Then the Easter holiday week set in, and car museums shut their doors.
Not being Catholics, we thought last week was the Holy Week (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Sunday). We of course knew that Monday was Easter Monday, but never dreamed that Holy Week would be this passed week (too). So instead of accommodating all of the tourists (including thousands of Italians) who might just finally have time to visit a car museum, the rest of the automobile museums we wanted to visit were closed.
So we had a change of plans! Instead of our son's beloved Cars and Coffee, we had Cars and Catholic Churches.
Oh, and for today (on last full day of our Italian vacation), we found a huge classic car exhibition near Milan! More about that later.
