Make your way to Santa Maria delle Grazie, where you’ll meet a guide and small group to explore the UNESCO-listed church and Dominican convent.
The guide will help bring Milan’s history to life, sharing anecdotes and gossip from the leading lights of the Renaissance era. Santa Maria delle Grazie, and Da Vinci’s remarkable fresco, have survived centuries of turmoil and change including multiple restorations, and heavy shelling during the Second World War.
While you’ll have time to explore much of the convent, the highlight of the tour is The Last Supper itself, preserved since the late 15th-century in the church’s refectory, once a dining room for the resident monks. Enjoy the chance to see the fresco first hand, while standing in the room where Da Vinci worked and painted on a double layer of dried plaster.
This tour of Santa Maria delle Grazie concludes after your viewing of The Last Supper.
