What to visit in Ferrara
? The Estense Castle is the symbol of the city, it rises imposingly in the historic center of Ferrara: it is one of the rare examples of a castle with a watered lake still visible today in Italy. Its construction began in 1385 and today it is brick-colored, with four large towers on either side. The visit begins by crossing the drawbridges and, once inside, you can visit the prisons and the large frescoed rooms, used for games and court enjoyment. (Ticket cost 12 €)
⛪ The Cathedral dedicated to San Giorgio is the most important religious site in Ferrara. It is located in Piazza delle Erbe (today Trento and Trieste) in front of the Town Hall and not far from the Estense Castle. The white marble façade with the beautiful porch (portico) immediately strikes the eye.
Via delle Volte, before the course of the Po was diverted, this beautiful medieval street had a commercial function. Here were the houses of the traders who traded with the rest of Italy across the river. The vaults, the arched passages still visible today, made it possible to quickly reach the warehouses on the river without having to travel all the way and without being attacked.
Piazza del Municipio, with the imposing Staircase of Honor that led to the first residence of the Este family. Next to the Staircase, the marble windows of the apartment where Lucrezia Borgia lived and Federico da Montefeltro, Duke of Urbino and famous leader, died.
