Pavia has a beautiful historic center where you can visit several palaces, squares, shops, bars and restaurants. Very pleasant to take an interesting walk.

We visited in November and it was probably not the best time to truly appreciate the beauty of the architecture. Certainly well worth visiting.

Thoroughly enjoyed walking around this town and taking in the sights. Be sure to stop at Cafè Pedrocchi and have a Compari Spritz before dinner. It is a landmark café founded in the 18th century.

I spent 5 days in Padua in the historic center near the Palazzo della Regione and the university, and it was terrific - I'll be sorry to leave. There are some wonderful sites, great places to eat, and generally safe streets on which to take an evening stroll (watch out for cyclists). Being near the university adds a vibrancy to the atmosphere and keeps prices down in the historical center, since it's not just tourists who visit here. There is art, history, science, and energy here - I believe it's an undiscovered gem that people only think of as a cheaper place to stay when visiting Venice. It's MUCH nicer and more interesting than Venice!
