What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Leonardo da Vinci Walking Tour of Milan Including 'The Last Supper' Ticket

Leonardo da Vinci Milan walking tour including The Last Supper

Meet your local guide outside the Ambrosian Library (Pinacoteca Ambrosiana) in central Milan. Receive a headset to help you best hear the commentary and then head inside to see the Atlantic Codex, the largest collection of Leonardo da Vinci drawings in the world. Follow your guide through the temporary exhibition and hear how this 12-volume bound set of scientific drawings and writings, comprised between 1478 and 1519, was written in mirror image — right to left and backwards.

After marveling at the Atlantic Codex, enjoy a leisurely stroll through the city center to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Enjoy a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed church and Dominican convent and then perhaps refuel with a drink and a light snack (own expense) in the square outside the church.

Then, walk together with your guide to the convent’s refectory where The Last Supper is housed. Bypass the crowds with your skip-the-line ticket and enter the intimate room with your guide — only one group at a time is allowed to stand with the painting. Get up close to this world-famous mural that depicts the moment Jesus announced that one of his 12 disciples would betray him. Admire the exquisite colors and details and hear about the painstaking 21-year restoration that is has recently undergone.

After your time is up (15 minutes is the maximum amount of time anyone is allowed to stay in the specially conditioned room), head to the souvenir shop where your tour concludes. Here, take the opportunity to purchase gifts for yourself, your friends or your family. Alternatively, ask your guide for directions to anywhere else you want to go.

Please note: reservations to see The Last Supper are limited and sell out quickly, sometimes months in advance. Choose this tour to be guaranteed advance booking and entrance tickets

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Our tour guide was fantastic, very knowledgeable and seamed happy to share with the group. Loved the ear phones so I could hear everything she said. The painting left me speachless. Also seeing Lenoardo's writings and sketches was a once in a lifetime event. I would recommend this to everyone.

An outstanding guide who was extremely knowledgable and passionate. The pre sites and the short walk thru the city was interesting and informative. THE LAST SUPPER to finally get to view it after all these years. Its extremely difficult to get in, the church seels tickets but never seems to have any available. Then confusion when out time was given to another group. Our guide worked hard to get us in thankfully. You must line up prior to entry, then go thru tqo spaces being held in the last to cool down so as not to disturb the atmosphere in the room. Finally you are allowed to entry and fall under the paintings magical spell.Since the size of the griups are strickly controlled you have room to move about freely and to visually enjoy your time with the painting. It starts about six feet up from the floor level. After 20 years on restoration its strikes one as being in poor condition but we are lucky that it survived. Simply look at it. Move from side to side and the eyes of Jesus appear to follow you. It envelops you like a breaking wave.
Must be considered one of the worlds most outstanding work produced by man. Its worth the effort it takes to get to see it. You are strictly herded out by the staff after your allotted time. Good for them! Go to see it!
