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. Plan a Ferrara trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • Relaxing walk or run along the walls of Ferrara. In spring you create a great atmosphere. Clean air and out city smog.

  • It was a foggy day with snow, ice and puddles and pretty cold. Abbiiano still toured kungo.

  • Whether for fitness or for a simple walk, the walls are spot on. A peaceful view of the city from the top of an ancient city. The meeting point of those who live in Ferrara "outdoor".
