Da Vinci's Last Supper (Il Cenacolo)
The Last Supper is incredibly popular, and it can be very difficult to get access. In order to preserve the mural, a maximum of 30 visitors are allowed to view the painting at any one time, and only for 15 minutes.
Fortunately, tours can help you lock in those high-demand tickets and customize your experience—spend a day visiting Milan's must-see sites with an art historian guide; opt for an expedited tour with skip-the-line The Last Supper access; or combine The Last Supper with stops at the Milan Duomo, the La Scala Opera House, and Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II.

Things to Know Before You Go
Skip the line with a priority access ticket that allows you to head right into the showroom.
While walking tours are the most popular way to see The Last Supper, you can also explore the city by rickshaw, bicycle, or vintage tram.
From the church, Sforza Castle, Teatro alla Scala, and the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II are within walking distance.
The Last Supper is wheelchair-accessible, and there's ramped access to the church.
How To Get There
The Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie is located on the western outskirts of central Milan between metro stations Cadorna Triennale and Conciliazione. It's a 15-minute walk or a quick taxi ride from the Duomo, but you can also choose a tour that provides round-trip transportation from your Milan hotel.
When to Get There
The Last Supper is accessible Tuesday to Sunday, year-round, between roughly 8am and 7pm. There are always travelers waiting their turn to see this hard-to-visit Renaissance masterpiece. Plan ahead to secure your ticket, and consider booking skip-the-line entry to walk in ahead of the long queues.
Da Vinci's Milan
Often considered the city of Da Vinci—and his adopted hometown—Milan is home to many of the polymath's most famous works, including The Last Supper. After admiring said painting, head to the Ippodromo di Milano to admire a horse sculpture modeled on Da Vinci's drawings; then, visit the Ambrosiana Gallery where you can marvel over his Codex Atlanticus, as well as pieces by Caravaggio and Raphael.
