  • Ferrara is a fantastic city, rich in culture, history, monuments to visit and we must not forget the excellent Emilian cuisine; in fact the Emilian gastronomy is famous for lasagna, cappellacci and cappelletti (you absolutely must try the pumpkin Cappellacci, they are excellent). Since my husband and I visited it 3 years ago, it was love at first sight. When we organize a trip to Veneto, we will return to visit it very willingly (and bordering on the Veneto, the short and pleasant trip). I mention some monuments that I recommend everyone to visit and that I liked a lot: in the center of Piazza Savonarola, there is the STATUE OF SAVONAROLA, very suggestive; opposite, under the arcades, there is a restaurant that offers excellent local dishes "Hostaria il Savonarola"; on the other side of the square there is the imposing CASTELLO DEGLI ESTE surrounded by a moat full of water, you can enter it by crossing a drawbridge; let's not forget the romantic style CATHEDRAL OF FERRARA entirely covered with white marble (unfortunately we could not enter because it was being renovated), this cathedral is located in the historic center, in PIAZZA DELLE ERBE where the LOGGIA DEI MERCANTI, the CAMPANILE, the former CHURCH OF SAN ROMANO which has now become a museum; while in Piazza Ariostea there is the STATUE OF ARIOSTO; but there is much more to visit. My only advice is ASAP YOU CAN GO TO VISIT THIS BEAUTIFUL CITY AND ENJOY IT.
