Le Mura, Ferrara

(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Built in a triangular shape with sentry towers around the old city's center, Le Mura is standing strong to this day. The ramparts and thick walls are built to resist gunfire. They're topped with turrets where sharp shooters once watched for enemy armies. Inside, paved pathways travel around manicured lawns and the stone foundations of the former town. Enter the fortress using the same gateways that visitors used in the Renaissance: Port of Paola, Port of Angels, or San Giovanni's Port.

  • An integral part of the city, for Ferrara is a relief valve, used for walking, running and cycling (like all Fares). The greenery surrounding the city

  • Walk along the walls of Ferrara gives a rare treat. At any time of year and at any time of day take on different colours and sounds that soothe and open the heart. Walk with the fog that envelops all or at sunset with the different shades of red has no equal

  • Come to Ferrara and not go round the walls means losing a gem really beautiful ... Is the great day of spring sunshine, but this place Fares should continue to love him and treat him as wonderful, natural museum to live and abide by.
