Ferrara & Bologna - 5 days

Jump to last reply

After much deliberation we have decided to spend 5 days visiting Ferrara and Bologna while traveling from Venice to Rome by train. We are thinking of spending 3 nights in Ferrara (Venice to Ferrara is 1.5 hours by train) and 2 nights in Bologna (Ferrara to Bologna 30 minutes and Bologna to Rome about 2.5 hours) so the route seems ideal. But we would appreciate any comments on our plans. We do not want to take day trips to Ravenna, Parma or elsewhere, even though they have their own appeal. We are particularly interested in the Este castle and bicycling in Ferrara but beyond that we know little about both places and how to allocate our time. Suggestions?

By the way, we previously posted questions about a side trip to Sorrento between Venice and Rome, and we decided the itinerary made no sense, but we appreciated everyone’s answers and intend to use them for a future trip. Thanks for those responses.
