    Stop At: Castello Estense, Largo Castello 1, 44121, Ferrara Italy

    As the history of Ferrara is intricately linked to the d'Este family, who ruled the city for three centuries, your expert guide will begin the private tour with an introduction to the magnificent Castello Estense (Estense Castle). Built in 1385 by Niccolò II d’Este, as defenses for himself and his family against a dangerous revolt, the Castle still retains the original moat that entirely surrounds the complex, drawbridges, and the massive towers at its four corners. From here you gain an understanding of its rich history, before moving on to explore the city.

    Dating back to the 12th century, the different styles of the Cathedral bear witness to the historical periods of the city. Take in its stunning elaborate three-tiered facade in Romanesque and Gothic styles while your guide unveils the details of this pure architectural beauty.
