We like

  • The hotel's location is spot-on for those wishing to explore the city’s illustrious cultural attractions (spoiler: there are many). Pack some flat shoes and start with some of the must-sees, including the staggeringly huge and rather beautiful cathedral, a 20-minute walk from the hotel. Spend some time at the Accademia Gallery; San Marco Museum; and Uffizi Gallery, home to the works of Leonardo da Vinci, Botticelli and Michelangelo. Ease yourself in with a delicious bite at the Mercato Centrale, before checking out souvenirs in the surrounding streets; investigating the choice of wine tastings, gelato shops and panini merchants should also be on your list.
