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.

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.

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.

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.
