What to expect

Meet your guide at Ferrara train station, where you will hop on your colorful bike and start the tour of the amazing Unesco Heritage Site of Ferrara.

Your tour starts with a magical view of the river Po, on whose banks the city rose and developed. You will then ride towards the incredible Cathedral of San Giorgio with its Romanesque and richly engraved façade, which stands right in front of the Town Council. Here you will get to know the fascinating history of the Este family, who paved the way to the Renaissance in Emilia.

Explore the narrow alleys of the former Jewish Ghetto, a community embraced and protected by the Estensi. After the inspiring Via delle Volte, the ancient medieval center of the city with its archways and pebbles, a stop at the Estense Castle is mandatory: admire the extraordinary fortress that stands in the city center still surrounded by its moat!

Pedaling around this amazing medieval city you will also reach the famous Palazzo dei Diamanti, which takes its name from the over 8000 pyramid-shaped stones of its facade and will remain engraved in your memories forever.
