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.

  • It's a lot cooler the history of bridge (construction, Nazi bombing, reconstruction ...) than the place itself. For me, it was worth it just to know for "by the curriculum" (after all, is the symbol of the city), but has much more interesting places Pavia to visit.

  • I think it's one of the most beautiful bridge in Northern Italy! Represents the city and especially in both summer and winter when it is submerged by the fog!
