"Visit Ferrara. There are many..." Italy Favorite Tip by lengyelp

Italy General: 753 reviews and 735 photos

Favorite thing: Visit Ferrara. There are many things to see, the Este Castle, old houses, walls, etc. But it is even better if you just put away the guidebook, and just walk in the streets where you like. The best thing in Ferrara is its atmosphere. They say that in a beautiful place people become better. Maybe... But what about Lucrezia Borgia? As far as I know she lived in Ferrara, too.
By the way, you can see the statue of Savonarola, who was from Ferrara, in front of the Este Castle. I think, it is the only statue of him in Italy. But maybe there will be more, as I heard that the Church is considering making him a saint (after it burned him).
