“Astonishing national gallery”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I liked the collection of precious paintings, gathering some masterpieces of the most important painters from the Ferrara school (Gentile da Fabriano, Cosmé Tura, Bastianino, and so on). The price of the entrance ticket is really acceptable (€ 3, if I am not wrong) and visitors are provided for free with audioguides. Clean toilets and snack machines in the green, nice courtyard make the visit even more confortable. Finally, the bugnato of the external walls are special and fascinating. Please, after the visit, spend your time in Massari's Park!

“Great art gallery”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

I have been to Ferrara several times to see exhibitions at the Palazzo dei Diamanti and they have nearly always lived up to my expectations or even better. Keep up the good work!

“If you like old paintings”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

A big old palace with large rooms, lots of frescos and lots of paintings. A liitle pity that most frescos are covered with pieces of thin paper to cover the bursts in the walls.
