Capital of the Ferrara province, the city of Ferrara has a population of around 130,000 people. Once a center of chemical engineering, Ferrara has lost most of its heavy industry and relies increasingly on tourism to support its economy. Luckily, the town has been recognized as UNESCO World Heritage site, so it gets its share of visitors. Around 230,000 people visit the city each year, and it's a number the city is keen to increase.
The main draw of Ferrara is its historic charm. This city goes back a long way. In fact, the area has been populated since at least the 6th century BC, and was once the site of an important Etruscan town. Ferrara became part of the Roman Empire and later was conquered by Lombards and Franks. The Frankish rulers gifted the town to the Pope, but by the 12th century it was a free city. Ferrara was fought over by the famous Guelph and Ghibelline families that controlled much of central and northern Italy, but ended up in the hands of the House of Este. This family ruled the city from 1264 until 1598.
Ferrara then became ruled by the papacy again and remained part of the papal states until the unification of Italy in 1861. The fascist regime which replaced the Italian monarchy built a plant intended to produce synthetic rubber in Ferrara, and as a result, the city was bombed by the Allies during World War II. Luckily, many of the historic Renaissance building survived and give Ferrara its unique charm today.
Ferrara's location in the Northeast of Italy makes it a popular day trip from better-known cities such as Bologna and even Venice. But there's plenty to do in this smaller town. And perhaps best of all, Ferrara is relatively undiscovered. You can enjoy what it has to offer without the huge crowds you'll find in better-known Italian cities.
Explore the home of Ferrara’s ruling family at the Castle Estense. This dramatic castle rises directly out of an artificial lake and has been the center of power in the city since the 14th century.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
