Town of Pavia

Contenuto della pagina



Situated only 35 kilometres south of Milan and linked by suburban rail, Pavia (originally Ticinum) enjoys the advantages and services of its near neighbour. However, it offers a calm, captivating and cooperative environment with a higher quality of life. The province of Pavia is known for agricultural products including wine, rice, cereals, and dairy products. Founded in Roman times, Pavia's population today is made up of approximately 70,000 inhabitants and 24,000 students.

It was the Longobard capital from 568-774, and its fascination remains intact with the centre's maze of narrow streets, ancient churches and elegant buildings, all bordered by the River Ticino.
