Day trip to Ferrara: our walk took us through time, from the lanes of merchants to Renaissance grandeur of the Este urban vision. From the middle ages to today, the area around the Cattedrale has always been the focus of the city life. The seat of various rulers over the years and a commercial area, it is still a favourite...

The famous writer Giorgio Bassani dedicated it a beautiful novella, many Ferrarese prefer it for jogging. It is a very relaxing place, and in a certain point you pass the Jewish cemetery with Bassani's and Gianfranco Rossi' s tombs, among others.

The first thing that stole our hearts in Ferrara was how the ramparts had been transformed from medieval defences into idyllic gardens and bike paths. We rented a pair, so let me suggest a route. Take the Via Baluardi, past the 17th century Porta Romana, along Viale Alfonso d'Este, beside the mount of San Giorgi. Continue farther, descending to Via... More

The very ancient walls around the city are the favourite place of citizens for walking and jogging in the nature. Here you can find people from very early in the morning till dusk.

I can recommend the Old Town of Ferrara. The Renaissance is there on life in this buildings. This Wall is a good Thing to see with some informations about it. When you are in Northern Italy, then you must visit Ferrara.

A good way to explore the city: riding a bike on or along the walls it's under 15 km and it's only interrupted in a couple of places near the rail station.

It's not completley intact, and at parts you need to use the walkways going aroung it, instead of upon it. It's where half the city do their evening power walk or run. It's great to join them.

We cycled. You can hire bikes at many outlets in the city. The width and surface on the top of the walls varies but basically it's wide and smooth. Some of the paths are outside but alongside the walls and these are narrower and can be busy. There are very few sections where you have to peddle uphill and these... More

It's a very long walk if you choose to do all of it. Just a section of the wall walk will suffice to give you an idea, considering that from the wall yiu'll see very little of them, as you are on them, and very little of the city. Still a very nice walk for a sunny and hot summer... More
