Ferrara Greeters
‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎‎Free Personal Walking Tour with a Local

Discover Ferrara on a free private walking tour with a local

Ferrara was for centuries the capital of the Duchy of Ferrara, Modena and Reggio. Rich in monuments and works of art, the city offers tourists an itinerary full of history connected to the River Po and the Dukes of the Este family. On foot or by bicycle you can see the Castle of the Este Family, the Cathedral, the Duke’s Palace and you can get lost in the narrow streets of the Jewish Ghetto looking for the remains of its history from the times of the dukes to the present day. In addition to the historic center, Ferrara offers a unique historical monument of its kind, a fortified wall that surrounds the city for 11 km and which can be traveled on foot or by bicycle, completing the knowledge of the city and the splendor of the Este Dukes over the centuries. Finally, you cannot leave Ferrara without tasting the pumpkin cappellacci, the salama da sugo, the tenerina … and take home not only the cultural memory but also the gastronomic one!

Now you can meet a Greeter and go for a walk around town with him and talk about social and cultural life as you would with a new friend. In fact, the Greeter is not a tour guide but simply a local person who loves Ferrara. Each walk, completely free, is for a single booking (maximum 6 people) and depends on the availability of a volunteer.

Remember: A Greet means meeting a local resident to walk around town with you as new friends. The first step will be to talk to the Greeter about the details of your personalized tour. It is not about participating in a standardized tour, but about exploring the city with an experienced volunteer.
