Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1980, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper attracts droves of visitors from around the world every year. Residing in the heart of Milan next to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Da Vinci’s Renaissance masterpiece depicting Jesus and his twelve disciples has undergone constant renovation over the centuries, the last one enduring a period of 21 years ending in 1999.

Their licensed English-speaking guides provide a lively and informative overview of Italian Renaissance art and the history and curiosities surrounding Da Vinci’s painting. From little-known facts (did you know the monastery housing The Last Supper was once an armoury and a prison?) to the maestro’s technique, Veditalia’s dynamic tour guides will give you an up-close look at this magnum opus that cannot be gleaned from a guidebook. With guaranteed access to the front of the line, this 45-minute tour is definitely time well spent on your visit to Milan.
