Stage 14. Pavia to Santa Cristina e Bissone

  “The way crosses the alluvial plain of Basso Pavese, with its characteristic river terraces in the S. Lazzaro, Belgioioso and S. Cristina areas.

Along the route there are several interesting architectural constructions, mainly religious buildings: from the imposing façade of S. Michele in Pavia to the little church of San Giacomo.

There are quite a few stretches along the verge but mostly on quiet roads with little traffic; particular care must be taken at  the roundabout on SS617.

Outside urban centres it is not possible to access water sources”.
