Ponte Coperto, Pavia

4.3
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.

  • After the visit to the Duomo, you can descend along the road that leads to the covered bridge for a short walk on the Ticino

  • Visiting Pavia for a day, could not miss the stage to bridge covered, of which I was impressed by the architectural elegance and presence for a city as small as Pavia. The bridge is traversable both on foot and by the means. I took advantage of it for a leisurely walk with the river Breeze. Covered Bridge is definitely one of the most beautiful attractions in the city. It is a must see.

  • Apart from the summer, it looks great on the bridge... There's always a nice fresh air... And then the bridge has an infinite charm..... The symbol of Pavia with the annexed "Borgo a Basso"... To visit... Many beautiful houses continually restructured cause full of Ticino and the famous "Linguacciona" which is heard by the elders of the place.... Along tell
