“Atmospheric street with archways”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This is a very quaint and picturesque street which gives an idea of what Ferrara must have been like in the medieval and renaissance periods. However, if you are already familiar with the characteristic narrow streets of the typical Italian city, and have only a few hours in Ferrara, there are more important things to see.

“A beautiful street”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

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.

“Nice-Bella”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

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.

“Medioeval street just as it was”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

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.
