Full description
Ferrara is a splendid city of art, ideal to be enjoyed walking through its streets and discovering its Renaissance character, revealed on every corner. The famous Este family governed here for three centuries and gave the city the appearance it has today: a uniquely planned city, which harmoniously fuses the mediaeval and Renaissance styles and represents Europe's first modern city. Thanks to these characteristics, Ferrara gained its UNESCO World Heritage status. Through this guided walking tour led by your private guide, you'll get to see the main and most important sites in town, like the famous Este Castle (the castle of the historic Este family), Piazza Savonarola, Palazzo Arcivescovile, the harmonious Romanesque and Gothic Cathedral of Ferrara, Palazzo Marchionale, the particular Jewish ghetto (the region's largest and oldest, which prevailed from 1627 until 1859) and Via delle Volte.  Get ready to take great pictures of this hidden Italian gem.
