What can you say about Ferrara except that is a stunning and beautiful place to spend time and has excellent rail and road links? After all, it is a World Heritage City. This bed and breakfast is unusual and unique. A mix of old and new gives it that. It's perfect in terms of detail, comfort, organisation and staff. The owner is attentive and extremely helpful, when we wanted a taxi to the station he insisted that his mother drive us there. How nice. Lovely room, high ceilings and wooden beams, good air con, fridge, large bed- beautiful bathroom facilities. Free wifi works well- choose Alchimia 3 as it is the strongest signal. There is a garden where you can sit and relax and where we parked the car, and a supply of bicycles for those who choose to cycle around Ferrara. Now the breakfast room is an "add on" and lovely, but don't sit next to the window as the sun gets up about 8:30 and it's too hot! Now this is a breakfast to remember, different home made stuff like pies and cakes every day. Eggs made to order. Very nice fresh fruit and drinks- no stale stuff. A wonderful way to start the day. Recommendations for restaurants are given plus discounts and there is plenty of choice in the city, in the centre and near the bed and breakfast itself. You are in a street adjacent to brilliant places such as the grand cemetery, Diamond Palace and Resistance Museum and a ten minute walk to the heart of the city. You can spend days here just wandering and enjoying. The Buskers Festival was on during our visit- very good but crowded so do go in earlier to see things and to get a table in a restaurant. Venice is only just over an hour away on a train and you also have great choice of other places for day visits- Bologna, Modena etc. I have stayed in many bed and breakfasts and hotels across the world, this is easily in my top five! Thank you Euro and family.
All rooms are on the ground floor in a quiet street so you can't go wrong!
