    In the center of old Ferrara you will find this beautiful castle. I don't remember the name, so Asli and Lorenzo, please don't get mad at me, but write and let me know the name ^L^
    The city of Ferrara is completly enclosed even today by large walls of earthen works and brick that we will take a bike ride around when we visit Alsi and Lorenzo next time.

Ferrara Restaurants

  • Have a "small" pizza at Marechiaro...

    The restaurant was a very quiet place and the only things you could hear was our laughter as we shared a lunch with friends.Lorenzo insisted that this was the best place he knows of for Pizza. I don't know if he was correct, but the pizza was great. The prices ranged between 4.5 Euro to 6 Euro. First of all you have a list several pages long to...

  • Pasta Dishes at Ai Tri Scali

    Okay, so we came to visit Asli and Lorenzo in Italy, so we DON'T eat Italian. Alsi and Lorenzo said we would enjoy the Italian dishes here and they were right. Aside from their excellent company, we did enjoy the dishes. Each of us tried a different dish and we tasted all of them. First of all the dishes are sufficient to provide a full meal, not...

Ferrara Local Customs

    by Martin_S. Updated Nov 7, 2003

    Asli and Tal have a custom that they started it is called "Feeding Pigeons In The Park" (or road, or square, or restaurant, or church, or wherever), in other words they will feed pigeons wherever they find them. I think that these two have "animal magnetism" so that wherever we go all the animals in the neighbour hood are "attracted" to them. The pigeons sure seem to know when that special team of Asli and Tal show up, the "flock" to the spot, the word was spread all over Italy by courier pigeon.......

  • Old Ferrara - city hall window detail

    Even on such a simple thing as a window or door you can see the detail. Each door has its own arch first of bricks and then four rows of detailed carving... But here the windows look as if they were added later, there are elements that seem to be cut off which is usually a sure sign of a change in the structure.

  • Old Ferrara - city hall

    This beautiful building is today the city hall where couples get married. Our friends Lorenzo and Asli just last month got married there. In the far distance you can see the arched gate that guarded entrance into the old city.
