Discover all the secrets and the most fascinating monuments around one of the most important medieval cities in Italy when you take this guided tour of Ferrara.
Ferrara Guided Tour
We'll meet up in the heart of the city to start our guided visit around the beautiful city of Ferrara.
First, we will walk to Cathedral Square, where we will admire some of the most important monuments of the city, such as the spectacular Cathedral of Saint George the Martyr (San Giorgio Martire) and the City Hall. You will hear more about the history of the city and the House of Este, one of the most influential families in Ferrara during the Middle Ages.
Continuing with the medieval theme, we head into the historic quarter of the city by walking along the Via delle Volte, one of the most picturesque and famous streets of Ferrara. Passing under the beautiful ancient arches we will arrive at the treasure of Ferrara: Este Castle. Here, you will gaze in wonder at the majestic architecture of this fort and its moat, which have been conserved exactly as they were centuries ago.
Later, we will continue our guided tour by walking to the Palazzo dei Diamanti (Palace of Diamonds), whose name will make complete sense when you set eyes on its spectacular exterior decoration. Our guided tour of Ferrara finally concludes at this point in the city.
