The Via delle Volte is a charming cobbled street in Ferrara that dates back to the Middle Ages. Named after the distinctive volte, also known as the arches or covered passages that cover this street, the volte has become a symbol of the historical legacy of Ferrara.

The street gives a feeling of walking through the past with its hanging passageways (the air passages) which used to join the warehouses of the tradesmen on the banks of the river to the historic-housing towards the center. The picturesque Via delle Volte has also recently been refurbished with rustic river rocks as cobblestones that create an ambience of mystery and intrigue suited to a medieval city.

A great way to see the quaint buildings belonging from the 14th and 15th centuries, a walk along the Via delle Volte is picturesque with great opportunities to capture some beautiful photographs. You can also take a break and just grab a bite to eat from the charming bars and restaurants that line the street. The road runs parallel to the more urban and busy Via the Ripagrande and Via Carlo Mayr, which can be accessed by tiny and narrow passages which connect them.

  • Petite rue typique de Ferrare avec ses maisons en briques. .. Il y reigne un calm absolu

  • Tante volte... Da quando tantissimi anni fa ho svolto il servizio militare a Ferrara ogni volta che torno in questa città devo fare almeno un breve giro in questo luogo così caratteristico. L'ho visto col sole e con la nebbia, di giorno e di sera ed ogni volta è un piccolo, rinnovato piacere.

  • Luogo di un fascino incredibile sia di giorno che di sera

  • Uno dei luoghi più romantici della Ferrara medievale. Un lungo rettilineo lastricato che passa sotto edifici antichi. Molti invitanti locali caratteristici. Dopo una visita alla cattedrale è un must.
