Ponte Coperto, Pavia

Bridge
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. Take a look at our Pavia vacation route planner to schedule your visit to Ponte Coperto and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Extraordinary covered bridge already started by the Romans, but built in medieval times and destroyed in World War II but then later rebuilt as such.

  • Among the most characteristic places of Pavia, absolutely to photograph, unfortunately there are machines of passage because it's closed to traffic, but is used to exit from pavia towards voghera. The bridge still offers a beautiful view of the river and on the sides there is a nice walk in the park along the embankment, always full of young people, you can spread out and relax, chat, have a picnic, sunbathing ...

  • We went to Pavia by corporate outing, the Guide showed us this covered Roman bridge, destroyed during the second world war and rebuilt in the years 50, very special, it's nice to stay on deck watching the river Ticino

  • Amazing way to enter Pavia, look at this covered bridge, take time to cross it and look at the details
  • Beautiful brick bridge a must see and walk to the other side for a magnificent view and park.
  • Be sure to take a walk on this covered bridge, restored to its actual shape after the World War II bombing.
