Botanical Garden

The greenhouses and flowerbeds of the University of Ferrara’s Botanical Garden covers 4,500 sq. metres of the garden of Palazzo Turchi-Di Bagno

Urban Park G. Bassani

The territory of Barco is located between the city and the river Po. It was one of the Este's game reserves, related to the famous "Delizia di Belfiore", within the walls of the city, and so devoted to the entertainment and amusement of a refined and cultivated court.

Parco Massari

The park takes its name from the adjoining palace, which was built at the end of the XVIth. Century, and which has the biggest public gardens within the city walls, covering an area of about 4 hectares.

Parco Pareschi

This was originally the garden of the Estense Palace, the park owes its name to the Pareschi, who bought the palace in the middle of the XIXth century, and replanted its garden, by then converted into allotments, in the "English" fashion.
