Il Cenacolo, Milan

4.4
One of the most famous paintings in the world, Leonardo da Vinci's Il Cenacolo is a 15th-century mural in the World Heritage-listed convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. This painting is one of the most studied, scrutinized, and satirized works of art ever. It was created for the artist's patron, Ludovico Sforza, and represents the scene of the last supper attended by Jesus and all of his disciples, as told by the Gospel of John. The painting measures 460 cm by 880 cm (180 in by 350 in) and covers an end wall of the convent's dining hall. Though little of the original painting remains today, repeated restoration efforts have prevented the image from completely deteriorating. To see this masterpiece, you must book tickets ahead of time, often months in advance. Go online to explore guided tour options and see available time slots.

  • There are no words to say the wonder that has been placed before our eyes! Although he knows the work well and has seen it several times in reproductions, internet newspapers etc., seeing it live is exceptional, takes your breath away. The tour management was excellent and the guide very very very professional

  • A wonderful treasure in the history of art! It's huge and the 3D effect is astonishing. Leonardo was truly a genius.  more »
  • To see the work, you need to organize and schedule well before, as they are small groups and sells fast Mt. The work is really impressive, you can still see some scribbles made by Da Vinci there. Prepare to provide MTA attention, as your contact with the work is extremely fast.
