Ferrara, Province of Ferrara, Italy
Strolling Ferrara's Via delle VolteVia delle Volte slices through Ferrara's medieval center, beckoning travelers to lose themselves for a few minutes or hours. The cobblestoned street-- one of the oldest and best preserved in Europe-- runs straight and narrow, parallel to the Po River.
Once a hotspot for Ferrara's brothels, today Via delle Volte is a living artifact, punctuated by silence and a series of archways. Let your feet and imagination wander.
