5 Reasons to Visit Santa Maria Delle Grazie

Mainly known as the home of Leonardo Da Vinci's world-famous The Last Supper, Santa Maria Delle Grazie in Milan is a magnificent church and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here are 5 reasons to visit this stunning and eclectic hybrid of architectural styles.

Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper

Few paintings are as iconic as Da Vinci's 15th century mural. Though nearly destroyed on many occasions, thanks to a recent restoration, it can now be admired in all its splendor.

The Facade

The exterior demonstrates the church's mix of architectural styles: while the sober terracota facade exemplifies the Lombard tradition, the lavish entrance is in Renaissance style.

The Nave

The central nave and the adjacent aisles, with their highly ornate and exquisitely frescoed arches, are splendid examples of Late Gothic architecture.

The Dome

Designed by the eminent Renaissance architect Donato Bramante, this remarkable dome is camouflaged on the outside – its hemisphere is only apparent from the church's interior.

The Cloister of Frogs

The lovely garden of this inner cloister, named after the statues that spout water into the fountain, is ideal for a picturesque breather from the bustle of Milan.

What People Are Saying About Santa Maria delle Grazie

Great service to see this one off masterpiece

Definitely recommend using this service. Having our reservation in advance took all the stress and uncertainty out of our visit. We had a 1pm viewing, so arrived in the area about 45 minutes before (to have a look around). Our representative arrived to give us our Duomo tickets. We then took our printed vouchers to the ticket office to get our entry tickets. There is a reception room to wait for your slot (be there at least 15 minutes before your time as they are prompt). Groups are let in and given 15 minutes to view the painting. It was larger than expected and very interesting. You can take photos with camera/phones but NO FLASH. Well worth it.

Very interesting, good and kind guide (Paolo) with much knowledge.

It was an interesting tour with a lot information about Leonardo da Vinci's work and life. The guide made it interesting for us and our two daughters (14 and 15 years). The techique with a microphone and a receiver + headphone worked perfectly.
Best of Milan Walking Tour with Last Supper Tickets Reviewed by Jacomine, 10/22/2016

Great way to learn a bit about the city!

While my wife and I enjoyed the walking tour and are glad we took it, we do feel the cost was a bit high compared to other walking tours, with other companies, in other major cities that we have visited in Europe. That said, our guide, "Charles", was both personable and knowledgeable. The pace of walking was good and the information shared was interesting and pertinent. Adequate time was given at each site. The tour helped orient us to the city so we could explore it in depth on our own in the following days.

From our guide to viewing the Last Supper all went perfectly.

Our guide and the viewing of the Last Supper was a memorable morning never to be missed. Efficient and professional. Our guide brought the master piece come to life with her fine commentary. Thank you for making this event one of the highlights of our month long visit to Italy.
