Meet Your Knowledgeable Guide

Your breathtaking visit to Da Vinci’s world-famous fresco begins in Piazza Santa Maria delle Grazie, outside the piazza’s historic church. Here, you’ll meet your expert guide, along with your group of fellow art lovers. Follow your guide into the Cenacolo Vinciano Museum, where you’ll breeze past the crowd with your skip-the-line tickets.

Santa Maria delle Grazie

Santa Maria delle Grazie is a Dominican convent and church complex of immense historical and artistic significance. The construction of this splendid edifice commenced in 1463, following the generous gift of land from Count Gaspare Vimercati to the Dominican Fathers, and it was completed in 1490. The church's architecture beautifully combines elements of Renaissance and Gothic styles, but the true treasure lies within the convent's refectory, where one of the art world's most celebrated masterpieces, The Last Supper, is preserved.

The Refectory

As you explore the complex, your guide will point out the Chapter House and Parlour, where discussions and meetings took place, and that was built by Guiniforte Solari, who who drew inspiration for his design from the Dominican Convent of San Marco in Florence. Towards the north, you'll find the library, while the western side of the convent still houses the refectory. During the bombing in 1943, the refectory suffered significant damage, leading the roof, vaults, and the eastern wall to collapse.

Two paintings, The Last Supper and The Crucifixion by Donato Montorfano, can still be admired on the short sides of the refectory's hall.

Admire Da Vinci’s Famous Fresco

Along with your group, you’ll enjoy 15 minutes with Leonardo da Vinci’s breathtaking fresco. Stare in amazement at The Last Supper’s grandeur, which features a detailed depiction of Jesus Christ’s last meal with his disciples. Painted between 1495 and 1498, this iconic mural depicts the emotional intensity and drama of the biblical event. The mural's composition, innovative use of perspective, and lifelike portrayal of the figures have secured its place as one of Leonardo's greatest achievements. Despite the time and wartime damage, diligent restoration efforts have allowed visitors to behold this extraordinary masterpiece, offering a glimpse into the brilliance of Leonardo da Vinci's artistic prowess and his profound understanding of human emotion.

Your guide will explain the history of the painting, along with stories of the artist himself, as you take in this iconic masterpiece.
