Il Cenacolo

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

Well, if I had a bucket list, this would definitely be on it — seeing Da Vinci’s Last Supper in Milan!!! 25 people at a time are allowed in for 15 minutes (wish I could have stayed longer ) and, we booked this 3 months ago in order to get a slot!

It is larger and higher on the wall and a little more deteriorated than I imagined, but I swear it glowed with such power! Sorry, no photos were allowed 🙁

The State Hermitage Museum

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Wow, talk about an amazing experience at the Hermitage here in St.Petersburg.  We spent most of the day on three floors of the palace of Peter the Great viewing famous art.

We were nose to nose with Rembrandts, da Vinci’s, Michelangelo, Rubens, Picasso, Matisse etc. We even managed to lose Donna, so talk about exciting!!
