Milan is home to one of the most famous paintings in the world – Leonardo da Vinci’s 'The Last Supper' (‘Il Cenacolo’ in Italian). This masterpiece is housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, and you’ll have the chance to see it on this half-day tour. You’ll also visit the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana and the temporary exhibition of the Atlantic Codex, the largest collection of scientific drawings and writings by da Vinci in the world.

Reservations to see "The Last Supper" are limited and sell out quickly, sometimes months in advance. Choose this tour to be guaranteed advance booking and entrance tickets. The late afternoon departure allows you to see the painting outside peak visiting hours.
This is the tour for Leonardo da Vinci fans in Milan! Join this three-hour walking tour to see da Vinci’s famous painting, The Last Supper, hidden away at the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This enormous and complex 15th-century mural captures the emotional moment in which Jesus announces that one of his 12 disciples will betray him. The painting had been severely damaged over the centuries and has only very recently undergone a painstaking 21-year restoration, revealing the original colors and details of this masterpiece.

The delicate nature of this mural and its importance means that entrance is strictly limited to those who have pre-booked tickets – only one group is allowed to stand with the painting at a time, in a specially conditioned room, for 15 minutes only. This tour includes the pre-booked entrance you need to see the painting, as well as an intimate viewing of this special piece of art. The late afternoon departure time allows you to avoid the peak visiting hours of the day.

The Last Supper isn’t da Vinci’s only work in Milan – you’ll also visit Sforza Castle to see his painted ceilings in the castle’s Sale delle Asse. And you’ll visit the temporary exhibition of the Atlantic Codex, a collection of scientific drawings by Leonardo that will allow you to appreciate how he was just as skilled technically as he was artistically. The Atlantic Codex is a very special collection – it’s a 12-volume bound set of drawings and writings from 1478 to 1519, and it’s the largest such collection in the world. It was restored by Brasilian monks in the late 1960s and is currently on display at the Bramante's Sacristy, very near The Last Supper; this tour gives you the chance to see it.

We never thought we would enjoy this as much as we did. Lorella was beyond fabulous. She was so passionate about the subject and kept us completely inthralled right up to the viewing of The Last Supper. I don't think we have ever enjoyed a guided tour as much!!! Would highly recommend seeing this through her eyes!!!

This tour is a must-do when in Milan! Our tour guide was very passionate about the subject and managed to actually share her passion with everyone. What an experience to be standing in front of Da Vinci's Last Supper painting - simply breathtaking! I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
