This is a beautiful city, great for meandering around the small streets. for the first time we did not find the red bus very good so recommend a walking tour instead. The food was tremendous. Slight irritations of the city are the amount of graffiti around the city and the unwanted attentions of a number of beggars on the streets....

We had three nights here and it was perfect. We called from the airport and they were waiting with the key. They also looked after our cases on the last day and ordered a taxi and so there was no issue with there being no reception. The apartment was immaculate, I can't fault it in any way apart from perhaps...

We stayed for 3 nights in an apartment. Well appointed, complete with a moka and ground coffee. Caffè e latte with panettone for breakfast each morning. Yum. Close to all the beautiful sites, plenty of bars and restaurants around too. About a 15 min walk from the train station. More than happy to recommend.

We (family of 8) stayed at Residenza Ariosto earlier this month in three of the apartments (1 studio and two 2 bed apartments) and were really pleased. Big beds, massive apartments, lots of towels / home comforts (kettle, hob, loo rolls, etc) and a great location too. Only thing to keep in mind is that where the floors are solid...
