"Since the early nineteenth century Florence has been celebrated by many as the most beautiful city in Italy", says Rough Guides. Discover its charms for yourself from the fashion-forward UNA Hotel Vittoria in the trendy San Frediano district, a 30-minute walk across the River Arno from the marble-clad cathedral.
From 26 July-31 August Perfect Escapes has up to 38% off prices, with double rooms on offer at £71 (84.15€) per night on a room-only basis.
The 4-star hotel has a restaurant with a courtyard for al fresco meals and there’s also a dramatic bar. Rooms are "playful", notes Condé Nast Traveller, with leather-lined alcoves and are lit by fibre-optic "stars". A free scheduled shuttle service takes guests to the Santa Maria Novella train station in the centre of Florence.
