My wife and I (both mid 20s) will be traveling to Europe in May. We are going to spend a week in Paris, then fly from Orly to Pisa. After this we had planned on spending five days in Florence and then five in Rome.

However we are now unsure of whether or not we want to stay in Florence. We are not art buffs, but do love wine, food, atmosphere, and of course scenery. The question is whether or not Florence will be a good hub to see the surrounding Tuscan cities, or would we be better of finding a villa in the countryside? Will this be cheaper, overall, than hotels in Florence?

We had to make a large purchase, and this ate into our vacation fund, so we are looking for some slightly cheaper alternatives to what we had planned. If anyone has any hotels they recommend, $200/night or less, in Florence or any villas in the countryside please help! Also, are there any apartments in Rome you recommend? Thank you!!
