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.

  • Walking along the narrow streets of the oldest part of Ferrara is very relaxing, especially in the morning. It's even better on the bike, it seems like it is the preferred choice here.
  • You can feel the cold of the dark ages at this street!
