  • Its certainly an experience tho day you have seen the Last Supper painting, but the English guider spoke with a very strong Italian accent, and it was hard to understand her. Also, there were too many...  read more »
  • In an annex to the church there is Leonardo da Vinci's famos mural painting "The Last Supper". Because of limited access pre-registration is required. Must See!
  • DaVinci's Last Supper painting was beautiful, and I'm so glad I saw it. I learned a lot about the motivations behind it, and glad I was able to see this work of DaVinci's as it continues to help me understand him and his work better. The TRICKY part is getting tickets. You need to be online to their website to get the 8 euro ticket for your 15 minute slot the minute they are released (60 days I believe?) If you miss this window, there is no begging and pleading your way in. They limit the number of people (and with a special door system, the amount of humidity) every day, to preserve the painting, which DaVinci painted dry instead of as a fresco, to try new techniques with shading and light. Because I missed the window by 2 days (I was moving and got distracted) I was devastated not to get the tickets. I was forced to go through a third party (tickitaly) which sells tickets (with a guide opposed to audio guide) for your 15 minute spot. Except they are 25 euros. Yes - this was a HUGE increase in cost. But we didn't want to pay for a 3 hour bus/walking tour that included it (even more money), and who knows when we will be back in Milan - so we spent the money, and saw the painting. Lesson learned. So for the record, our tickitaly tickets worked out fine. Brought our confirmation to the front desk at the church and picked them up. Our name was on the list. So if you end up in the same position - it's not a scam of any sort :-) But you do need to read the instructions and be on the ball to get tickets. This masterpiece has been bombed, destroyed by moisture, and is very fragile. So the rigidness is all about protecting the work. So I get it - just be prepared before you go!
  • Place to see the Leonard da Vinci's Last Supper. You must reserve the limited ticket in advance or buy the Milan's City tour with the ticket.
  • A beautiful church that houses the famous painting, The Last Supper, by Leonardo Da Vinci.
  • The original famous painting of Leonardo Da Vinci : The Last Supper is inside here. And this is a reason that why people come to this church. So it's worth for someone and it isn't for someone too. Not allow to take the originally photo inside.
