Via delle Volte, Ferrara

(3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
In the heart of the medieval center of Ferrara, explore the cobbled alleyways surrounding Via delle Volte to step back in time to the Middle Ages. Pass under the numerous vaulted archways and walkways that give the street its name, or duck off the main drag to explore on your own. Imagine the workshops and merchant stalls that used to line the way and take the opportunity to snap some photos. The street runs parallel to the bustling main street of the city, which is accessible through many side streets. A visit to Via delle Volte represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Ferrara tour planner to plot your vacation.

  • For those looking for an Italy that was, this is the best place for aesthetics, colors and flavors. Very nice and "personal" although sometimes a little busy.

  • A way that stirs emotions and atmospheres of yesteryear. Don't you realize you're in town as this street is shrouded in silence perhaps embellish with a few flowers in the spring and summer seasons, at least in the windowsills.

  • Come not with high heels, the pebbles on the ground would have reason to your shoes. A few passages at the level of the first floor are communicate some houses facing each other. Two small restaurants have the coquetry of flowers and a nice decoration that goes so well with the austerity of the scene. The middle age is here in the city.

  • Fantastic risotto with truffel... Lots of truffel! :-) It would have been 5 stars if it had been a little less salty.
  • Never again!!!!! Day 4 January at lunch: two people, with plenty of tables still empty, we sat down and ordered EXACTLY a starter first and second. The appetizer came after 52 minutes. Here, after another 20 minutes the other two dishes. The ravioli were not cooked well having hard parts. I'm very reasonable so I waited very patiently but seeing the spread of the wait time and my great hunger become exhausted and the calm away, interest in the quality of the food is diminished. One waitress, who while seeing the inconvenience created if one is infischiata highly of us and this huge waiting time. He just stretched in firm but another basket of bread ... two couples fares to oil for other little people!!. The price: too high for three dishes you order! € 50! Attention ... read the menu because at the beginning and at the end it says,, between the lines, that the waiting time will be ups, highest I would say! And with this, the managers themselves safe from these horrible and endless waiting. The long wait I was indisposed to the dishes, however, none of that! Never again!!!

  • Great food and very particular, very honest. Exceptional cappellacci di zucca sauce and the latter very ornate. Don't leave without eating dessert.

  • Help Two hours for a plate of noodles, too hard and glued together at their ends rude staff that after an hour and a half of waiting, we said that for the first it will take a while, given the large amount of people ... Pity that three quarters of the tables were empty prices are also slightly taller than the other restaurants highly discouraged
