The apartment backs onto a very quiet courtyard so there is no noise from traffic. Apartment is well furnished - good quality bed and sofabed, and with its high ceilings has a nice atmosphere. Our only criticism is that the apartment is described as two bedroom, it is not - it has one large bedroom (with air conditioning) and one room that combines living room, kitchen and a sofabed (without air conditioning). This may not be too problematic as the sofabed is comfortable and there is a toilet adjacent to the room with the sofabed (the bedroom has an en suite bathroom). It worked out fine for us as we all had the same sleeping times but could be a problem for some groups. We enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it.

                                                                                                    5 of 5
                                                                                                    This newly renovated upstairs apartment is located withing minutes walking distance of the beautiful historic centre of Ferrara. The apartment is quiet despite my concerns as the local restaurants are not particularly noisy and with limited traffic there is no traffic noise. The owner provided bikes but we took our own and that gave us the possibility to cycle freely around, its a bike friendly city. There is off road storage. The apartment has one bedroom, a large room with a large double bed and plenty of storage space the second bed is a fold out sofa bed next to the stairs which means children should be in the bedroom rather than sofa bed in the lounge/2nd bedroom. The ideal solution would have been a child size bed in the bedroom then we could have all slept in the bedroom together. The kitchen has everything you need, it lacked some steak knives but when advised the owner was going to put them in. The good sized balcony looks a nice place for a drink or dinner but in our case the weather was against us. You can not park outside the apartment so should consider carefully if you are not very mobile as the closest parking areas are at least 250m and usually a lot further as spaces are at a premium, even in April/May but we found Via Scandiana to be the best solution to find a space but it often took several circuits. The owner does provide a 15 minute parking permit from picking up and dropping off luggage and/or people. All in all a great place, a great location and a great city to visit....recommended!
