Italy - Milan - The Last Supper - February 1969

 We are the only ones here checking out Leonardo da Vinci's 'Last Supper' which was painted between 1595-1498.

In 1969 it was rather sad looking, I remember we weren't overwhelmed but restoration took place over 21 years, 10 years after we were there so maybe it looks a lot better now.   If you want to see this painting nowadays you have to buy tickets online at 30 Euros (A$36) each and book a time as well with warnings of not being late.  At the time I wrote this there are vacancies on the 20th, 21st of August but hurry they seem to be selling fast.   Wow... weren't we lucky.
