What You Can Expect

Milan Art Tour: Da Vinci's 'The Last Supper' and the Church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore

Admire 'The Last Supper,' a Da Vinci masterpiece

Choose between three different start times for this tour and then meet your guide at the set time and place to start this entertaining and informative 2-hour tour. Let your guide lead you through central Milan, discovering some must-see spots as well as some hidden gems you might not have found on your own. 

Stroll down Via Torino to the Church of Santa Maria presso San Satiro, built on an ancient sacred ground and a popular place for pilgrims in the late Middle Ages. The church was partly redesigned by famed Renaissance-era artist Bramante as well as Giovanni Antonio Amadeo. 

Move along, walk down Via Spaderi to Piazza Affari to view the controversial 'L.O.V.E. sculpture by Maurizio Cattelan. The sculpture depicts a 36-foot-high (11-meter) middle finger that is facing the Italian stock exchange. After giving some love to the sculpture, continue on to the Church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore, an erstwhile Benedictine convent that today is an archeological museum. Note the plain facade and how it gives way to an ornate and colorful interior. Often referred to as the 'Sistine Chapel of Milan,' the 16th-century structure is a riot of murals and paintings, many of which were made by former students of Leonardo da Vinci. 

The last stop may be the highlight of your time in Milan: skip-the-line access to get an up-close look at Da Vinci's 'The Last Supper.' Seeing this painting in person is like seeing it for the first time as you get a better context for it. The painting is in the former dining hall in the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie and depicts Jesus eating with his disciples. 

After lingering in front of the painting and listening to your guide tell you the history of it, head back to the starting point to conclude the tour.

This tour was so worthwhile. In a short time we saw and learned so much about this grand city. Our guide, Charles was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. He prepared us for the viewing of The Last Supper super well. This was one of the highlights of my trip to Italy.

This was our first trip to Italy, and also our first time using Viator. The experience couldn't have been any better. I enthusiastically recommend both this tour and Viator. With our tour guide we were able to see things we never would have found on our own, and we went places we certainly wouldn't have went to without a local. And our tour guide was one of the highlights of this trip. Her name was Chiera sp? - pronounced Kiera. She was very energetic and gave us lots of facts and information as we went. We also had her as our guide for the rooftop Duomo tour. If the other guides are as good as she is, then this is a certain win booking.
