“A beautiful street”
Review of Via delle Volte

We cycled up (and down) this street - our bikes mostly managed on the cobbles! Owing to the town's excellent limitations on car traffic we could admire the street in all its calm beauty. Rosetti, Ferrara's great architect and town planner really understood the importance of creating a pleasing (and uplifting) street environment and townscape for the people to enjoy. The buildings, their arrangement, with trees and green spaces peeping through at intervals combine to make the street totally 'easy on the eye'. Modern day architects and town planners could learn a lot from Rosetti's principles.

It's like to jump in the Medioeval Time thank's to the Onces that charactherized this road. It's one of the Most Ancient Medioeval road in Europe. Warmly Suggested for Art and Architecture Lovers.

Assolutamente da vedere grazie alle sue volte Medioevali che la caratterizzano: è come fare un salto nel passato.

Assolutamente da vedere per chi ama non solo l'arte ma anche l'architettura tipico del medioevo.

If you're in Ferrara you can't miss this tiny street. This is one of the most beautiful parts of this town. This street was there ten centuries ago and it still is untouched. Walking the original pavement under the arches built of red brick you can feel the atmosphere of old times. Bicycles and small restaurants make it even more beautiful.

A picturesque street that gives a wonderful impression of how it must have been in mediaeval times, and merchants' houses on one side were linked to their warehouses and showrooms on the other. Probably an occasion to bring out your cameras.
