Aperitivo

One of the best things about Italy is aperitivo. I tested it out this Wednesday with my friend Kristen, who I met through one of my best friends in Los Angeles. It’s a little like happy hour in the US, except in Italy you have only to buy one drink after which you can eat a whole buffet for free. Yeah!

How to See the Sold Out Last Supper by da Vinci

The painting of the Last Supper by da Vinci is sold out months in advance in high season. I never plan ahead, but I did want to see the Last Supper so I had to figure something out. Sometimes you can buy a ticket off of a tour guide at the entrance if they have an extra one. The day I was there this tactic wasn’t working so I went to a bus tour operator because some tours include the Last Supper. Well of course they were sold out too, but I squeezed onto the waiting list and luckily just made it onto the tour.

Warning: this video is boring so don’t watch it unless you are in Milano and can’t otherwise see the Last Supper. ;-)

The Detour to Milano

That fire in the hills above Monte Carlo lead to quite a lengthy detour of hours of hairpin turns. I’ve edited it down to a couple minutes for you though. The terrain was beautiful so focus on the mountains above the road when you can. And keep in mind I did NOT speed up this video…

Monte Carlo Swimming Pool for Giants

I stopped in Monte Carlo for a little bit on my way from Cannes to Milano. They’ve created some giant steps into the ocean at one spot that was beautiful. The water at that point was about 10m deep and crystal clear. Then I cruised around the Formula 1 track that they hadn’t dismantled yet from the weekend before.

Last Night in Cannes

It was kind of sad leaving Cannes so I had to turn it out! Remember this dancer from the VIP last Sunday night? If you liked her there then see if she shows up in this next video…
