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.

  • Nice place where to run and walk in freedom. Even at hours later with serenity. You can see beautiful glimpses of the city. It is a meeting point for runners and anyone who wants to do some movement in ferrara. Walking there is the large urban park and are easily accessible from the Centre. After a visit to palazzo diamonds have some movement on the walls doesn't hurt.
