Tour description

I like to accompany the streets of Pavia where many Lombard kings lived.
Alboin was the first king to "knock" forcefully at the gates of Pavia, Liutprando is buried in one of our churches, Rotari founded a church in Pavia and scholars say that the Lombard laws were written in this city.
The remains of Theodolinda's daughter were found in the church of San Giovanni Domnarum. In short, it is possible to review the history of the Italian peninsula by visiting the "city of 100 towers".

If you come during the summer solstice, I will let you experience the moment when Frederick Barbarossa was crowned king in 1155.

Suggested itinerary (in case of funerals, weddings or other celebrations it will not be possible to visit the inside of the churches):

  • Covered Bridge from the BORGO side (Departure)
  • San Teodoro
  • San Michele Maggiore
  • Corso Garibaldi where Alboino fell from his horse
  • Crypt of Sant Eusebio
  • Crypt of San Giovanni in Domnarum
  • San Pietro in Ciel d'Oro

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
