  • Milan: Last Supper 1-Hour Skip-the-Line Guided Tour

    4. Milan: Last Supper 1-Hour Skip-the-Line Guided Tour

    Make the most of your time with this skip-the-line guided tour to see the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. The famous painting is in what used to be the refectory of the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Once inside your eyes will be captured by the beauty of the fresco. Learn all about the history and secrets of the painting, and discover more about the time Leonardo da Vinci spent in Milan while working at this project. Your knowledgeable tour guide will enlighten you with fascinating stories and details about da Vinci and his work. Church schedules permitting, your tour guide will also escort you to visit the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie.

    It was OK. I would have liked more explanation of the church instead of just one part was Gothic and the other pre Gothic. There was interesting art work in the church but the guide didn't explain it. I understand that the guide doesn't go into a lot of explanation because the average tourist doesn't know a lot about art but I would have liked more details. For example, she could have said what other works Bramante is famous for. That would have made it more interesting for the people who are not art experts. Also some more info about Milan's history and the Dukes so it would be more understandable the value of Leonardo's work. I just think it wasn't enough detailed for me. Also the price for a group tour is very high. The next day I paid just a little more for a private guide to the Duomo and it was worth it.

Great package deal, we didn't have the tickets printed and it was fine, they just scanned the QR codes from our phones. No hassle at all getting in and everything is clearly laid out, the people working there were also happy to guide us to where we needed to proceed from the cathedral to the entrance to the rooftop. The cathedral is magnificent, a must see when in Milan!

Milan cathedral is absolutely stunning. Well worth a visit. The rooftop walk is breathtaking with great views across the city. The rooftop itself is so ornate and beautiful it’s hard to believe it was built so perfect so many years ago!

The organization of the tour was great. Guide arrived ahead of time and tour started exactly at 15:00. Guide had high level of knowledge and shared a lot of details. She answered all our questions and was very patient.

Excellent tour with Victor. We enjoyed the history he gave about the Cathedral. With such a vast building we feel we needed a pro to experience it properly. Well worth the money.

This shouldnt be missed! the vie from the top is breathtaking
