Information about Ferrara
Ferrara was an important medieval centre and one of the most opulent courts of the Renaissance. It is from there that its totally distinctive characteristics come: from the harmonious and inimitable sum of the tangle of shaded and irregular streets in its medieval quarters and the airy, luminous and geometric spaces of the Renaissance age. All this full of splendid palaces, houses, churches, squares, streets, gardens and works of art conserved in its innumerable museums that constitute one of its greatest attractions.
That's why Ferrara, as the city of the Renaissance, and its Po Delta has been entered by UNESCO in the World Heritage List.
Ferrara is a silent city, on a human scale, where you can stroll on foot or pedal slowly on a bicycle, at any hour of the day or night, without any fear, reliving the magic atmosphere of the past with each step.
Ferrara is one of the most important centres of artistic and cultural interest in Italy, thanks, in the first place, to the Diamond Palace, seat of prestigious exhibitions and to the top quality seasons of its Municipal Theatre.
Ferrara is the seat of historically reminiscent events of great appeal such as the Palio di San Giorgio, the oldest in Italy, an annual appointment that lets you relive unique and unrepeatable magic and emotions and the Ferrara Buskers Festival, in which street musicians from all over the world come together in the city in a very special musical happening.
