?The prime Hotel Europa erected by Signa family gave hospitality in 1861 to the future Kings of Italy and Spain, Umberto the First and Amedeo di Savoia; in 1866 to Prince Jérôme Napoléon Bonaparte and in may 1872 to the Prince of Italian Harmony, Giuseppe Verdi.? Taken from an authoritative historical work. In Ferrara Hotel Europa is located in an old palace in the heart of the Estensi city. The 1944 bombardment damaged irreparably just some frescoed ceilings; others kept miraculously intact. In the last years Hotel Europa has been completely restored and equipped with the most up-to-date comforts, without giving up its old style and own tradition. You can breathe the allure of the distinguished past of this mansion in the rooms that face the main street of the city and in the completely frescoed drawing-room suite where you can admire some precious paintings; among them the picture of Napoléon and Joséphine, that is said to be the Emperor?s gift to the owner to thank him for the hospitality. You can visit the frescoed drawing-room and read the famous signature register; the original signatures of the renowned guests who stayed in Hotel Europa.
