Owner description: Tickets to view Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper go on sale three months in advance and sell out quickly, although it's sometimes possible to buy tickets closer to your visit. If you don't manage to purchase tickets on your own, consider visiting The Last Supper as part of a tour. It's much more expensive, but worth it if you don't want to miss out.

“Call Vivaticket if no tickets on the website”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2011

This morning I called the official booking line of Vivaticket (+39 02 92800360). The English speaking operator was very helpful and I was able to book 2 tickets for July 12 even after no tickets available online. 8E each (no tours available) instead of 35 through another outlet...

“Leonardo's Experiment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2011

Book your ticket as far ahead as you can, or you won't see this seminal work of art.
Leonardo's experiment with "dry frescoe" started to deteriorate as soon as he had completed 4 years of tinkering. You will enter with 25 others for 15 minutes exactly, guided in by automatic doors - feels a bit like Maxwell Smart. Study the faces hard, and try not to let Dan Brown's opinions colour yours. Still, the disciple on Jesus' left side as you face the image does not look male to me! Could this be Mary Magdalene as Leonardo envisioned her? If you are interested in Biblical history, stories, lore, or art, then this is a must visit site. If not, then it's a lot of bother for a short viewing.

“Really Special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2011

A really well managed site of significance. Well known and very impressive fresco in its original site. Well worth seeing as you can see what the fuss is about.

“Frustrating booking process, masterful work”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2011

We enjoyed our visit to the artwork but beware there are lots of children and tour groups. Ours was particularly noisy which was frustrating given the price €8 each, and the 15 minutes maximum viewing time. Also we found it frustrating to try and book over the phone - an online booking form would be much better. Also, we recommend to only get one audio guide per couple, as it's quite pricey and you can listen to it before you get in. The information in there isn't a lot different from what I'd already read and heard.

“Beware Viator and its 'skip the queue' antics”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2011

This is more a review of the shambolic agent rather than the attraction per se.
Visitor numbers to the former refectory that houses the Last Supper are strictly limited. Tour operators block book slots to incorporate access as part of an itinerary. We attempted to buy a 'skip the line' tour through the on line agent Viator. We would strongly advise caution with this outfit. First they double charged our CC despite the site clearly indicating that the first transaction was invalid. Second we received both a confirmation email and later the prinable voucher reconfirming our details and providing meeting details etc. On the strength of this we made our travel arrangements to Milan for our last minute 2 day trip.
The next day we received the curtest of emails from Viator saying that the seemingly confirmed tour was unabailable without any explanation. Viator offered 2 other dates one of which was a week later. Due to time issues we tried to phone Viator. This experience together with their utter inability to address these two problems really brought home what a mickey mouse set up it is. Useless is a huge understatement. In the end we had to go direct to the Italian tour operator Dark Rome who were able to help. We got no explanation or refund of loss from Viator and the email responses are a study in buck passing and cant. Shame on them.
In the end we enjoyed the tour no thanks to Viator. Make that 'Dire Tour'. Book with them at your peril and not if you want to see Milan and its works of art. If time constrained book a tour but go direct to the operator as we did.
