    Another person puzzled by omission of the Hermitage!

    No Hermitage?

    Seems like a major oversight.

    My favorite is Piero della Fraancesca’s Pregnant Madonna near Arezzo, and tied for second are Michelangelo’s David and the two wooden statues that together portray the Annunciation in St Augustine’s church in San Gimignano. But the best way to see all the wonders of Tuscany is to skip the hotels and book a week or more in a quiet place in the country, for a peaceful refuge after the bustle of the towns! Stay some place central and forage from there!

    I thought the comment was directed toward each picture. Turns out thats not the case. The original comment was directed towards the Louvre.
    As a lover of Spain and its art, I must reccommend El Prado. Incredible. Truly.

    A lovely museum, but a bit anti-climatic. While the Angel of Victory is quite breathtaking the Mona Lisa leaves much to be desired.
