Brandon Zech and Christina Rees discuss whether or not big-name art attractions are worth braving the crowds (and which ones aren’t miserable to visit).
“A lot of the art attractions that have a weight behind them are the hallmark pieces of art history, or the pieces that have come into the public eye — like the Sistine Chapel or the Mona Lisa.”
