Description

Pavia is a city in Lombardy, northern Italy. It is located on Ticino River, some 20 miles (32 km) south of Milan, with which it is connected by a canal. Known as Ticinum in Roman times, Pavia was an important military site and the city still retains nowadays the ancient plan of the fortified place it then was.

Among the most prominent landmarks are the Certosa, a Carthusian monastery founded in the fourteenth century, the cathedral, the Castle Visconti…
