    Beautiful square with character
    This beautiful little square is full of charm, good atmosphere, beautiful covered staircase and nice palace facade. Access to this place means making a pleasant discovery. With a beautiful and rich history. Piazza Municipale was once the former court of honour of the Ducal Palace that is dominated by the magnificent Scalone d’Onore (stairway of honour) built by Pietro Benvenuto degli Ordini. These steps blend the Gothic Medieval elements like the Venetian style marble banisters with other obviously Renaissance style elements like the arches and the dome. The wing alongside the stairway presents elegant marble windows that denote the position of the living quarters of many Duchesses from the past and the most famous of whom was no doubt Lucrezia Borgia. We have now witnessed a cheese fair that Ferrara is well known for.

  • Affascinante angolo della città
    Quello che un tempo era il cortile di palazzo Ducale oggi è una bella piazza cittadina. L'architettura che non passa inosservata è fuor di dubbio il pregevole Scalone d'Onore, che si trova subito alla destra entrando dal Volto del Cavallo. Passeggiando per le vie del centro è pressoché impossibile non visitare questa piazza.

    Ideale se si vuole passeggiare in tutta tranquillità. Ci sono dei bar che danno la possibilità di bersi un aperitivo nei tavolini fuori ad ammirare lo splendore della piazza.

Worth checking out the sala della duchessa in this building - its a working office building so make sure you check timings.
