Ponte Coperto, Pavia

(4.3/5 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.

  • I would say that it is really a historical masterpiece, seen in the evening has its own because, especially during the Festival, which takes place in early September. All the stalls, with many people who visit it! Is to see!

  • Great frame on Ticino, beautiful view for photos and paintings; very impressive especially at sunset ... It is, without doubt, the representation of Pavia, historic city. A bridge that connects Borgo Ticino from the Center. Walking distance to downtown.

  • The covered bridge, also known as the old bridge, as well as the surrounding area is really worth seeing. Through Ticino in the historical center of the city and you will find around bars, ice cream but also a lot of peace and quiet. The area around is called Lungo Ticino and in the evening many local people, especially in the summer, walk and enjoy the beautiful view. In summer better take insect repellent mosquitoes:-). I love this site.
