So beautiful and abundant is the art in Florence that a whole syndrome—Stendhal—has been named for the dizzying, fainting response that some visitors experience at the sight of it. Aesthetes with a stronger constitution can see what all the fuss is about courtesy of this week's Escape to the BEST WESTERN Grand Hotel Adriatico in the Tuscan capital.

You're in for a visual treat from the minute you walk into the city-centre hotel: you and your fellow art critic will muse over the teak floors, oak furnishings, and plush fabrics as you unpack for an overnight stay in a classic double room for £91 (up to a £169 value). Alternatively, make it two nights for £161 (up to a £320 value), three nights for £223 (up to a £472 value), or five nights for £356 (up to a £774 value)—but however long you linger in your accommodation, expect it to include an en suite with shower and bath, LCD satellite TV, broadband connection, and welcome bottle of wine.

The hotel chef has curated a breathtaking American buffet breakfast platter that's included with each morning of your stay: think scrambled or boiled eggs, sausages, bacon, sweets and pastries, yoghurt, cereal, muesli—even sparkling wine alongside your tea or coffee.

Put your best pensive face on and warm up your thoughtful head-tilt as you prepare to enter the galleries that have felled many an enthusiast: the Uffizi, where you'll find Boticellis, da Vincis, and Michelangelos; the Bargello, with its Renaissance sculptures by Michelangelo, Donatello, Lombardo, and others; and the National Museum of San Marco, with the works of Fra Angelico. And that's before you even take a step back and consider the nearby Ponte Vecchio bridge, the palaces, and the iconic cathedral—topped with a dome that can be seen throughout the city.

Direct flight options to Florence with easyJet, Ryanair, Flybe, KLM, and more (not included). Flights take approximately two hours. The hotel is around 6km from Florence Airport.

  • "You can easily explore Tuscany using Florence as a base: enjoy the medieval splendours of Siena, Pisa, Lucca and San Gimignano, and wander the undulating Chianti countryside."
