What to expect

Discover Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper and the marvelous church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, an architectural gem by Bramante, just next to The Last Supper.
With a professional and passionate guide (officially licensed) you can turn a simple visit into a fascinating experience, a journey into the lost grandeur of the Renaissance in Milan, and live the gripping story of this extraordinary painting.

Santa Maria delle Grazie Church

Take a very ambitious Duke, Ludovico il Moro, add a clever artist in search of opportunity, Leonardo da Vinci, and complete everything with the superior mind of a Renaissance archistar, Donato Bramante… You will soon get a clear picture of what Santa Maria delle Grazie could represent in that period: a great site where besides the monastery they were building ideas.

This tour will take you through the events that linked these illustrious characters: you will discover anecdotes and some gossips of their daily life. It will be like flying with a time machine to land in a corner of the Renaissance Milan. In fact, it doesn’t happen everyday to walk on Leonardo’s footprints in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Last Supper

Last but not least, you will see the enchanting Last Supper in the silent refectory of the convent. You will dive into the story painted by Leonardo da Vinci and you will observe the astonishment, embarrassment and agitation coming out from the bodies and the faces of the Apostles gathered around Christ. Strong gestures and expressions that Leonardo was able to reproduce with scientific attention. You will feel into your eyes the same wonder felt by travelers of every century in front of this magnificent scene that Leonardo was able to freeze in a timeless moment.
