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

We were staying in Bologna and debated between taking train to Lucca or Ferrara to bicycle. We have been to Lucca in the past and loved it. We were told, and had read, that Ferrara was pretty much the same so we chose to train to Ferrara since it was closer. We had a fine time in Ferrara and would... More

We took complimentary bicycles from the hotel and explored several lovely streets and the travelled along the bicycle path around part of the walls and partly used the path on the top of the walls. Everyone (young and old) seems to cycle in Ferrara and this trip enabled us to enjoy peacefully the wonderful green spaces and trees that exist... More

During our stay in Ferrara, we hired bikes and went to around the wall according to our guidebook. We were amazed at the intact parts of the wall standing as if built recently. It's both inspiring and healthy to bike around it. We will definitely return there.

My daughter and I walked on foot only partly walls. Best by bicycle, this time we did not. How was the first May, everything was green, a true paradise to enjoy. We could see on all sides because of Ferrara is located in the valley. We saw a water tower, a factory chimney. Walls and everything that reminds me of... More

The mura serves all, wether you want to walk, jog, ride a bike or walk your dog. Flat terrain, well maintained and easy to navigate. Great way to meet locals, of which many (unfortunately for me) speak little or no english.

Great idea for a spring bike ride, or summer picnic. Not touristy at all and very impressive piece of architecture
