Here are the best things to do in Pavia.
1. Certosa di Pavia
One of the most notable Italian Renaissance buildings is the magnificent Certosa di, Pavia. Giangaleazzo Visconti of Milan founded the monastery, 10km north of Pavia, in 1396 as a chapel and a private tomb for the Visconti family.
Originally intended to be an architectural companion to Milan's Duomo, the architects worked on its design; however, the final result, which was completed more than a century later, was a unique combination of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.
2. La Torre degli Aquila
A trip to Pavia is almost only worth eating in the medieval tower of Dimo and Maria. Although rooted in tradition (agricultural sickles and ancient pots adorn the walls), sensational cooking is very creative.
