The city is strewn  with beautiful buildings, houses, churches, squares, streets, gardens and works of art housed in the numerous museums, which are one of its principal attractions.  Ferrara is a quiet city, safe and  people-friendly, where you can easily walk or ride your bike both day and night, reliving the magical atmosphere of bygone days .  It  is one of Italy’s principal cities of art and culture, thanks  to its ‘Diamond Palace’, home to prestigious exhibitions,  as well as the high quality productions at  the City Theater.  Ferrara is also home to acclaimed historical events, such as the Palio of San Giorgio – the oldest in Italy – and the Estense Renaissance Carnival; musical events such as the Ferarra Buskers’ Festival and ‘Ferrara Under the Stars’; a huge hot air balloon fair, Ferrara Balloons Festival and important educational and cultural events, including  the International Festival of Scientific Journalism.
