  • One cannot think of Santa Marie delle Grazie without imagining the work perhaps more controversial than Leonardo's last supper. The entrance to the Church is on one of the old Churchyards broken stone and overlooking the oldest part of Corso Magenta, with Art Nouveau buildings. To see.

  • Obviously note for the fresco of Leonardo da Vinci in the refectory, the Church still has its charm due to the Bramantesque Forum. Magnificent time, full of light and perspective. The visit is a must.

  • This church was beyond beautiful. The architecture and design alone are a must see. This is like a museum inside of a church and it's free so make sure you go!

  • Gorgeous church! The entry is free. Loved the centerpiece of it all! Take some time to appreciate the beauty it holds.
  • One of the most beautiful churches of Milan! The real diamond, with its beautiful external architecture and inner decorations that are bringing you peace and calm. I love visiting it, even for 5 minutes to sit inside and relax my thoughts. It is a home of the "Last Supper" of Leonardo da vinci but it's a bit hard to get the tickets (you need to book them in advance). Do not miss it!
  • Book a tour. Our guide pointed out aspects of painting, talked about restoration process, history of church and of Leonardo. She talked for fifteen minutes before we looked at the painting. The fifteen minutes with a knowledgeable guide while looking at the painting was wonderful. Be sure and look in the church itself and at the heraldic emblems and various portraits on the exterior of the church on the back and side facing the street.
  • Beautiful little church that we visited to see The Last Supper. Much larger and more isolated than we expected, the tour guides take you in one group at a time to see the painting and then escort you out. Overall a good experience except for the loud tour operator that came in with us.
  • Gorgeous church with lots of interesting things to see. Right next to the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, the church also hosts the Codice Atlantico drawings by Leonardo.
