Great houses/palaces to walk through to the Diamond Palace. Worth the stroll. Pak at the end around the corner.

A delight, with the impressive palazzi to begin with, then taking on a remarkably rural aspect. Impressionist painters would have felt very much at home. Having savoured the sights, then turn along the Viale Certosa, to find more peace at the cemetery.

This street was designed by the Dukes of Este to locate the various noble houses. Some of them have been converted into art galleries and offices. The Law School of the University of Ferrara is one of these and worth a glance.

I highly recommend strolling around this historic thoroughfare if you are an architecture fan. It spreads from the Castello up to the San Cristoforo Charterhouse, in the north limit of the city. Planned as an expansion for the old city, it provides a fine example of Renaissance architecture, as this cobbled street designed in straight lines is linked by some beautiful palaces. To name one, Palazzo dei Diamanti is really remarkable, and to those visitors coming from Salamanca or Lisbon will remind other similar palaces in those cities. Shame it was closed that day, so I could see the interesting museum inside. Some other of the palaces were closed too or are currently used as public offices so, in some cases you can only enjoy their façades. It´s a nice walk -maybe half one hour or so- until you get to the Charterhouse and its quiet gardens.

As the "new road" built in the early baroque period as an addition to the medieval city I was expecting it to be a grand boulevard, whereas it's quite a narrow, but elegant, cobbled street. It is bounded by some super renaissance buildings (some of them grand palazzi). The medieval Castello of the Estes is at one end, and it's about a 10 minute walk up to the Diamanti Art Gallery, and the Risorgimento Museum at the other To be fair, the street continues much further but I never got that far!

If you are a walker or a jogger Corso Ecole 1 d'Este is worthwhile because you can link it as a very useful and attractive part of your other activities in this fabulous city. It takes 20-30 minutes to walk this road which goes from the Castello Estense to the Porta degli Angeli that was a gate in the city wall on the northern side of the old town.
Along the Corso one passes quite a few historic buildings including the Palazzo dei Diamanti, that houses the very worthwhile Art Gallery. Next door is the Museum of the Resistance and Risorgimento, containing many interesting artifacts and descriptions of World War 2, and the unification of Italy led by Garibaldi in 1870.
Crossing Corso Biaggio Rosetti one passes the headquarters of the Polizia Stradale, and a section of the university before encountering houses, both smaller 2 story and larger single story houses set in their gardens behind stone walls. If you are heading from the centre of the city towards the walls, on the right at the end of the Viale Certosa one can glimpse the buildings of the city cemetery, that is also worth a visit.
At the end of the Corso you find the 'Angel's Gate'. The wall has a broad walking / jogging track in both directions, and it is worth following one's map to re-enter the historic centre at other points in your adventures in Ferrara.

Corso Ercole I d'Este is the long street that connects the Massari Park to the Estense Castle, there are few noteworthy buildings present as well as activities. It is above all a logistical point of reference.
