If you enjoy photography, you will enjoy walking along the historic Via delle Volte - an ancient cobblestone lane which crosses under a number of covered walkways. Beware of the cobblestones - the street is uneven and will penalize the inattentive.

This area probably gives a greater insight to life in old Ferrara than many of the more glamorous areas. It is very worthwhile taking a slow walk through to absorb the atmosphere and to think back in time and what this area may have seen.

I had no idea this street was a tourist attraction of any sort. Just liked the view and took a picture. There are other spots like this one in the area

Takes you back in time. I met friendly people on my wandering as was invited into a graduation party... Well worth the journey. Ferrara is a beautiful medieval city well worth a visit.

Loved the Via delle Volte for it's apparently unchanged appearance. Quiet and cool to walk down when we visited. Gives a real feel of times gone by.

Interesting getting away from busy town life and wandering the back streets in the older part of town. Lots of brink and a sense of time. You can almost feel the resistance operatives of World War II running down the streets and disappearing into the...More
