Ferrara is a splendid city of art, to be enjoyed by walking its streets, its character - this magnificent Renaissance capital - revealed on every corner. Through its glorious past you can understand the roots of its present. It's a peaceful city to wander on foot or by bike, every step re-living the magical atmospheres of the past. You shouldn't leave without having walked around the atmospheric mediaeval streets and taken a bike ride round its Renaissance city walls, which remain nearly complete. The city walls are the locals' preferred 'park' for jogging: you can run along an almost uninterrupted 9 km of earthwork between the green of the lime and plane trees and the red brick of the wall. For those who prefer cycling, the best is the circuit around the bottom of the walls, and this can be extended onto the “Destra Po” cycle track by crossing the Urban Park to the north of the city.
