Tourism Pavia, ideas about visiting Lombardy

Tourism Pavia. Where to go in such a distinct hub for tourism in Lombardy? Let yourselves be amazed by visiting this territory's lush nature and cultural landmarks only a few kilometers away from Milan.


It comprises three areas: the Pavese plains on which the city was erected at the confluence of the Po and Ticino rivers in order to keep floods and enemy attacks at bay, serving as geographical center, the Oltrepò, an optimal hillside zone to grow vineyards and produce fine wine, and the Lomellina with its ancestral rice paddies.    


Tourism in Pavia will allow you to embark in a romantic getaway. Go across the inspiring old bridge or Ponte Coperto and discover the provincial capital's treasures: the Cathedral, its historical University and civic museums that are ideal for visiting. 


Canals and waterways are also fascinating attractions for tourism in Pavia. The Naviglio, built by Gian Galeazzo Visconti in the XIVth century links it to the neighboring Milanese metropolis, passing by the Certosa and several watermills scattered through the landscape. The one in Bereguardo is a specially popular among rowing enthusiasts. 


If you wish to plan to enjoy tourism in Lombardy with the whole family, visiting Pavia is the right choice. It will exceed your espectations.
