A Unesco World Heritage site, the city built around a striking fortified castle, is rich in palaces and works of art commissioned by the Este family. From the Renaissance district to the former ghetto, its lively historic centre is a pleasure to explore along straight roads lined in red-brick houses, austere palaces and mysterious squares that inspired the metaphysical art of De Chirico and Carrà. The Pô delta's lagoons lie on the doorstep of the city.
