Discover Ferrara's UNESCO-listed city center on a private tour with an expert guide! Admire the city's top sights and learn Ferrara's history while enjoying a pleasant stroll through the historic center.
Meet your guide in Piazza Savonarola, by the namesake statue, and begin your tour through the city's historic center, full of lively shops and streets. The first stop of your tour will be the Estense Castle, the city's most representative landmark. This Medieval castle was a political and military center as well as the home of the Este family. Learn about the castle's structure, architecture, and history.
Continue visiting Ferrara's Jewish ghetto, one of the most ancient areas of the city. The ghetto was closed from 1627 to 1796 and then again in 1826, even if with less rigid rules, until the unification of Italy in 1861. The district has largely retained its original structure and character. Lastly, reach Corso Ercole I d´Este, the city's main Renaissance street that starts from the Castle and stretches through the whole city ending at the city walls.
