The city's history is long and fascinating, and elements of its past can be seen throughout Ferrara through its classical architecture through the ages. There is also plenty to do here. Regardless of your interests, there will be something to keep you entertained. Ferrara holiday homes will provide homely comfort, but with so much to be enjoyed in the city, you won't be staying inside for long! So culturally significant is Ferrara that it has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
Things to do and see as part of your stay in a Ferrara holiday letting
Archictercural wonders can be found all over Ferrara. It is still largely surrounded by walls built in the 15th century. These Renaissance walls are impressive achievements of old design. There are a number of Renaissance Palaces here, each one of them is marvellously decorated, aesthetically pleasing both from the exterior and on the inside. Castle Estense is an iconic symbol of the city. This 14th century building is surrounded by a moat, which only serves to add to its beauty. For the chance to get closer to nature without leaving the city, the university of Ferrera Botanic Garden is highly recommended. The Museo Archeologico Nazionale should also be on the itinerary. Ferrara has a long and strong Jewish history. To find out more about the culture of the Jewish community in the days of old, as well as the suffering brought about by World War 2, the Museo Nazionale dell'Ebraismo Italiano e della Shoah is a small but fascinating insight into a largely lost but not forgotten world. These are just a few of very many things you could do whilst renting Ferrara holiday accommodation. Naturally there are scores of bars, restaurants and cafes, as well as any other amenities you can think of to keep you entertained during the evening as well as the day. There's something for everyone in Ferrara.
