Pavia è vicina, e la giornata che ti aspetta bella quanto la meta finale: immergiti nella campagna pavese, costellata di macchie d'alberi e casolari, fino a raggiungere il Parco del Ticino.
Pavia is getting closer, and today's walk is almost as beautiful as your final destination: you'll walk immersed in the Pavese countryside, in an idyllic scenery scattered with trees, rare birds and farms, until reaching the Park of Ticino River.
Take some time to enjoy this peaceful oasis, rest under the trees, sunbathe on the beaches and meadows along the river, spot squirrels and titmice - but pay attention to the time, as it seems to flow faster here.
One of the most beautiful cities of the whole itinerary, Pavia boasts a splendid old town centre, where the beautiful facades of palaces and churches guard all sort of artistic treasures; its covered bridge on River Ticino is among the most famous in Italy, and the cobbled streets and lively piazzas of the centre are always filled with university students and locals.
This is the perfect place to enjoy a celebratory aperitivo - or if you have a sweet tooth, a cappuccino and a slice of Torta Paradiso, a beloved recipes of all Italian grandmas.
