Ferrara province has several historic cities near the northeastern coast of Italy. Its namesake is the capital city, containing many palaces, churches and castles. After exploring its Old Town, travel to the various communes for a slower pace of life amid quaint landmarks.

Among the highlights of the province is the capital’s historic center, full of impressive structures. Visit the Este Castle to learn about the noble family that once lived here. Take a guided tour of the medieval building to see its moat, fountain, towers and themed rooms. Delve into the dungeons and towers.

Admire the Renaissance design of the Palazzo dei Diamanti. Enter the impressive structure to see the National Art Gallery of Ferrara. Marvel at the unusual design of the Cathedral of Ferrara, which dates back to the 12th century. Pass through the grand portal and gaze up at the enormous nave area.

Rent a car to travel around the province’s various towns, such as Sant’Agostino and Vigarano Mainarda. Ride a boat along Comacchio’s canals. The town is famous for the 17th-century Trepponti Bridge.

The province’s eastern side offers different scenery, within Po Delta Park. Admire the salt marshes and the range of wildlife, including flamingoes and osprey. Learn about the traditions of eel fishing.

Medieval customs and Jewish traditions in the town of Ferrara have influenced culinary tastes. Try the cappellacci di zucca, similar to ravioli, with butternut squash, cheese and nutmeg. Popular seafood includes stewed eel.
