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.

  • Visiting pavia cannot but take a walk on the covered bridge, symbol of the city. Better at night, if you are as a couple is very romantic.

  • The covered bridge of Pavia, though rebuilt after World War II, is certainly worth a visit in the city.

  • Attention, the current bridge was opened in 1951, recently damaged by bombing in 1944 and soon after demolished by the Ministry of public works. Now, despite his young age of 65 years, presents worrisome signs of ... for which they were taken like one way from the city to the suburbs, although personally I would prefer. Note that the above was built in around 1350 and yielded only to the bombings. Still remains a beautiful bridge to visit joining the Center from Moscow.
