The ‘Mona Lisa’ rests her mysterious head at home in one of the world’s largest museums, The Louvre. Visitors flock to The Louvre in packs to get a glimpse of Mona Lisa’s coy smile.

Leonardo da Vinci completed The ‘Last Supper’ on a wall in the convent connected to Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan, Italy. Due to the extensive deterioration that the work has experienced over the years, visitors are only allowed to view the work in small groups. If you’re planning on traveling to Milan, ensure that you book your trip the church ahead of time.
Princess Czartoryski’s son purchased Leonardo’s portrait, ‘Lady with an Ermine’ in 1778, and returned to Poland with it. After a series of renovations and scandal, the museum is currently open to tourists. Visitors can view the famous painting as well as collections from the Royal Family of Poland.
‘Ginevra de’ Benci’ can be found at the National Gallery of Art in all of her pale and flawless beauty.
