Walking back from the Palazzina Marfisa D'Este we chose to avoid the (somewhat noisy) main street and instead came back via the back streets boardering the other side of the University buildings. This lead us to the delightful Via delle Volte - which is surprisingly...More

If you enjoy photography, you will enjoy walking along the historic Via delle Volte - an ancient cobblestone lane which crosses under a number of covered walkways. Beware of the cobblestones - the street is uneven and will penalize the inattentive.

Via della volte is a small old town street in beautiful Ferrara. The arches covering the via make street look authentic. The street if photogenic at night when the lights are on. It is worthwhile to walk through the street since a few very nice...More
