EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

Enjoy a special, skip the line tour of Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper’

Visiting The Last Supper is a complicated affair. Located on a wall inside a convent, the mural was long neglected, leading to some damage that authorities are now clambering to undo. As a result, limits have been set on visitors. Only 30 people are allowed inside the climate-controlled room at any time and they may only stay for 15 minutes, after waiting in an air-locked room beforehand. This has made securing ‘Last Supper’ tickets a complete nightmare. Then again, once you have your tickets and are inside a silent room with only 29 other people, admiring the huge painting (almost 9 meters long), it more than repays every effort.

With pre-reserved, skip the line tickets we guarantee that you’ll visit The Last Supper on our Best of Milan tour. And you’ll do so with an expert art historian to help you get the most from this special visit. You’ll get a rundown on the painting before you enter, so you’re prepped to make the most of your time.

Then move around the room with your guide and small group of only 14 people or fewer, admiring its incredible depth and perspective, learning about the characters in the painting and hearing why Leonardo da Vinci is so famous for his work. You’ll probably only see this masterpiece once in your lifetime (particularly since it’s disintegrating at such an alarming rate) so make it count!

Enjoy breath-taking views and incredible architecture on the rooftop of Milan Duomo

The last stop of the day is a special one – the Duomo. The largest church in Italy, it took almost six centuries to complete, but it was worth every day. Your guide will teach you about the history of this great structure from the Duomo square; pointing out different architectural features and characters you may not have noticed on your own. You'll go inside the Duomo together to explore more, and even underground to see the basilica's battisterro.

Then comes the highlight of your walking tour. Our Milan tour includes tickets to the Duomo rooftop, where you’ll be able to walk the whole way around the structure on three different levels to admire its arches and sculptures up close and personal. Along with Paris’s Notre Dame, this is easily the most fascinating church roof in the world.

Your tickets are flexible so choose to visit directly or take a break and come back later at the best times recommended by your guide.

Our Best of Milan tour shines a light on those special places that make Milan a city like no other. With small groups of only 14 people or fewer throughout, your experience will be intimate, while your local tour guide will be easy to chat with and question.

This is the second tour we have done with your company and we would highly recommend your company to anyone who asked! Thank you so much for wonderful information and a great day!
Paolo was our guide and he was very informative and his English was excellent!
Laura was a very good host. Her knowledge was excellent and she represented the Company in a very professional manner. We went home a lot more informed than before we started the day. A great day overall. Thanks:

Important information

Before you travel, please read our important notes about possible disruptions & site entrance requirements

Please note that ‘The Last Supper’ is held inside a still-active convent and, as such, it is required that all visitors cover their knees and shoulders during their time inside. Although we travel in a group of 14 during our ‘Last Supper’ visit, there will usually be a full 30 people inside the room at the time.

I forgot the name of our guide but she was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable, which makes her a very good guide! She had a sense of humour, too! Would wanna do that tour again. The Last Supper was the best painting i've seen in my trip to Italy and France.

We took several Walks of Italy tours on our recent trip to Italy ( Rome, Florence, Milan) I was very impressed with the knowledge and personalities of each of our guides. Each was passionate about their tours and you could tell that they enjoyed their jobs. We learned so much about the things we were seeing. Loved the small groups and the radios made it easy to hear. Would highly recommend your company to anyone traveling to Italy .

The tour was very enjoyable and very informative. An excellent value when we had so little time in Milan.
I wanted to email you and let you know that our guide was absolutely lovely for this tour. I want to say that her name was Christine. It was the Last Supper Milan tour on May 10th in the afternoon. Our guide was super knowledgeable. She made the tour fun and charming and informative. She was kind and helpful to everyone. It was our last tour of a wonderful two weeks in Italy and it couldn't have been a nicer close to our visit.
Great tour. In addition to seeing the Last Supper and the Duomo, we got to take a lovely walk through a beautiful section of Milan. Christina was a friendly, funny, knowledgeable guide. She also gave my friend and I tips for how to get to other parts of the city on our own and her suggestion worked out perfectly.
I don’t usually take tours but I really wanted to see the Last Supper and it was the only way to get a ticket. However I was surprised how much I enjoyed the tour, our guide was excellent, really knew her stuff and was genuinely passionate about art and her city.
He was so knowledgeable and passionate.
Mirella was charming, cheerful, informative and in general delightful. How lucky we were to have a guide with a PhD. She has poise and sophistication and is a lovely person. Thank you!
Considering it was in fact little more than a tour of the duomo and admission to the last supper,I would describe it as very expensive.
Our guide was wonderful and informative. She provided helpful and detailed information about DaVinchi, the Last Supper, the Duomo, and the history of Milano. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and personable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and will recommend your tour services to our friends and family in the United States. James and Jeanne Rowlee
Valeria was excellent - I thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Please thank Valeria again for me. I was the lady on my own on this trip.
Christina was our guide and she was excellent. The Last supper is incredible.
Our guide was spectacular. Loved every minute. Thanks.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. A very educational 3 hours. Lara is an extremely knowledgeable guide. Would definitely do another tour based on this experience.
Amazing guides and service will recomend to friends and family, thank you
Lara did a fine job. I was the "one" in the group most likely to be a distraction & she handled everything with professional grace.
Our guide Lara was fantastic, she was very friendly and informative. It was the first walking tour that we have ever done and we were very impressed. We would recommend this tour.
Christina, our guide, was excellent. She did a great job.
Wonderful tour,thoroughly recommend

