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.

‘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.
