It is huge and at the same time, it is charming and beautiful, sadly like many other historical buildings in Italy it is undergoing restoration which spoils your visit, but needless to say, you never find this out until you arrive there, but nevertheless, still...More

Although the frontage is covered in scaffolding and netting the interior is of great interest. The inside is huge with a number of small to medium side chapels. There is the opportunity for 1 Euro to listen to a presentation about the history of the...More

The Cathedral is the monument I liked most in Ferrara. Besides of being huge, it´s incredibly beautiful. Shame that, due to restoration works, important parts of its main facade were covered in scaffolding, but anyway there´s much left to enjoy. It looks as if it...More

The stunning interior of this ancient cathedral has witnessed many historic events in the life of Ferrara and the Este family. No visit to the city would be complete with looking inside

The moment the whole Cathedral is shrouded as they undertake restoration work. Don't let this stop you, go inside and look at the vast space and the wonderful treasures inside

You would never guess that cute, unassuming Ferrara would have such an ostentatious cathedral but this is pretty awesome in a rather gaudy way. It's dark and bit macabre, very ornate and over-the-top like it's the love child of Donald Trump and Liberace. It may...More