Thanks to Laura for an excellent tour and to the whole Walks of Italy team for great organisation. I can highly recommend Walks of Italy - have now booked with you 3 times, (twice last year in Rome), and now in Milan. All 3 experiences have been first class and excellent value for money.

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed Paolo's tour of the Last Supper and Duomo. It was informative and engrossing. Paolo kept us engaged and answered all emquiries in an informed manner. The use of earpieces was perfect as we were able to hear his commentary without any problem. I look forward to my walk tour in Venice tomorrow. Ciao Denise
The highlight of our trip to Milan was the Last Supper and Duomo tour with Valeria. Simply put she was the best guide we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Welcoming, friendly, pleasant and so informative. She had boundless energy and enthusiasm and her knowledge of the Last Supper and Duomo was outstanding. On our walk between the Last Supper and the Duomo Valeria constantly provided an interesting and informative dialogue. A truly educational tour that took our visit to Milan to another level. Thanks Valeria! you were brilliant!
Good tour and very informative. Thank you!

We are so glad we decided to book the tour. I had tried to buy tickets to the last supper online but couldn't get any for the dates we were in Milan. However the tour was great because not only did we see the last supper but the guide was very knowledgeable and we really enjoyed walking with her through the streets to the Duomo and hearing her interesting commentary. Going up on the Duomo roof was a hilight and we also came back the next day and went inside the Cathedral which was breathtaking. Thankyou, we really enjoyed the tour.

This is my 6th Walks of Italy tour- I took 4 tours in 2012,! I love your tours and always recommend them to friends who are coming to Italy. The guide was excellent like always and I did not know this tour also included the cathedral and the archeological site- I was very pleased since I went there the day before and did not learn much from the audio guide the cathedral charge for.
Lara was excellent guide very informative.The only issue was we had to join a large queue with everyone else to go through security.while I understand these measures are necessary the website states skip the lines.Lara did go off and discuss the issue with someone and after some time we were able to enter via the cathedral terrace .
The guide Valeria was exceptionally passionate about the subjects on the tour, and the experience was all the better for it. She had an in depth knowledge and was very informative. There was a long queue to get into the Duomo, because of increased security, but she continued to keep the group's attention; including giving general advice on things to do in Milano. Highly recommended!!!
Mirella, our tour guide, is very knowledgeable about art history. We love her story-telling style of narratives while guiding us throughout the Best of Milan tour. The security checking process at Duomo was extremely thorough and made the entrance queue moving very slowly. Therefore, we were so glad we had chosen this tour because it included the Duomo entrance ticket which allowed us to queue up in a separate line which was much shorter.
After touring some of Italy's other cities using guidebooks, we were amazed by the value Valeria added to our time in Milano. She was knowledgeable, personable and engaging and truly enriched the experience on our only full day in the City. We had a bit of bonus time with her, as security measures at the Duomo had been heightened after a skit on an TV Satire show...Valeira took everything in stride, kept us informed, and never ran out of interesting things to share about the city and the sites we saw. She even added a bonus stop along the way that got us out of the rain! We'd highly recommend Valeria and Walks of Italy in the future.
The tour was awesome. Cristina was an excellent guide. She enthusastic and very knowledgable. I can't imagine a better way to see the Last Supper, Milan and the Duomo. Thanks!!
Very informative guide who did a great job filling the time while we were waiting in line to enter the Duomo.
Our guide was amazing.She was so knowledgeable about the history of Milan and full of fun and interesting facts not just about the sights we saw, but everything we passed that was of interest. She was just awesome!!

Valeria was wonderful She was very informative Loved to answer questions Never too busy to answer our questions We did not get to see the inside of the Duomo as the skip the line was way too long Some members of our tour were visibly upset but there was nothing our guide could do She was fabulous
