It is so nice to be able to wander around a art museum away from the crowds,( which is what you get in Florence, Venice and Rome). Some good pieces of work by Italian and Flemish masters. Free with MYFE card

Truly, a very interesting collection (including an extraordinary Crucifixion in the style of Cosimo Tura)

Yes, it is an important renaissance building and yes, it looks nice from the outside, especially considering when it was built. If you are in Ferrara, you will see it anyway, if you are not, it is not something worth travelling for.

The Palazzo dei Diamanti, built in 1492, is famous for its unique façade to "spearhead". Today it houses the National Art Gallery, with works by major artists from Ferrara. Learn all about the Monuments and Historic Buildings Ferrara.

Suggestive and impressive at the same time. This palace is characteristic for his little "diamonds" attached on the walls, whom can be seen from the outside. This renaissance building is suitable for history lovers, worth a visit!

A masterpiece of renaissance architecture, it houses the Ferrara Art museum. As this is Italy, there's Madonnas, Jesuses and Saints galore. And frescoes. It's still worthwhile to visit though...

I went to see De Chirico's exhibition. It was overwhelming . Well organized with not only Chirico, but several his contemporary painters.
