Despite being beautiful, Ferrara isn't often the most known tourist city in Northern Italy. It's a typical Emilia Romagna's city, with very picturesque cobblestone streets and a medieval structure that is still standing like the old days. In fact, the city hasn't expanded a lot outside the city walls, hence why it is mainly contained in the original medieval walls. Ferrara isn't very big and it can be seen in a day, but if you really want to experience it fully, it'll be best to stop at least for two to three days.
All the main attractions are at walkable distance or as an another option bikes can be rented. Most of the locals (including elderly people) use bicycles as main way of transportation. There are many churches to see, with the Duomo being the most dominant of all; it is a very beautiful architectonic building with its Gothic white facade and is definitely a must-see together with the stunning Estense Castle that's not too far.
Ferrara is a quiet city, ideal for family trips with children but also for young people; in fact, there are many things to do at night. During the summer/autumn seasons there are plenty of events and festivals held in Ferrara; the young crowd hangs out in some squares or some bars enjoying the "aperitivo" Italian style.
