We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this historic (1450's) home, shared with owner as a wonderful vacation rental. To call it a B&B is misleading. We had use of the kitchen and living room downstairs, and had a very spacious bedroom, sitting area and bathroom upstairs. The owner, Anna Maria, was wonderful. She provided the ingredients, (eggs, hams, cheese, yogurt, fruits, breads, pastries) and we made breakfast, how and when we wanted. She bake a delicious apple struedel, and also provided the very unique Ferranese bread for us to try. She had restaurant and must-see site info, plus plenty of maps and books about Ferrara and the surrounding areas. We communicate well, although she apologized for her "not so good" English, it was far better than my meager Italian. She had a google translation app on her phone that we made good use of! Her home as spotless, full of artwork and antiques that added to it's character. It also had, according to my husband, "the most comfortable bed in Italy". I agree. Ferrara is a great small city, and Anna Maria's Belfiore B&B is a wonderful home base for your explorations. One of our all-time favorites.
