Highlights

  • Includes free admission to top local attractions
  • Led by an art historian
  • Perfect introduction for first-time visitors
Meet your guide in central Milan and start your small-group walking tour on the trail of the Renaissance genius Leonardo da Vinci.

Receive a headset to help you best hear the commentary and learn how da Vinci was employed by Milan’s regent, Ludovico Sforza, between 1482 and 1499, a period when he produced many great works, including The Last Supper.

As you walk, see places where da Vinci frequented and hear about his Codexes, the scientific sketches and notes he produced during his life. Pause now and then to see samples from the notebooks on your guide’s tablet — each one an insight into his staggering genius.

Admire the Piazza Duomo and stroll to Corte Vecchia, the site of the great artist’s workshop where he produced drawings of flying machines. See the Piazza Mercanti and Carmagnola Palace, where Ludovico’s mistress Cecilia Gallerani once lived — the woman shown in his Lady with an Ermine masterpiece.

Take in the exterior of the massive palace-fortress of Sforza Castle that was home to the ruling Sforzas from 1450. Hear about the secret tunnel that links the castle to the Church of Santa Maria della Grazie, where a refectory houses The Last Supper.

Walk to the UNESCO-listed Santa Maria delle Grazie and see its Dominican Convent before heading for its refectory. Use your skip-the-line ticket to bypass the crowds, and enter the specially conditioned room with your guide to witness the world-famous mural painting for the allotted time — only limited numbers can view the work for 15 minutes at most.

After ogling the stunning depiction of Jesus’ last meal with his disciples, your tour comes to an end. Receive a 10% discount card for use later at the Designer Outlet Fidenza Village south of Milan, together with a free map of Milan’s cultural sights and other discount offers, and then say goodbye to your guide.

An Excellent tour and highly recommended. We had an outstanding guide who was extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We booked mainly because we couldnt get tickets to see the Last Supper, but it turned out to be a very enjoyable and informative tour. We have 2 younger kids and our group was small but our tour guide Fedra was superb at engaging the whole group and the children said they wanted to do more walking tours after we had finished!. She asked questions and encouraged everyone to participate after introducing everyone in our relatively small group of 8.
We met in the Doumo Piazza. Fedra is a local from Milano, and very knowledgeable about explaining her city, Leonardo and history to us. She took us past the impressive Duomo, Galleria Vittorio Emmanuelle II,La Scala Theatre, the financial / banking buildings, the Expo Gate and into Castello Sforzesco and through the grounds of the old royal palace, to get to the Santa Maria Della Grazie and the Last Supper. Viewing this was an amazing experience and after a 8 minute commentary and we had the rest of the time to view the painting and ask questions after we were outside. One highlight was at the end of the Galleria Emmanuel the admission included access to the Leonardo 3 display which has a rendition of what the Last Supper might look like, if it had just been finished. We discussed the painting in some detail here before seeing it later at the church which helped cover details obscured or lost over the years. The L3 team have also put together also has a great collection of interactive machines recreated from Leonardos drawings in his codex and we had time to look at these. If you take into the account the admission charges to this and to the Last Supper, this tour is really good value.
Bravissimo Fedra! Thank you for such a lovely and insightful tour into Milan and Leonardo and the Last Supper!
