I did it. I visited the AGO on the free evening starting at 6 pm. Saw tons of girlfriends enjoying the privilege. The big line-up at the entrance? It was for people who wanted to see the Picasso special exhibition. Those of us who simply wanted to see the rest of the exhibits could enter right away.
What a treat! You don't need to visit it all until you[re exhausted. You can just come back another Wednesday.
Bad news: the breathtaking tree sculptures of Giuseppe Penone we could enjoy in the Galleria Italia are gone...
Good news: they've created a new café space in the Galleria Italia, which, I must admit, is a great way to admire the gorgeous Galleria Italia.
A visit to the AGO is a nice complement to Stroll 4 (QUEEN Street Smart Stroll) in my guide Toronto Urban Strolls... for girlfriends.
