Guided tour of Ferrara

Galerie Photos


Departure by coach from Polesella with your guide for Ferrara, which is about 5 km from the Po river in the eastern part of the Italian plain.
Ferrara is famous for being the seat of the archbishopric and its small university. The town was also the residence of the Este dynasty as well as a flourishing trading town. You can still appreciate the city's past glory by its wide streets and impressive Renaissance palaces.
Our tour will take you through the town's medieval streets. You will visit the old Jewish ghetto, the Cathedral with its stunning Romanesque facade and the Castello Estense (exterior only), built during the Renaissance and whose four towers dominate the town center. Return to the coach for a panoramic tour which will allow you to admire the Palazzo dei Diamanti, the Piazza Ariostea and the Palazzo Schifanoia (exterior only).
Then, enjoy some free time before returning to the boat at Polesella.
