FAQs about hotels in Ferrara

A Renaissance Rival to Florence

Ferrara was a haven for the arts during the Renaissance and much of this is still evident today. The powerful Este family held court in the multi-turreted Estense Castle, protected by a moat and drawbridge, and they were illustrious patrons of artists and authors.

Bellini, Piero della Francesca and Titian all perfected their strokes here, and the university houses parts of Ludovico Ariosto’s original manuscript of his epic poem – Orlando Furioso – containing allegorical references to his sponsors. The family is also depicted in Palazzo Schifanoia’s detailed fresoces, and the Palazzo dei Diamanti gallery displays works commissioned from the School of Ferrara.

Some Este tombs are in Corpus Domini Monastery and another is in the ornate cathedral whose three-gabled façade overlooks the crenellated town hall. Both line Piazza di Trento e Trieste, the main square where locals come to socialise. Another popular square is green Piazza Ariostea.

The Este strengthened their position through marriage alliances with the influential Borgia, Medici and Gonzaga families, but they didn’t have it all their own way. Ferrara’s well-preserved city walls were built for defence, and ardent opponent of the Renaissance, Savonarola, was born in this UNESCO World Heritage city.

Surrounding cobbled streets house many luxury Ferrara hotels, cheap apartments and B&Bs near the train station, available on Booking.com.

    Ferrara is a small city, but with a lot of history, especially the building's from the Este family. We spent three nights there, and enjoyed our time in the city, and the restaurants we used, but we felt three days was enough.

    A small compact old city that was easy to get around.

    A small compact old city that was easy to get around. We enjoyed a range of activities including the archaeological museum, Palazzo Schifanoia, Palazzo dei Diamonti, the Castle and the Cathedral among other sites. Easy to get around on foot. Lots of places to eat. The train station is off to the site of the old town. Easy train access to other major cities as it is on the main route to Venice. Also local trains to Ravenna.

    I wasn't planning a stay in Ferrara, but I was towed to the town after my car broke down. This was the closest hotel to where I was left by the tow truck, so booked in. The staff were amazing. Really helpful and way more help than my insurance company! The room was comfortable and the breakfast great. I have a pretty low opinion of Italian hotels, but this one is really good, especially for the money.

    This is a nice hotel at a good location, with very friendly staff. It is possible to park right at the hotel entrance for a short time while checking in and out. Our room was quite large and quiet, facing the courtyard. During our two-week stay in Italy, breakfast here was far the most abundant and manifold with a very wide selection of food and drinks.

    The hotel is very cozy, the room is spacious and super comfortable. It is 100 m from the train station and about 15-10 min walk from the center. They offer a sweet/salty breakfast with everything handmade, and they recommend typical sweets from Ferrara or Italy. The owners are very nice and very attentive at all times.
