We went in this tour because it was the only available to see 'The Last Supper' but we discover the Sforza Castle and all the history behind it! It was amazing and our guide was fantastic, she described a lot of details in the castle and in the painting!
Just a little note: we had a lot of time in the castle, so the walk to Santa Maria della Grazie was made in a quick mode, what was difficult for some people, but is worth it!
This tour was great! Our guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. We started in the central courtyard area of the castle. Our guide told us the history of the castle and provided fascinating details. It got a bit tiring standing up for so long. Fortunately I had my walking stick with seat so I could sit and listen. I would have liked more time in the castle itself to look around. Our guide gave fascinating details inside the castle as well. Then we walked over to where The Last Supper is located. It's a 10-15 minute walk from the castle. Each group gets a limited amount of time to view the Last Supper. The painting is quite faded. The stories our guide told us, were truly fascinating. She explained about the paint that was used, why Leonardo chose that paint, and also told us about his life. I highly recommend this tour.
We had an excellent tour guide. Very entertaining.
Wow the Last Supper was breath-taking. Our tour guide knew so much information and gave us quite the tour!
Stunning! Worth the cost.
the tour guide was spectacular, and the tour itself was great. Would recommend this to anyone
It was fantastic and our guide Sarah was excellent. Was the highlight of our trip to Milan.
If ever in Milan, one must visit the Last Supper. Though seeing the Last Supper is the highlight of this tour, visiting and learning about the first family of Milan, The Sforza, is fascinating as well, in which the castle is named after. For three hours, our tour guide provided us with detailed history and information about Milan, the castle and of course Leonardo's The Last Supper. Even though you are only allowed 15 minutes to view this wonderment and no more than 20 people in the room, to see it in person is quite an experience. Highly recommend this tour. I would have given this a 5 star if we didn't rush to get to the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie where painted fresco is located. You will also be able to view another masterpiece in the same room called Crucifixion by Donato. Not well known work, but deserves some acknowledgement. Bonus tip - you can take pictures of the Last Supper no flash though.
