Back from Italy

I and my family have just returned from Italy where we stayed six days in Milan and took trips by train to Turin and Padua. Our primary goal was to see the famous Shroud of Turin which was on display. It is concidered so holy that it is only on display about four times in a century. In Padua we saw the famous frescoes by Giotto which were made in 1305 in the Scrovegni chapel. We had also hoped to see Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper in Milan but there were no tickets available. We had planned to go to Italy about a month earlier (when we also had tickets for the Last Supper)  but then all flights were cancelled for weeks because of the vulcanic ashes from Iceland.
