Ferrara's center is very well preserved. Here are the imposing cathedral and the exceptionally well-preserved medieval castle. There are also some very authentic streets left in the Middle Ages.

Lovely compact old town centre. No wonder it is a World Heritage Site. Lots of quality buildings and narrow cobbled streets to see while people go about their everyday life. Well worth the short train trip from Bologna.
