Our 8:15 a.m. timed entry to see da Vinci’s Last Supper gave us an early start. When given the choice, I never choose to begin the day by alarm, but it turned out well today. Milan was extra beautiful with its empty, quiet Sunday morning streets.
In the fall I nervously made reservations for eight to see the painting. The twins don’t have the best track record for observing art respectfully, but they were champions today. It probably helps when there are only two pieces to see.
We kept the rest of the day light for the littles with a trip to the aquarium and Milan’s children’s museum. Errol, Dad, and Thom spent the afternoon at an Inter Milan game. They reported a great time but missed out on meeting a lovely Canadian family. Two English-speaking kids that also love climbing trees and rowdy play?! Vinnie and the twins were in heaven.
