Often overshadowed by Da Vinci’s groundbreaking mural, the convent’s church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and important attraction in its own right. Explore both the interior and exterior of the building—from its Gothic nave to its elegant cloister—on a private guided tour with skip-the-line access to the church, refectory, and Da Vinci’s mural. Alternatively, many walking tours also include a visit to the church alongside other nearby highlights, including the Duomo Cathedral and Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio.
Things to Know Before You Go
Entry to see The Last Supper is only allowed every 15 minutes for groups of 30 people at a time, and reservations are mandatory. Book your entrance ticket or tour with skip-the-line entry in advance.
The Last Supper tickets include entrance to the entire Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie: church, cloister, and refectory.
Santa Maria delle Grazie is a place of worship, so attire that covers your shoulders and knees is recommended.
The church and refectory are accessible to wheelchairs.
How to Get There
Milano's Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is located between the Cadorna Triennale and Conciliazione metro stations, or you can walk from the Duomo in just 15 minutes.
When to Get There
Santa Maria delle Grazie is busiest in summer, so private tours or skip-the-line tickets must be booked well in advance. The refectory is closed on Mondays and holidays. Entrance is free on the first Sunday of the month but reservations are still required.
The Last Supper Painting
Commissioned by Ludovico Il Moro in the latter half of the 15th century, this mural depicts Christ surrounded by the apostles in a composition featuring perspective and human emotion so revolutionary at the time that it changed the course of Renaissance art.
