Ferrara is a city in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, at the top of Italy's boot and not far from the eastern Adriatic coast. It is on UNESCO's World Heritage list. For three centuries the town was ruled by the Este family, whose Renaissance court was among the finest in Italy, attracting artists and writers like Ludovico Ariosto, author of Orlando Furioso.
The town is still enclosed within its 6-mile-long defensive wall, which makes a good cycle route or walk, with grassy parks outside. Not all of the city within the walls is of similar antiquity; if you enter along the wide Viale Cavour you will wonder where the historic buildings are, until you take a side-turning and find yourself in the city's network of medieval and Renaissance streets.
Ferrara is a medieval city (similar to Siena probably in terms of architecture / landscape) and is located about 44km from Bologna and 87km from Venice. It is close to the Lidi Ferraresi sea-site (c.50km away) and c.150km from the Dolomites mountains (2 hours by car). It is also located c.70km away from the Delta del Po regional natural park.
Ferrara is easy to reach from international locations through the Bologna International Airport. Bologna is also Italy's main train hub, with the most advanced high-speed train station of the whole Country. From Ferrara, you can get to Bologna via train or car and, from there, you can get to Milan in 1h, to Rome in 2h, to Florence in 30 minutes through a high-speed train (just to mention a couple). These high-speed train are quite cheap, but you can also of course use the normal speed trains (even cheaper).
The flat is located at the second floor of an historical building in the city center and the price we would be asking is of €440,000.
