Even though the original bridge was destroyed this 'new' one built after second world war is very much in keeping and has many of the older features.

This bridge was built after the war but has Roman and medieval roots which you can still see at the base. Spanning the Ticino river, it is a fine entrance to Pavia.

Though the bridge was devastated many times due to war, the present one reassembles the original. It is one of the landmarks of Pavia. The photo was taken in 2017 winter.

A beautiful visit of the covered bridge over the river. The cars crossing doesn't help to make the environment peaceful, but despite that, it is a delicious place to visit.

This bridge replaced the lod bridge destroyed in WW2, seen from Ponte Liberta it kind of looks authentic but it has no real character. Look at the remnants of the much older bridge at the end of Strada Nuova, neside the new bridge.

We were recommended this by work colleagues so paid a visit. The original bridge was bombed by the allies in world war 2 so the new version was built after the war. You can still see some of the old bridge. It's a good looking...More
