Make a holiday villa in Ferrara City your home away from home

Ferrara is the capital of the Italian province of the same name, an ancient walled city situated a few kilometres south of the Po River.  For its network of Renaissance and medieval lanes, alleys and buildings, Ferrara is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is filled with palaces built during the 14th and 15th centuries, as well as an imposing castle and well-preserved cobblestone streets. The city is also close to the beaches of the eastern Adriatic coast, less than an hour’s drive away.

Proximity to these ancient buildings is one of the main reasons tourists choose from HomeAway’s range of Ferrara holiday apartments.  Many of these well-appointed rentals are housed in historic buildings with period features.  Situated in or around the city centre, they are close to the main attractions and come with balconies or terraces and modern conveniences such as air conditioning, dishwashers and coffeemakers.  Holiday villas in Ferrara also benefit from these creature comforts, and are suitable for couples, large families and groups.  If more historic architecture's on the cards, consider a visit to the ancient town of Modena less than 60 kilometres from Ferrara, where HomeAway also has an array of holiday rentals.

Things to do

-Outdoor activities: Most of the city is enclosed by nine kilometres of thick defensive walls.  These were constructed during the 15th and 16th centuries.  Running alongside the walls are good cycling and walking paths.  A walk round the ancient streets is always an enjoyable experience as is sipping an espresso in a café lining one of the many piazzas.

-Historic monuments:  There are historic sights a plenty in Ferrara. In the city centre is the 14th-century Castle of Este, a four-towered moated defensive structure.  Inside are many frescoes that date back to the 16th century, and the castle’s roof gardens are a popular hangout.  Other notable sights include the ancient cathedral and the domed church of San Francesco.

-Museums:  Ferrara’s impressive history can not only be seen in its buildings but also in the numerous museums.  The Cathedral Museum houses many sculptures and paintings and the Archaeological Museum displays relics from the Greek-Etruscan necropolis of Spina, near Comacchio.  Inside the Boldini Museum, guests will discover numerous artistic works by Ferrara’s painters.

-Food and drink:  There are many restaurants and bars dotted all over the city.  One of the most pleasant aspects of staying in Ferrara holiday apartments is to be able to slip out and dine in one of the local eateries.  On the menus are good, hearty pizza and pasta dishes with some regional variations.

-Events:  In common with many Italian towns and cities there are numerous festivals throughout the year.  A popular Ferrara event is the annual Festival dei Buskers at the end of August, during which the streets are filled with buskers.  May sees a Palio, a horseback contest between Ferrara’s different districts.

Lift available if you don't want to carry the heavy luggage. Private parking. Books, guides, maps, pictures - on your table in the apartment. We loved it!

                                                            Appartamento molto carino, piacevole e spazioso a due passi da Ferrara. Molto consigliato per rimanere a contatto con la natura e lontani dallo stress senza privarsi della comodità di avere il centro storico a pochi minuti di macchina. Il personale cordiale e premuroso ha reso il nostro breve soggiorno alquanto piacevole. Sicuramente una sistemazione che consiglio vivamente!!
