Cops said the man, 41 – who has not been named – was found dead in his room next to a 43-year-old woman believed to be his wife covered in cuts and bruises.
Staff at the swanky Hotel Continentiale in the heart of Florence called the cops after the woman asked for help.
Medics rushed her to Careggi hospital where she's said to be in a serious but stable condition, according to the Daily Mail.
The couple – believed to be from Manchester – arrived at the hotel on Friday night and called for help early Saturday morning.
A police source told the publication both people involved are Brits who may have been engaged in an erotic game that went wrong in their hotel room.
The source said cops were also assess whether this was a case of domestic abuse, though the "general direction is that of an erotic game".

"Her current condition is serious but she is stable and her injuries are not life-threatening. We hope to question her at some point in the next few hours."
