One of the symbols of the city

This beautiful covered bridge is a remaking of the ancient bridge of 1352 destroyed by bombing of Second World War.
The ancient bridge was itself a replacement for a Roman construction. In the Roman period Pavia was called Ticinium.

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.

A must-see of Pavia
Nov 2019 • Friends
The Ponte Coperto leads to a really nice and picturesque part of Pavia, which is great for a walk along the river and the colorful houses. The bridge itself is also nice, with high arcs giving way to the view.

Historic Covered Bridge in Pavia
Sep 2019
One of Pavia's most known attractions is this covered bridge from where you can take nice photos. Was rebuilt after being destroyed during the war.

A Landmark in Pavia.
Jul 2019
The Ponte Coperto ('Covered Bridge', also called Ponte Vecchio) is a bridge over the Ticino river in Pavia, which connects the historic city center and the rest of the city.
The bridge is characteristic and a landmark in Pavia.
It has five arches and is completely covered with two portals at the ends and a small religious chapel in the center. Although the current bridge was built in 1949, it re-proposes the forms of the ancient Ponte Coperto, dating back to the 14th century.
Already in Roman times, there was bridge over the Ticino river, of which some remains can be seen next to the current bridge.
The Ponte Coperto is nice to visit, but seems a spooky after dark.

Good pictures over the river
May 2019 • Family
It reminded me the bridge from Luzern, but that one is lower than this one. You can get great pictures of the bridge over the river, especially if you are lucky to get a good sunny day!

A wonderful bridge (must have looked even more impressive before being bombed in WWII, what a loss!)
Mar 2018 • Friends
Ponte Coperto, a covered bridge which originally dated from the 14th century but was destroyed during WWII and had to be rebuilt a few years later trying to imitate the original. It is an impressive sight nonetheless and certainly gives the city and even more medieval look
