Florence for non-art and non-museum lovers

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

Currently contemplating a three-week tour of Tuscany and the logical starting point would be Florence, and a loop from there. Neither me nor my partner are too keen on art (although we would be happy to spend a half day maybe looking at the best of it). Hence, I am wondering whether Florence would hold as much appeal for us as for those who are big into the Renaissance. Is it still a great city in terms of wandering, eating, wine bars and architecture, to name a few of our interests?

What are people's views?

I am not looking for an itinerary for Tuscany!!

Thanks in advance.

PG
