UnderstandEdit

The province of Pavia consists of a flat part in the valley of the rivers Po and Ticino and a hilly part, called the Oltrepò Pavese. The latter part, although hardly known abroad, is in fact the largest wine producing region of Lombardy and has its own typical regional wines like Bonarda, Buttafuoco, Sangue di Giuda. The province offers some important sights of which the abbey of Certosa di Pavia is the most important. The city of Pavia itself is a nice, calm, relaxing historical city, with several interesting sights (tomb of Augustine, Boethius).
