The Palazzo dei Diamanti (Diamond Palace) has an extensive collection of beautiful paintings. I'd recommend visiting AFTER touring the Castello Estense, (Este Castle) as some of the artwork referenced in the castle history is actually hanging in the Palazzo dei Diamanti. The museum offers audio tours, just give your identification to the attendant as collateral. I found the museum to be a wonderful representation of the art of Ferrara, but as you will learn from the Castello Estense tour, many of the fine art that used to be in the area is now scattered across the globe, some lost forever. The palace itself is absolutely amazing, and I recommend viewing it at night, as well. It is a stunning piece of architecture. The museum will host a collection from such masters as Modigliani, Picasso, and Dali from September 11, 2011 through January 8, 2012.

The front sides of the palace are entirely covered with pyramidal diamond shapes made of marble. Amazing!
Palazzo Prosperi-Sacrati is just opposite.
The Castle is just up the road.
Palazzo Massari and Parco Massari are round the corner. Piazza Ariostea is only few meters after.
The Certosa (monumental cemetery) is a short walk away.
