Ferrara, earth and water

Photos alone aren't enough to capture the atmosphere of Ferrara.The best way to savour its beauty is to stroll or pedal around, and believe us – at the end of the day, aching though your feet may be, your eyes will still be asking for more! If you don’t believe us, take it from Unesco: the entire area enclosed by the city walls is on the World Heritage list. The Po delta, too, is really spectacular. There is no other place like this in Europe - a maze of ancient lagoons and floodplains, where seawater mingles with the river Po and tiny islands rise to the surface in lace-like formations. If you want to make the most of this extraordinary place, hire a bike, pedal leisurely along one of the cycle paths running along the river bank and strike up a conversation with one of the many other cycling tourists you will meet on the way.
