If your trip to Pavia is all sorted out but your travel itinerary is a bit on the empty side, let us give you a helping hand.
Plan a stop at Campus Aquae. It's one sight you'll usually find on most visitors' to-do lists. If you still have space on your travel itinerary, Ponte Coperto and Cathedral of Pavia will keep you amused too.
Dig out your bucket list, because it's about to get a little longer. Once you've marked off the best sights in Pavia, you'll find a must-see attraction just a little down the road. Cathedral of Milan hardly needs an introduction. Located about 19 miles away in Milan, your travel itinerary should include this must-do attraction.
Below we've listed our best tips and tricks to help you save:
Having your own car in Pavia will give you more flexibility to go wherever you want. Maybe you just can't wait to head out of town, hit the highway, and see where the wind takes you. If so, drive off in one of our full-size or mid-size SUVs and discover the rural landscapes in the surrounding area. If you'd rather experience the bright lights of the city, opt for something small. Zipping around busy streets will be a lot less stressful with a compact or mini car.
For some of us, owning a high-end vehicle may be a little out of reach. But renting your dream car is easier than you think! Picture yourself cruising into town in a high-end sports car, even if it's only for a little while. Or perhaps all you want is a set of wheels to get you safely from A to B. Flashy or affordable? Either way, one thing's for sure — there's a rental car to suit you in Pavia.
Driving around a new city needn't leave you gripping the steering wheel with white knuckles. If you're headed to Pavia, get confident on the road with this helpful advice:
In Pavia, you'll have to stick to the right side. When exploring someplace new, it's always a good idea to select an automatic vehicle. That way, you can focus on the road and not worry about gear changes.
Finding a car space in Pavia shouldn't be too hard. Of course, it depends on where you are and when — it could be tricky parking in the very center during busy periods.
One of the upsides of vacationing in a smaller city is lighter traffic, so don't stress too much about rush-hour gridlock. With a population of roughly 65,700, you can expect a smooth Pavia driving experience.
In Pavia, speed limits range from 50 km/h to 130 km/h. Residential zones have a default speed limit of 50 km/h unless otherwise indicated.
One of two things will happen. Your rental car company may charge the amount of the fine to your credit card. This is the usual approach. Alternatively, it may pass on your contact information to local law enforcement agencies so the fine is sent directly to you.
It is prohibited to use your cell phone while driving in Pavia, and you could even be hit with a fine for just holding your phone if you're in control of a vehicle. That said, the use of hands-free or Bluetooth functions is allowed, as long as you keep your attention on the road.
In Pavia, it is illegal to drive with a BAC (blood alcohol content) greater than 0.05%. If you're in the mood for a few drinks, it's a good idea to leave your car at your hotel.
It's a big no-no to turn on a red light in Pavia. If you come across one, take the opportunity to enjoy a couple of mindful moments until the signal goes back to green.
Although there are some exceptions, seat belts must be fastened in Pavia.
