What to expect

Discover the main attractions of Ferrara, the magnificent Renaissance city declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco, on this walking tour led by an experienced guide.

Ferrara reached its peak in importance and richness during the Renaissance under the control of the Este family, who turned the city into a lively cultural and artistic center. Yet, Ferrara's great and long cultural season started with the foundation of the university, in the 14th century, followed by a crescendo of splendor that still mesmerizes its visitors.

This tour through the city center will take you to the main highlights of Ferrara: from the imposing Cathedral of San Giorgio, with its richly decorated façade, and the nearby town hall, Palazzo Municipale, the seat of the Estensi court, your will get to the narrow streets of the former Jewish Ghetto.

You will also stroll under the arches of Via delle Volte, a highlight of the ancient medieval center of the city. Another one is Castello Estense, Ferrara’s fortress, a perfectly preserved castle with its intact moat.

Finally, you will jump forward in time and reach the famous Renaissance-style Palazzo dei Diamanti, whose name comes from its amazingly rich façade composed of 8000 pyramidal stones, a unique feature that will remain engraved in your memories forever.
