Porta Paola is the very first historic sight of Ferrara I've seen entering to the town. I stop my car at Piazza Travaglio, right behind the Porta and just a foot from my hotel.
The gateway was built in the 17th century and is followed by a section of the walls distinguished by its mighty bastions (baluardi) each in the form of the ace of spades.

Address: Piazza Travaglio

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
