Escape to a characterful, historic gem in the Renaissance city of Ferrara, with breakfast, welcome coffee and late check out, plus a suite option

  • The medieval marvel that is Ferrera is a culture-rich Renaissance gem, with Principessa Leonora a historic treasure in its own right. This 16th-century palazzo is packed with antique furniture and dripping in original features like wood-beamed ceilings, tapestries and marble passageways, with a truly frozen-in-time feel.

  • After being greeted with a welcome coffee that is up there with Italy’s finest, amble to your room or the exclusive suite, where you can expect a spacious feel, antique furniture and oodles of old world charm. Stroll to a sister hotel nearby for your buffet breakfast feast, which has received rave reviews from former guests.

  • After discovering must-see wonders such as Ferrara’s signature building – a huge castle complete with moat positioned slap-bang in the city centre – you can reflect on the day’s adventures back in the hotel’s peaceful patio garden, surrounded by trees and flowers.

  • Once the domain of the powerful Este clan (rivals to Florence's famous Medici family) who blessed the city with its grand castle – Ferrara suffered damage during World War II, but its historic core (packed with cycle-friendly streets and ancient palazzi) remains intact. Of particular interest is the former Jewish ghetto, the region's largest and oldest, whose heyday was from 1627 until 1859. If you favour Mediterranean restaurants, the hotel is handily located near Apelle, Hostaria Savonarola and Lemoko.
