Ponte Coperto, Pavia

4.3
#1 of 56 in Things to do in Pavia
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.

    One of the most beautiful sights of Pavia, Ticino offers breathtaking views then is very close to the old town.

    Is a common covered bridge, just typical because it represents the city of Pavia. Is most significant when viewed from afar, from photos. Cross it nothing to fancy.

  • 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...
  • 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.
  • Nice bridge. Looks great even at 🌃
