    written walls

    The thing that impressed me really much are the written walls that I saw down in the dungeons of the castle. Prisonners were used to leave a trace of their lifes, writing something on the walls. If you have time to read some words in latin, you will find a sentence written in 1597. Impressive!

    Don't forget to buy a ticket to go to the top of Torre dei leoni (Lyon's Tower). This special tower give you the chance to see ferrara from a very high point of you. The ticket costs 1 euro and you can buy it while you are buying tickets for Museum.

    Monument ?

    by prleprle Written Feb 25, 2003

    On our way from railway station to town centre we found this interesting monument, made few pictures, walk around but couldn't find what's that really. I check later in some guides of Ferrara and... couldn't find. Could somebody tell me what's that?

    Palazzo del Monte di Piet��

    In front of the north side of the Castello Estense you can see this nice palace built by Agapito Poggi between 1756-1761. Very interesting is the marble gateway.
