The ancient palaces, the beautiful Este Castle, the roads and squares of Ferrara, are still the same as in the Renaissance period, all year round.

This unique City Centre, listed in the UNESCO Heritage, goes back to its most authentic atmosphere during the Carnival, for a great celebration of the Este period.
