The best things to do in Ferrara



Ferrara
is a city in Italy. Its urban structure dates back to the 14th century. One of the most interesting things to see in Ferrara are its 9 kilometers of ancient walls, which were mostly built in the 15th and 16th centuries. Among the many other places to visit in Ferrara are its palaces, churches, and museums. Most of the palaces in the city were built in the early Renaissance, for example, the Palazzo dei Diamanti ("Palace of Diamonds"), so named for its
diamond-shaped

which are blocks of stone cut into the facade. At present, it houses the National Gallery. The collection of paintings highlight the Ferrara style of painting, which reached its prestige in the second half of the 15th century. Another one of the many attractions in Ferrara is the Teatro Comunale, which was built between 1786 and 1797 and has a capacity for 990 people.
