Timeshare Travel #TravelTuesday – Pavia, Italy

The Ponte Coperto “Covered Bridge” over the Ticino River in Pavia, Italy, submitted by J. Hammond, Michigan.

Also known as the Ponte Vecchio Old Bridge, this is a brick and stone arch bridge that dates back to antiquity. The previous bridge, actually a replacement for a Roman construction, dated from 1354. It was heavily damaged by Allied action during WWII, requiring new construction in 1949.

This newer bridge has 5 arches compared to the 7 arches of the previous bridge. And, like its predecessor, it has a chapel.
