Destination Overview

Pavia is a mid-sized city in the southern part of the Lombardy region of northern Italy, deep in the heart of Italian rice-growing territory and about 30 kilometres south of Milan. Pavia dates back to pre-Roman times and possesses a wealth of important historical sites, including many churches and museums. In medieval times Pavia was known as the 'city of a hundred towers'. Although not many of these towers now remain there is still a great deal to enjoy as you explore the narrow streets of the historic centre, including numerous churches and pretty small piazzas, the castle and the cathedral. No visit to Pavia would be complete without a visit to the the famous Carthusian Monastery known as the Certosa di Pavia in the countryside a few kilometres from the city and the most impressive example of renaissance architecture in the region. Founded as a monastery in 1396 most of the building dates from the 15th century. Beside many artistic and historic treasures Pavia has prestigious University (IUSS), engaged in several international exchange programs, lively cultural life and wide variety of delicious traditional Italian food.
