Leonardo da Vinci Half-Day Walking Tour including 'The Last Supper'

Leonardo da Vinci Half-Day Walking Tour including The Last Supper

This is the tour for Leonardo da Vinci fans in Milan! Join this three-hour walking tour to see da Vinci’s famous painting, The Last Supper, hidden away at the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This enormous and complex 15th-century mural captures the emotional moment in which Jesus announces that one of his 12 disciples will betray him. The painting had been severely damaged over the centuries and has only very recently undergone a painstaking 21-year restoration, revealing the original colors and details of this masterpiece.

The delicate nature of this mural and its importance means that entrance is strictly limited to those who have pre-booked tickets – only one group is allowed to stand with the painting at a time, in a specially conditioned room, for 15 minutes only. This tour includes the pre-booked entrance you need to see the painting, as well as an intimate viewing of this special piece of art. The late afternoon departure time allows you to avoid the peak visiting hours of the day.

The Last Supper isn’t da Vinci’s only work in Milan – you’ll also visit Sforza Castle to see his painted ceilings in the castle’s Sale delle Asse. And you’ll visit the temporary exhibition of the Atlantic Codex, a collection of scientific drawings by Leonardo that will allow you to appreciate how he was just as skilled technically as he was artistically. The Atlantic Codex is a very special collection – it’s a 12-volume bound set of drawings and writings from 1478 to 1519, and it’s the largest such collection in the world. It was restored by Brasilian monks in the late 1960s and is currently on display at the Bramante's Sacristy, very near The Last Supper; this tour gives you the chance to see it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

I really enjoyed this Tour. Although, out tour guide was initially flustered as his assistance was somewhat delayed, he was able to buffer the situation and carry on professionally thru the rest of the tour. He appeared very knowledgable about Leonardo da Vinci and other famous artists of the same time period. I was awe struck by what I learned and experienced during this tour. I feel priviledged that I was able to be see the original "Last Supper" painting and get a personalized view of the famous work of art that many people only see and hear of it in books or cinema. This is a must "see"

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

It was worth purchasing the tour just to get in to see the "Last Supper". Leonardo's Codex was also interesting and it was nice to pass through Sforza Palace on the way there. All in all, an adequate trip for a quick tour through Milan.
