Explore Ferrara’s Renaissance art, stately palaces and comforting cuisine with a relaxing stay in the heart of the city – breakfast, dining discounts and local wine included


Often likened to Florence without the crowds, Ferrara is a Renaissance pearl in the foodie region of Emilia-Romagna, blissfully devoid of tourists. Just 25 minutes from Bologna and an hour from Venice, the city is often overlooked in favour of its more famous neighbours, but those who visit are in for a pleasant surprise. There’s much to explore: medieval walls, grand castles, rambling palaces and museums full of Renaissance art – it's no wonder the ancient centre has been assigned World Heritage Status by UNESCO.

Sitting at the heart of all this Renessaince grandeur is Hotel Ferrara, a pad first opened in the 1920s and now with 60 rooms. Guestrooms have been recently refurbished and are decorated in a modern style, with polished wood floors, velvet chairs and abstract art. Some rooms have original features like wood beamed ceilings, and bathrooms are spacious and modern. Both Classic Double and Superior rooms offer views of the castle, while the Superior room offers more space and a seating area with sofa.

Chef Diego Bruni devises his menus for Big Night Ristorante based on three principles: Mediterranean and Ferrara traditions, top-quality local produce and modern cooking techniques. Food is largely influenced by the Med and interspersed with local specialities from around Emilia-Romagna, and accompanied by wines from the well-stocked cellar. The dining room is an elegant space with tiled floors and colourful art on the walls. Breakfast is made up of fruit juices, yoghurts, bread, eggs and bacon, and cakes, all presented with views overlooking the castle.


You’re in the heart of Renaissance Ferrara in Italy’s Emilia-Romagna, famous for its comforting food – you’ll never go hungry here. From its setting opposite the Castello Estense, the hotel is walkable to many of Ferrara’s sights such as the Romanesque cathedral and palazzo museum. Bologna is 25 minutes away by train.
