Myself, wife and niece had always stayed in hotels previously and were a little apprehensive.... We had no cause to worry. It was a really great apartment in a recently renovated historic building. Furnishing and layout were tastefully done. The apartment is quiet but centrally placed. Wi-Fi was a bonus.
We fell in love with Ferrara. It is a pedestrian and bike friendly town. There are many places to visit in Ferrara and it is easy and reasonably cheap to use the train to reach Ravenna,Bologna and Venice. In fact it would be better to stay in Gloria's apartment and visit Venice as a day trip. So pleasant to come back to a real Italian town without masses of overseas tourists!
Gloria was there to greet us and hand over the key and everything was catered for in the apartment. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment is very secure.
