A guided tour of the Schifanoia Museum takes visitors on a tour of one of the Este's most evocative residences, one of those palaces where boredom was shunned, where the Dukes of Ferrara entertained themselves surrounded by dignitaries and courtiers. 

An extraordinary example of the magnificence of the Renaissance, Palazzo Schifanoia is the symbol in Ferrara of the Este family. The preferred residence of Duke Borso, among its fifteenth-century rooms one can take a journey through time ranging from the age of Borso and Hercules I, to the figure of the refined Prince Leonello, to the sixteenth-century magnificence of Alfonso I, culminating in the splendid Salone dei Mesi, one of the most important fresco cycles of the fifteenth century in Italy, enhanced to the utmost by a new and carefully designed lighting system.
