Bike Tour of Ferrara

  • 20 reviews | 173 travellers
    Very engaging, fun and well structured experience. The ride is not physically demanding, allows for wider coverage of the city and allows greater freedom of movement. The guide, Mr. Giuseppe turned out to be a very prepared, courteous and helpful person. He immediately created an empathetic relationship with the boys, resulting in his presentation being pleasant. Highly recommended.

Description

We'll depart from Piazza Castello at the indicated time, 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'll admire its Romanesque façade covered in intricate engravings. Simply by turning around, we'll find ourselves in front of the City Hall where we'll 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 that runs through the medieval heart of the city. As we pass under its beautiful old arches you'll 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'll pause here to enjoy the exterior of this building which consists of 8,500 marble blocks carved into the shape of diamonds.

Finally, we'll end the tour after 2 hours of biking.
