Spring Break in France and Italy

I spent spring break touring France and Italy visiting the Louvre in Paris, Milan's Duomo, Florence's Galleria dell'Accademia, San Gimignano and Sienna (where the color terminology comes from) in Tuscany, and Rome's Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel admiring some amazing art, architecture, and sculpture and soaking in the culture.  The trip was terrific and I'll share some of what we learned about art and culture in class this week in the mean time check out the amazing video below about the Sistine Chapel which was unquestionably one of the trips big highlights!
The group I was traveling with also happened to bump into some Italian students on a while in Florence which was fun and unexpected below is Lisa and Harry from AP Art on the streets of Florence outside the Baptistery!
