In need of restoration
Nov 2017 • Couples
This is a desolate spot, badly in need of renovation, or even having the grass cut.
Poorly signposted,

Spacious cemetery with beautiful grounds
Apr 2017 • Couples
We really enjoyed this visit. It's important to visit sites of Jewish interest I think and we weren't disappointed.

A peaceful and enchanting place
Oct 2016 • Family
This is one of my favorite places in my hometown. Ferrara's past is linked to its Jewish community. I advise you to take a walk in the former Jewish ghetto and then walk till the cemetery which is a peaceful garden with very old and more recent graves. The cemetery is bordering the Catholic cemetery, within the walls of Ferrara.

very interesting to see the cemetery and local history. No tours and caretaker did not speak English. We were glad we found this gem.

Magic place

Take your time to visit this wonderful place. The past of the jewish community must have been fascinating. On the end you will find Bassanis grave.

A Must for Readers of Bassani
Apr 2016 • Couples
If you are a reader of the novels of Giorgio Bassani, which if you are visiting Ferrara you should be, then this is a place of pilgrimage. His grave is here but it is also a beautiful green peaceful place.

An oasis
This is a beautiful corner of the city , an oasis of peace and quiet full of wild flowers. Thank goodness that no one has 'tidied' it up. We went to find Bassani's grave which is in the NE corner and is something of a modern horror!

Shame on the Jewish Community and the City of Ferrara-Cemetery grossly neglected!
Jul 2013 • Friends
Considering this is not only a Jewish burial ground but a place of great historic interest in the history of Ferrara-the condition of the cemetery is horrific! This historical site is listed in all tourist guides of the city as a city's landmark.
The graves and the tombstones are in a total state of disrepair and careless abandonment. The grass was over half meter tall, secular trees had fallen both on the pathways and the tombs themselves. I had the feeling that war had finished the day before.
I am well aware that a year ago Ferrara has suffered a major earthquake which probably has worsen the conditions of this site. But something so simple as cutting grass, removing big fallen trees and maintaining the tombstones should be a priority.
To whoever is responsible for this absolute disrespectful neglect i suggest removing this cemetery site from 'must see places' in Ferrara. Until you address the unforgivable state of this historic religious site.

Part of Ferrara's history
Apr 2013 • Couples
A secluded cemetery, filled with lots of history, hidden behind tall walls, lots of beautiful trees but unfortunately, a bit unkempt.
