It is easy to walk around, and a must see while in town. The museum seen closed, as we passed by, but you can cross the bridge and walk around in the yard. I would recommend to walk/pass by while in town.

Nice castle in the centre of town, surrounded by water gives feeling of 16-17th century. there are shops and restaurants in some parts of this castle.

My absolute favorite part of visiting Ferrara! I have a passion for history and this place just took my breath away! I highly recommend taking the lion tower tour as the view from above of the city is well worth it!

Staff need better training in personal skills, there were so many obstacles to navigate to the point our visit was spoilt. Yes indeed a very spectacular building with lots of good history and interesting artifacts to see but all was a bit edgey.
