The space

The building dates back to the Middle Ages. As you can see in the photos, we wanted to keep some details although may perhaps appear "sloppy" to someone . The frescoes date back to before 1920, the wooden inlays of the windows are of considerable value, and we prefer scratched wooden "Venetian" shutters to current plastic ones.

Guest access

As you can see from the map (photo 10), guests will have to their disposition an apartment with an entrance, a living room with kitchenette, a bedroom and a bathroom.

Interaction with guests

I am studying for a second PhD in medieval history, and I would be glad to show you the most interesting streets, monuments, churches and buildings. It depends on the time you have, but I would love to teach you typical (and easy) recipes of Ferrara: passatelle, or brazadela...

The neighbourhood

The neighborhood is FANTASTIC! There's absolutely ALL. The Public Library (with Renaissance Frescoes) is in front of the apartment. On the corner there is a very very good restaurant-pizzeria. On the corner after the Restaurant, a marvellous pastry shop. A supermarket, a newsstand, a flower shop, a tapas restaurant are just a minute walking. The Cathedral, the Castle are just few minutes walking distance.

Getting around

The apartment is 6 minutes walking from the Corso Porta Reno stop of the buses n. 3 and 6 (beginning their routes at railway station).
Ferrara is really near to Venice, to Milan, to Rome, to Florence... You can use the apartment as a base and reach for a day other more busy and expensive italian cities.

Other things to note

- The apartment is on the second floor.
- There isn't a lift but a hoist; it works in a strange way (I 'call' you from up or down, then the hoist moves up or down).
In the apartment, you can find the basics for a light breakfast:
Instant coffee and real Italian coffee (normal and decaf)
Sugar and sweetener
Milk (in the fridge)
Corn flakes
- If you have a bike, you can put it in the courtyard.

I had a great stay at Beatrice's place. It's very comfortable, central, spacious, well-equipped. She was also kind enough to make me breakfast every day :)

Beatrice is the perfect hostess. Very flexival in the management of the booking. Although I arrive late, she was waiting for me to find a place to park, something very helpfull in an unknown city. Her cookies and cakes for the breakfast are delicious. Beatrice, grazie mille per tutto

Beatrices appartment has been recommended to us by friends and it actually exceeded our expectations. The apparment appears to be bigger than the inserted pictures would suggest, it is absolutely clean and tidy and clearly satisfied all our needs. It's located close to the centro as well as several bars, cafés and ristorantes. However there is no need to go far for a good breakfast, as Beatrices hand-made cookies are delicious - and they never lasted long;-)

Beatrice User ProfileBeatrice is a superhost.

Sono nata a Ferrara, la conosco abbastanza bene (perlomeno il centro!) e amo il suo mix di eleganza rinascimentale e sonnolenza di provincia. Mio marito e io lavoriamo in ambito umanistico: lui insegna all'università, io sto svolgendo il mio secondo dottorato. Abbiamo due bambini un po' tremendi e amiamo molto gli animali: abbiamo una gatta ex randagia e una cavia attempata.
