Is there a definition of what makes a city an art city ?

I wouldn't presume to speak for Joaquin, but to me all the cities listed are renowned for the quality of their architecture and public art and/or the quality of publicly-accessible art collections and galleries. Bugler 05:36, 10 December 2008 (EST)
Are we talking about art as in painting and sculpture tied in with the architecture etc. or "The arts" which includes music and literature and the performance of same? If this is the case, then cities like Salzburg and Vienna, Berlin, Edinburgh, Prague, Barcelona, and others need to get a run-on part in the team. AlanE 16:07, 11 December 2008 (EST)
Vienna is already in the list; Berlin and Prague are coming soon. Are you sure about the others? --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 18:36, 11 December 2008 (EST)
Edinburgh comes immediately to mind because of its Arts Festival - which encompasses a number of separate festivals and arts activities (including the military tattoo0 and is recognised as the biggest in the world. Salzburg is the home of Mozart and and has wall-to-wall Mozartiana everywhere you go. Maybe not Barcelona, but how about Venice. Venice is not far behind Florence in culture - less art perhaps but more music and comparable architecture. AlanE 20:09, 11 December 2008 (EST)
