Il Cenacolo, Milan

4.7
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.

    We were on a fast sightseeing in Milan. the most important places to see. It turns out that the tickets sold out. A limited number of tourists. And the message from the tourist information that 2 weeks before you need to book a ticket.

    We traveled with a child of 1 year and 3. Logistics is complicated, and we assume it, but thanks to whoever puts you facilities. This is not the case. You have to enter with quiet hours. We went half an hour before, taking advantage of that we were already in the area and that the children were asleep in his pram, asking if there was a problem. We were told that no, that later, while the receptionists did not stop to speak among them and made us miserable case. They make you wait in a small room before access. Our surprise to deliver tickets and tells us that we have at 6 o'clock and they are even 5.30. What have said you Lady! Ah well wait. 0 empathy. 10 in borderia.
