halls, The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. The Last Supper is one of the most iconic paintings from the renaissance, and perhaps one of the most iconic paintings of western civilization. The church was bombed in 1943 during WWII and almost all of the original church was destroyed. Only few things remained intact, a few walls and the painting of The Last Supper.

This is the church that houses the iconic "The Last Supper." You must take the time to visit one of the most famous of Leonardo's works.

Even if it wasn't the home of Leonardo da Vinci Masterpiee " The Last supper", this Church would be well worth to visit.

Milan is a city of hidden gems. Age-old beauties sit quietly in enclosed courtyards (like this church/view) or hide further still, like beyond the multiple doors of the church's walls. Inside delle Grazie is Leonardo da Vinci's original L'Ultima Cena, or Last Supper. And no, it's not a fresco.

The ticket system is a little weird, but if you purchased a ticket to see The Last Supper, you stand in line in front of the white building to exchange your online ticket for a regular ticket which admits you into the church.

From there you are shuttled into 3 different rooms before entering into the room with The Last Supper painting. There are nice information panels as well as a 3D version of the painting for the visually impaired.

I would try to get online tickets for as early as possible so that you don't have to share the room with lots of other people.

Santa Maria delle Grazie is where you'll find The Last Supper. You can buy your tickets in advance online and it's worth it since you won't have to spend your time waiting in line. I really enjoyed seeing The Last Supper in person. It's quite impressive and they only let a small number of people in at a time, so you really get a chance to take this masterpiece in without being elbowed in the ribs.

See this church and the Last Supper. Worth visiting, but the setting is not grandiose.

Book in advance a visit to the Leonardo's masterpiece "L'ultima cena". Stunning experience, a must-to-see. Also, the church represents a mix of different styles (among them, Bramante worked for the cupola).

Santa Maria delle Grazie is the location of Leonardo da Vinci's Last Supper. That's reason enough to go, but the church itself is very pretty.

The original famous painting of Leonardo Da Vinci : The Last Supper is inside here. And this is a reason that why people come to this church. So it's worth for someone and it isn't for someone too. Ticket fee is €6.5 and should be book in advance (plus €1.5). Not allow to take the originally photo inside.

Here you can admire the Last Supper fresco by Leonardo da Vinci. It's stunning and a must-see in Milan. Reservation is required so you should plan it in advance.

The Renaissance church and Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a World Heritage Site, is one you cannot afford to miss during a stay in Milan, if alone for the presence of the Last Supper of Leonardo in the refectory. It is located near the end of the Corso Magenta.

Originally designed by the architect Solari, the church was partially redesigned on command of Ludovico il Moro, probably by the famous Renaissance master Bramante. To him are attributed the apse area, the Renaissance tribune, the cloister and the sacristy.

Especially worth mentioning:

the main door of the church from 1463,
the Our Lady of Grace Chapel with a pre-Leonardo tempera and 7th century altar. The painting was often worshipped during the plague as mentioned by Manzoni in his Promessi Sposi
the monument erected for Ludovico il Moro, topped by a representation of the old facade of the Duomo
the frescoes with the Storie della Passione by Ferrari (visible in high definition here)
the sacristy, reached from the cloister, with engraved cabinets with episodes of the New and Old Testament

A virtual tour is present on the MilanArounder website (flash player required).

To see the refectory with the Last Supper you need to make reservations(way) in advance, see the corresponding entry in this guide.

Completely accessible to the disabled.

Reservations only. Give yourself a good 4 month advanced booking to be on the safe side. Leonardo's The Last Supper, one of the world's greatest masterpieces, well deserves the small inconvenience.
