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.

  • Fabulous bridge in Pavia, easy to find, accessible from both sides. Take time to walk over it. It was a lovely day which helped  more »
  • The bridge was totally restored, having previously been destroyed in WW2. It spans a very wide river, and put you in awe of the original craftsmen who built the original bridge so long ago.  more »

  • ‘Covered against rain when it’s raining, sun when it’s too hot. Helps me get across the river. Excellent bridge, would walk across it again. 5 stars’ [cit.]
  • I was in Italy for a portion of my summer vacation! I had a wonderful time. This place was very nice at night.
