This is a remarkable residence dating from the 16th century the frescoes are extraordinary and the rooms are full of fantastic antique furniture. You can imagine what it would have been like to live here. I loved it. Don't miss it.

This Palazzo has some ceiling paintings including one outside the main building that mimics a vegetal cover. Some period furniture is unfortunately now covered by insipid modern"art works". Altogether not compelling

Interesting so called "small palace" in Ferrara but nice and it gives a good idea of how the richer people lived in that period.

This palace is another 'delizia' a bit out of the route, but well worth a visit. It is all on one floor, with 6 beautiful rooms, one into another, with frescoes, wooden ceilings, pictures and period furniture that recreate a wonderful Renaissance feeling. You can...More
