About us

Welcome to La Scarana!

Dear guest,

I am Marjan, I started this adventure inspired by the beauty of Ferrara and all its mysteries.

Moreover, with nearly 15 years of experience in combating dust mite allergy and not finding comfortable accommodation during our travels, we decided to open our own accommodation with special furnishing criteria and a careful cleaning regime. All our guests should enjoy their stay.

We are located in the historic centre at the heart of Ferrara, just 2 minutes from the Estense Castle, the Town Hall, the Cathedral and the main museums. La Scarana is a lovely two-room apartment situated on the first floor of a historic building with original beamed ceilings. We have combined the modern style with the "Barocchetto" style, playing with the imagination and colours of a distant time. The "master" of the living room is the fireplace from the 18th century where we have set up a library that will be continuously updated.

The apartment is close to a variety of facilities. The "old market”, with fresh fruit and vegetables, is just a stone's throw away. You can walk around the historic centre with all the tourist attractions or hop on your bicycle (available in the apartment) for a 9 km tour on the ancient city walls that surround the historic centre. We are located in a pedestrian area, just one minute away from Via Boccacanale di Santo Stefano, an area that hosts many restaurants, inns with traditional cuisine, bars and cafe’s, as well as various shops (pharmacy, tobacconist, newsagent, grocery store, bookstore and minimarket). We are waiting for you!
