Taking the E-62 route from Milan towards Tortona, the lovely medieval town of Pavia makes for a great stop-over for a couple of days. From imposing castles and churches to beautiful valleys, mountains and lakes, the Pavia province offers holidaymakers a multitude of things to do and see. There are no fewer than 25 important ecological tourism routes, of which the extensive and very lovely river park of Ticino is just one.
Many places offer boat hire making it possible to get some exercise, see the sights and enjoy a day out away from the rental car and visiting crowded tourist sites. Taking a canoe or kayak out for a day on one of Pavia’s canals or on the Ticino River itself, one can breathe in deeply, let the scenery drift by and dream of a well-earned plate of Parma ham and Gorgonzola for lunch! There are plenty of places where one can stop off for a picnic, enjoy a swim or go for a walk in the forested hills to escape the summer heat.
One such ecological route follows the age-old Via Francigena, along which the ancient Romans travelled on their way to Rome and other important European cities. In medieval times this became a major route for pilgrims travelling to the Vatican in Rome.
The Via Francigena traverses the Pavia province in parts, but also stretches into neighbouring France and Switzerland, making it an amazing hiking and cycling route to follow. The route is very well sign-posted and along the way there are cheap B&Bs and guesthouses happy to extend a welcome to tired modern-day pilgrims.
For footsore modern holidaymakers there’s the alternative method, namely driving along motorways and B-routes in a rental car, where the satellite navigation system from Alamo Milan Malpensa Airport will direct travellers to scenic landmarks along the Via Francigena route.
The Italian stretch of the Via Francigena passes through the towns of Ivrea, Vercelli, Pavia, Fidenza, Aulla, Luni, Lucca, San Gimignano, Poggibonsi, Siena, San Quirico d’Orcia, Bolsena, Viterbo and Sutri, before finally taking travellers to the delights of Rome. For a day tour the ancient route from Pavia to Santa Cristina e Bissone measures approximately 27.4 km, easily done by experienced hikers or cyclists.
Santa Cristina e Bissone has been serving as an overnight stop over for pilgrims traversing the Pavia province for many centuries. The small town is located around 45 km southeast of Milan and 25 km southeast of the town of Pavia.
