Welcome to Ferrara

Castello full view 

 

Ferrara greets you with its rather special and peculiar atmosphere, a mix of colours: the green of its parks and secret inner city gardens, the red of the bricks of the walls that surround the town for 9 km, the intense blue of the sky on a spring day, or the soft white mist during a winter day.

Try to visualise yourself walking in front of a perfectly preserved medieval castle, the Castello Estense, whose moat is still filled with water, a sumptuous Cathedral, a harmonious mix of gothic and Romanesque style, wandering in the Jewish ghetto or cycling through the wide streets planned during the Renaissance that earned Ferrara recognition as the first modern city in Europe.

" have come to better understand Italy through the rhythm of everyday life. The melody of the language, the clink of coffee cups in the bar, the day interactions between neighbours, the leisurely pace of a long lunch..."
