After meeting your guide at the Ambrosian Library in the center of Milan, put on your headset so that you can hear about the history of the places you visit. Expect to be wowed by the guide's historical anecdotes about the amazing works of Leonardo da Vinci. Then go in to see the Atlantic Codex, the largest collection of Da Vinci drawings on the planet. Let your guide lead you through the exhibit and learn about how this 12-volume set of late-15th/early-16th-century drawings and writings were created in mirror images.
Linger for a while at the Atlantic Codex and then walk through Milan with your guide and group, taking in the elaborate buildings and the charming streets. Once at the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, start a guided tour. The UNESCO World Heritage-listed church and Dominican convent was built in the late 15th century. After seeing much of the church, head into the erstwhile dining hall of the convent where Da Vinci's masterpiece, The Last Supper, is. Thanks to your skip-the-line ticket, breeze right in.
Enjoy the iconic painting and be sure to view it from a distance. Seeing it in the context of the fact that it's in a dining hall adds another level of intrigue and appreciation to the work. After your 15 minutes are up (the time allotted to each visitor), exit through the gift shop where the tour concludes.
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.
