Ponte Coperto, Pavia

(4.2/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Since Roman times, a bridge has stood over the Ticino river at this spot--Ponte Coperto itself was built in 1949 when Allied bombing destroyed the previous one, dating from 1354. Today, the covered brick and stone arch bridge is a great place to take in the sights of Pavia away from the crowds. A chapel stands on the bridge, just as it has since medieval times.

  • Visiting Pavia cannot go for a walk. Very quaint! From the shore opposite to the direction of the city centre, especially in the evenings, you can enjoy a wonderful view and even a little romantic bridge and much of the old town.

  • Beautiful bridge, well maintained, nice view of the Ticino. Take a walk here and if the weather is good go on the meadow on the banks of the river!

  • For a simple aesthetic and suggestive question should close it to traffic and make it exclusively. Unfortunately it would paralyze the city, this does not detract from the fact that it is a cornerstone of Pavia. to go for a walk along the Ticino!
