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.

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!!

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.

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.

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
Wonderful tour and very friendly and knowledgeable guide.
I had expected to be part of a group of up to 12 people but was very pleasantly surprised to discover I was the only one booked on this particular tour! Mirella is knowledgeable, friendly and engaging as a guide and to have her to myself for the entire tour was a real treat. The tour covered all I had hoped for and more, especially as the weather was beautiful and the views from the Duomo rooftop were spectacular. Our time viewing The Last Supper was special, and there were only a few others there at the same time which was great. All in all, a great tour and I would recommend it to others.
All 6 of us were very happy about the tour. Lara did a great job! She was knowledgeable and excellent!

Everything was good. Fiamma did a great job. Clear instructions to keep the group together. Good explanation on the history of the sites visited and also as we go along the way. She was also ready to answer any questions asked. Having a small group (less than 12) kept the tour enjoyable. Thanks for the great time.

Our guide Lara was sensational. Very informative and entertaining tour. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone. Thank you Eric Clark
The fact the Duomo was closed for the morning of our tour was handled well, with the 3-day ticket and alternative church inclusion proving more than satisfying. Valeria was wonderful - so passionate, humorous and informative; it was sad to say goodbye!

This tour was highly recommended by The Five Foot Traveler blog, and we read her review on her various social media sites! It did not disappoint!
Fabulous walk through the old center of Milan. Really enjoyed the opportunity to take (non flash) photos of The Last Supper. Paolo was extremely knowledgeable about the painting and the Duomo.
Valarea has amazing knowledge, passion, insight, and enthusiasm. She is amazing and she made the art come alive
Valeria was a perfect guide! Thank you a lot
Lara was a fantastic guide - so informative and interesting. We had 3 children with us and she even took us past an ice cream shop on the tour to keep them happy! Thank you Lara!
Lara was great! We really enjoyed the tour. Very informative and engaging. (And we appreciate her bringing Massimo Gelato to our attention during our walk through Milan to the Duomo -- we love it.)
Valerie was funny and extremely knowledgeable. Great guide. Even it was one of the hottest day in Milan for an outdoor walk, her stories and information made the weather much more palatable.
Lara was exceptional! Friendly, knowledgeable, funny and passionate about history in its purest form. Loved every minute!
Mirella was fantastic!! Very well informed and personable. She patiently addressed our questions and provided helpful advice and directions. I gained much more understanding from her descriptions making the tour most memorable. I would highly recommend her and Walks of Italy to my friends. Great organization!!!
Laura was a fantastic guide and companion. Pleasant, well informed about everything, she was a joy!
