... collections of paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Reubens and Rembrandt. Finally we left through a gallery containing Canova sculptures. A whirlwind tour but it is only possible to digest so much.
We were back at the ship by 15:00 and had a couple of hours to relax before having an early dinner and getting ready for our trip to the ballet in the evening.
