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.

  • If you're visiting Ferrara I suggest you find some time to take a walk on the walls. The best place to see them in my opinion is from the "Hangman's House" that is, from the intersection of Via Rampari di Belfiore and Corso Ercole d'Este near the First shooting. A green lung trying to oxygenate the dank Ferrara, quiet place where the fares are running and other sports. If you have a dog bring him in the large under walls, a large green space that runs around the North East side.
