nice walk along the old walls

This is an excellent hike under the trees on top of the centuries-old walls, giving a sense of the town's history There is also a bike path running along, for a faster view.

At one point the wall just stopped and I found it difficult to find the start again. Better signposting would help.

We visited Ferrara on a Sunday, which was great as it was fairly quiet (unless you want shops which are mostly closed) and had a fantastic cycle ride along the famous old walls of the city. It was an extremely hot day, 38 degrees, and amazingly it was quite cool and breezy cycling along as a large part of the... More

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
