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. To visit Le Mura and get the most from your holiday in Ferrara, create itinerary details personal to you using our Ferrara vacation trip planner.

  • Came here for a stroll on a Saturday afternoon. Nice footpath and cycle route. Also ideal for dogs.

  • These beautiful walls encircle the ancient Ferrara in all directions and create a view of charm, as if they tightened a bouquet of medieval houses, surrounded by green meadows and trails. Very impressive
