Le mura Di Ferrara

Great place to walk, jog, cycle, sit and chat, take a nap, read or just relax in the shade. they run around the city's perimeter and are the largest walls encircling a city.

The historic walls of Ferrara provide a scenic, shaded walk with plenty of visual interest. You can also cycle on them as they are wide and level. Worth a daily visit, the circumference is 9 kilometers so in a few days you could easily cover it all.

Lovely peaceful walk on wide walls surounded by trees, but not so much to see from the walls on Eastern side as we expected.

My husband and I completed almost all of the 9 kilometer walk around Ferrara. Whilst the walk is interesting, some of the wall paths badly need cleaning up and defining and something needs to be done to stop the dogs fouling the paths. Ferrara could look at the way the walls are maintained in Lucca. In Lucca the route is... More

The wall around the medieval centre of Ferrara is virtually intact. It is 9km in length with a superb path around the whole of it. Passing mainly through 'parkland' this makes it ideal for walking or cycling. A map from the tourist office will show its location, but if in doubt head off from the city centre in a straight...

We had a lovely day exploring Ferrara and had taken our own bikes to ride around the walls as we had previously done this in Lucca. We found the route quite confusing and not well signposted, some areas the route was very clear but in others it was more difficult especially from the car park and by the station. Take... More

This place is perfect for activity at open air: photo, walking, or if you have a dog you can make nice meeting. It takes around 30 minutes to complete a sector, no coffee places available. Provide with water hot season.

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.
