    Ferrara

    July 14 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    Von Monselice sind wir Richtung Süden zum Po Radweg aufgebrochen. Der Wind war gegen uns aber da Sonntag war konnten wir ohne viel Verkehr über die Landstraßen rasen und die Aussicht auf Pistazien Eis bei der Gelateria Romana in Ferrara hat uns motiviert. Ferrara ist eine sehr schöne Stadt mit schönen Gässchen und vielen schönen Häusern.
    Von Ferrara sind wir dem Po Radweg in Richtung Campingplatz in Stellata gefolgt. Das waren gleichzeitig unsere ersten Kilometer auf dem EuroVelo 8!!!
    Der Campingplatz ist sehr zu empfehlen: kleiner familiärer Platz mit Swimmingpool, Bar, freundlichem Service und es war sehr günstig.

    Day 324: Ferrara

    January 4, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Next up on the day-trip list is Ferrara, to the north-east of Bologna. Up and out at much the same time, on the train by 9:30 and arriving in Ferrara around 10am.

    This is one of those frustratingly vague world heritage sites, where it's lauded for "Renaissance town planning", but then many of the landmarks are pre-Renaissance. We had a look at the ruling family's palace, which was actually more of a castle complete with moat and drawbridges (they were justifiably paranoid after a revolt caused several gruesome deaths), then had a look at the central squares, the usual churches and town hall landmarks.

    The last part was the Renaissance town planning, which included long wide straight streets, leading to pleasing visual aspects. Not the most exciting subject for a video! But we did our best. Had lunch at a nice little cafe, where I had a couple of small focaccias and Shandos had a panini.

    Back to Bologna by 2pm where we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and doing a bit of planning for upcoming weeks. Went out for dinner in the evening without Schnitzel, and headed to a semi-fancy place we'd seen the other night. Lashed out on a typical Italian meal of pasta course, meat course, dessert course and a bottle of red wine. Food was fantastic - I had a similar pasta dish to the tagliatelle al ragu, and then beef cheeks in red wine sauce. Delicious!

    Leaving Bologna tomorrow!

    Castello Estense

    September 29, 2018 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

    Einen schönen Überblick über Fererra bekommt man vom Lions Tower des Castello Estense. Man muss zwar den Eintritt für die gesamte Burg zahlen aber das ist die Sache wert, da das Castello an sich auch sehr sehenswert ist.
