The flat is very clean comfortable all mod cons, spacious and luxurious. Full of light and tranquil as it looks out onto a lovely garden with a 200 year old plane tree, and lots of birds, you can visit and sit in the garden. The flat couldn't be more central, just a few steps from the Duomo and castle. There is a supermarket across the road and the amazing Slurp pizzeria next door - best pizza I've ever had anywhere! Don't miss the Palazzo Schifanoia with it's amazing fresco of the months - a real gem. If you like Greek vases you can't miss the archeological museum, world class collection.

Tastefully decorated ,spotless & furnished to a very high standard with all the facilities anyone requires. The balcony/patio area is perfect for chilling out after a hard days sightseeing. Enrico was the perfect host - always available to answer our queries & offer help & advice when we had a parking issue with the local constabulary! On that note driving & parking in Ferrara can be a bit stressful for the tourist therefore when we return it will be by public transport! The apartment is within walking distance for everything Ferrara has to offer - especially at night - very atmospheric. Would definitely stay here again. Grazie Enrico.

The property is very central for all the main sights of Ferrara. Everything that we needed was provided and the owners were on hand if we wanted advice. We would certainly recommend the property to friends and family.
