Pavia seems to have a couple main drags here with shops ranging from pizzerias to high end fashion, boasting of fur coats priced in the thousands of Euros. A block or so away from us is an amazing gelateria that has all these fantastic flavors and a very Italian woman behind the counter. She chooses flavors for us because we fumble so badly with our poor Italian. Can't complain about any of her choices yet, and I hear it is the best place in town. So far I have eaten pasta and pizza for basically every meal, including home-cooked ones (here is my Man enjoying our first). Haven't gotten tired of it yet, but maybe I will. We scoped out a sushi place the other day to run off to if we do. There is a large supermarket a short bus ride away, but I have been mostly buying from all the little shops around the corner from me here in the old town. Bread shops, produce shops, fresh pasta shops, tiny markets, etc line the street just a short block away, in a very traditionally European way.
