Bike Tour of Ferrara

  • 12 reviews | 111 travellers
    Our guide, Clara, if I remember correctly was very good and very kind. The tour itself is a bit expensive, but the money is well worth it. I would have said excellent without a shadow of a doubt if it weren't for the fact that the tour time was changed 2 days earlier from morning to afternoon. In our case it was not a problem because we easily modified our programs, but maybe someone else might not be able to do it.

Bike Tour of Ferrara

We will depart from the meeting point at 9:30 am or 5 pm, depending on your selection, to start our exploration of Ferrara. This ancient city seems to have been taken straight out of a fairy-tale. Our first stop will be at the river Po, which is the soul of the city.

We continue at the Ferrara Cathedral of Saint George the Martyr (Cattedrale di San Giorgio Martire), where we will admire its Romanesque façade covered in intricate engravings. Simply by turning around, we will find ourselves in front of the City Hall where we will learn all about the history of the most influential family in the city – the Este dynasty.

Later, we head into the narrow alleyways of the Jewish quarter to find out what links this community to the House of Este. Then we walk down the Via delle Volte, a street which runs through the medieval heart of the city. As we pass under its beautiful old arches you will hear all about the fascinating history of this magical part of Ferrara.

An obligatory stop on our tour is the majestic Este Castle, which stands out for its four defensive towers and the water moat which surrounds it. This is a genuine medieval fort right in the centre of the city!

We continue the tour at the popular Diamanti Palace, one of the most important constructions from the Italian Renaissance. We will pause here to enjoy the exterior of this building which consists of 8500 marble blocks carved into the shape of diamonds.

The tour ends around 12:30 am or 7:30 pm, depending on the start time.
