    Think Leonardo da Vinci spent time painting of the last supper is a limit experience.

  • Don't expect to see the Last Supper as you buy the ticket. There are tours throughout the day you can reserve places for. The Last Supper itself is beautiful and in pristine condition - just how you have seen it in the movies and history books. A must see in Milan. The tour takes you first through many security doors and then you enter the room with the painting for 15 minutes. That's it, but it is enough for a first look.
  • Such a rare thing to see, the last supper, only 60 people per hour. Book in advance, tickets are scarce. Don't even think of just turning up. You get a quick history plus 15 minutes in there to view it. Well worn, but still a spectacular sight. The adjoining church is also well worth a visit.
  • Beautiful Church, but the main attraction, 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, sealing the room to outside dangers to the fresco. Entrance €4.50 and should book in advance and when you buy 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!
  • I visited here about twenty years ago. Then a few people visited here. When I stayed here nobody existed. I felt this great piece was my own. I could my self photo front of L'Ultima Cena. I had been watching L'Ultima Cena for one hours. But the color of masterpiece was diminished then. Five years ago I visited second time, the color was very brilliant. And the venue of this masterpiece was existed in special air conditioning space, many people was visiting and for only few minutes I could stayed.
  • Nothing short of amazing. definite must see! The Last Supper by Leonardo is housed in the refectory and will leave you in awe.
