Pavia

Pavia is a nice town south of Milan. There are many historical sights in the city.

But since I've been to Pavia before, we will start with something different: a visit the Museum of Electrical Technology. Alessandro Volta, the inventor of the battery and for whom the unit Volt was named after, was a professor at the University of Pavia. This is a museum that is a tribute to his discoveries.
