  • This is one of the milestones for who can spend only a we in Milan. Is best known for the fresco by Leonardo da Vinci, the last supper, preserved within it, in the refectory. But that in itself is an imposing architectural work, Catholic religious emblem, the Church was included in the Unesco World Heritage List in 1980 because one of the greatest examples of Renaissance art.

  • We were here to look at ultima cena fresco. Second fresco is worth seeing. After a tour, you can go to the souvenir shop.  more »

  • Beautiful Church, but the main attraction is obviously the Last Supper... stunning piece of artwork, looking better then expected, obviously due to extensive restorations. Innovative method of viewing, as you go through a series of doors that open and close behind you, sealing the room to outside dangers to the fresco. Entrance costs €4.50 and should book in advance, as if you buy at the church you get given a slot of when your turn to go in is, but for me at least this was only a wait of 2 hours so easy to return!
  • Worth spending time to see the last supper. You have to be fexible to get a ticket. It shows fully booked, when you are trying to book it online. Go early around 8:00 to the ticket counter and you might be lucky to get a ticket (due to cancellation by others). Most of the time you do not have any choice. Atleast you will be able to visit the fresco.
  • Just need to be aware: the visit to Da Vinci's all time classic need to be booked and go through security check. You can take photos. But please do remember: DO NOT USE FLASH!! Turn off your flash before enter the chapel. Be a good behavior tourist.
  • Pleased to visit there. Clean and comfortable to see the human legacy. However we borrowed the guide machine and gave us wrong language. In the middle of tour we did not know what to do. And when we returned the machine back to the staff she blamed us not to change it ourselves and even not apologize to us. Hard to image a world class human legacy has trained this kind of staff.
  • Viewing is limited to 15 minutes and one must go through several sealed doors to reach it as every attempt is being made to preserve this centuries-old masterpiece. As in so many cases, one cannot truly appreciate this artwork from photos. It has a tendency to subdue/silence observers. No flash allowed but not needed. A must see church, because it is the site of The Last Supper, one of the few extant paintings of Leonardo da Vinci. The painting is still in fairly good condition, in a large climate controlled room which can accommodate a crowd. Each group is limited to a 15 minute viewing, which is ample time. The museum is closed on Mondays. The church is located in the heavily trafficked center of Milan.
