The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

    Church next to the Last Supper
    Church is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It has great history from how it was affected during the World War II to Leonardo Da Vinci’s astounding painting. "The Last Supper" is not inside the church. It's in the museum next door.

    The Last Supper
    Another place to not miss in Milan! The Basilica is beautiful as well, but of course you come to see Da Vinci’s “the last supper!” The silence in the room makes it even more empowering. It is amazing to see the artwork up close and in person. You are not allowed to videotape, but you can take pictures. Definitely get tickets in advance. I lucked out that there was one available ticket left on a tour that included the Duomo and the theater and this. It’s the only reason I got to see. And I am so grateful that I was able to see it so last minute! Definitely plan ahead!

    One of the wonders of the world
    The masin reason to come is the fact that here is where the LAst Supper by da Vinci resides. Once we got into the church and through the many airlocks were we let loose in the refectory. The last supper was as stunning as I had hoped it would be. I was phsyically and emontionally moved by the size and glory of the image. It is one of the wonders of the art world and it is obvious why when you see it. Just get a ticket and go.

    A Milan Highlight
    I am not a religious person by any stretch, to the extent that before looking I didn't even know the Last Supper was in Milan, but saying that I wasn't going to pass up the opportunity to see one of the most important works of art ever. Around 3 weeks before I went online to check availability and there was none, so first tip is to plan well in advance to avoid over paying and disappointment. We had to bite the bullet and book a tour with an outside company which wasn't cheap, but do we regret it, certainly not. The whole setup is very informative and well organised, letting a small amount of people in at a time allowing you to see and read the information. I do recommend going with a tour guide to get the most out of it and getting the history and relevance of this important piece. One of the real highlights of a trip to Milan

    Home of the Last Supper by da Vinci
    Santa Maria Della Gracie is the home of the Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. My wife and I didn’t go inside after viewing the Last Supper. We got some good shots of the building from the garden after exiting the room housing the fresco.

    Completed 1490, refectory contains "Last Supper"painting
    We visited Santa Maria delle Grazie whilst on our guided tour of the Last Supper. Its also known as "Holy Mary of Grace" and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The convent contains the mural of The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, which is in the refectory. This is a famous and worthwhile painting tio view. Tickets can be difficult to obtain. It is a blend of Gothic and Renaissance styles and was built on the site where a chapel with a fresco of the Madonna, known as Madonna delle Grazie, once stood. The construction of the church was started in 1466 and completed in 1490.

    Worthwhile
    Very nice! Would recommend as it was very informative and well structured with time to appreciate the work. Liv tours was great, on time and our guide, he was very easy to understand. There is a longer version of the tour, but we were limited on time.

Visited the church while waiting to see the last supper. It’s lovely inside and we listened to part of the service. Not as ornate as some other churches in Milan.

The church for the painting of the last supper. It is beautiful and peaceful. The history is amazing and they do a great job with the upkeep of the church.

Dominican basilica, shelter for The Last Supper of Leonardo da Vinci
more than 500 years of history, a mix of Romanesque Gothic with Renaissance architectural lines
Bramante added the impressive Renaissance dome
the Duke of Milan, Ludovico il Moro, intented to transform the church in his own family mausoleum, but the history was other
today the church is a peaceful place in a vibrant city, despite of the many visitors, wanting to see the refectory and its masterpiece, The Last Supper of Leonardo da Vinci
a must to visit in Milan
