Ponte Coperto, Pavia

4.2
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.

  • Impressive and very peculiar bridge! It's remarkably still on duty for private and commercial traffic. But indeed that's a pity also: I'd be fantastic as a zero traffic area...
  • One of the symbols of Pavia and therefore a must see; it gives the city a unique skyline and charme
  • It's the perfect gathering point for young people, the sunset looks fabulous from the riverside.
  • It is good option to see in Pavia.It is almost new and it reconstructed after WW2.
  • Bridge is nice, the public spaces around the bridge are exceptional for views, lazing about and strolling.
