convenient with the stroller! The only drawback? As often happens in Italy (unfortunately) some collections are open only Monday through Friday ... still worth the visit!

  • I do applaud one of cultural workers who entertained me during my visit to the archaeological section (full of pieces that rivals any Museum): not the usual tour guide who is sitting to get his sprouts on your mobile but prepared and curious towards the visitor. Unfortunately I can't remember the name ... I hope if if you go and visit this place you will find her. As I said a moment ago, the archaeological museum houses a rich collection: I was particularly struck by the Lombard section ... extraordinary jewellery and beautiful carved slabs in relief! One of the most beautiful museums that Pavia owns and which unfortunately is not the preferred destination of those few tourists visiting the capital of Langobardia Major. Let us jump. You will not regret it!

  • I'm not the greatest Italian museums, nor the very rich or famous, but contain works that you won't find anywhere else. The archaeological section remains important to the history of the Lombard Kingdom, the pinacoteca Malaspina, with the portrait of a man by Antonello da Messina and the Christ carrying the cross of the Bergognone; but also the picture gallery of 800 works by painters lombardi and pavesi

  • Beautiful Visconti Castle, located in the central position in Pavia! This mediaval castle (1360) is a must see when visiting Pavia! I had a chance to visit it during the little beer festival so the atmosphere was really great! We enjoyed nice music and great local food and beers, while enjoying magnificent interior courtyard of the castle! Recommended!
  • niente di che
