Ferrara

Sightseeing Historic Sites Museums

Heart of the Italian Renaissance

With surrounding medieval walls and network of 15th- and 16th-century architecture, the city of Ferrara is often deemed the Heart of the Italian Renaissance. The impressive, moat-encircled Castello Estense that anchors the city's historic center is popular attraction, as are the many Renaissance palaces. While Ferrara retains its historical charm, it also offers the lively urban atmosphere of a modern city. Venture into the countryside to explore the stately homes and rural villages of the lush river valley. Make your own Ferrara vacation itinerary, with a little help from those that know the place like the back of their hands, by using our Italy itinerary planner.
