What to expect

Men have always entrusted their stories to walls. Tales of hunting and war, images of kings and queens... even wildly written messages of love! But some walls have been more fortunate than others. Leonardo da Vinci painted his Last Supper on the north wall of the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie.

With this tour you will explore the history of this extraordinary painting and its protagonists - a fascinating story, thanks to our professional and exhaustive guide, who also happens to be passionate about Leonardo and the Renaissance. This way you can turn a simple visit into a fascinating experience, a journey into the lost grandeur of Renaissance Milan.

Santa Maria delle Grazie

Think about a very ambitious Duke... Ludovico il Moro. Add an ingenious artist looking for an opportunity... Leonardo da Vinci. And the sophisticated mind of a famous architect... Donato Bramante. You will get a clear picture of what Santa Maria delle Grazie was like in the Renaissance period: a place where, in addition to the convent, ideas were built. Your guide will tell you about the events that brought these illustrious figures together, sharing anecdotes of everyday life and some historical gossip. A journey back in time, in a corner of Milan away from the frenzy of everyday life. On the other hand, it's not every day that you get a chance to walk in the footsteps of Leonardo, in a place that has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Last Supper

Finally, the centerpiece: the enchantment of the Last Supper in the silence of the convent friars' refectory. Together with your guide, you will enter the story painted by Leonardo da Vinci. You will see the astonishment, the embarrassment and the agitation narrated in the bodies and faces of the apostles gathered around Christ. Engaging expressions that Leonardo has been able to reproduce with scientific accuracy. You will experience the perplexity of travelers who throughout the centuries have stood before this grandiose scene which Leonardo has been able to lock in a timeless moment, like a camera of emotions.
