Top sights in Milan
Mainly known as the home of Leonardo Da Vinci's world-famous The Last Supper, Santa Maria Delle Grazie in Milan is a magnificent church and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Here are 5 reasons to visit this stunning and eclectic hybrid of architectural styles.
Few paintings are as iconic as Da Vinci's 15th century mural. Though nearly destroyed on many occasions, thanks to a recent restoration, it can now be admired in all its splendor.
The exterior demonstrates the church's mix of architectural styles: while the sober terracota facade exemplifies the Lombard tradition, the lavish entrance is in Renaissance style.
The central nave and the adjacent aisles, with their highly ornate and exquisitely frescoed arches, are splendid examples of Late Gothic architecture.
Designed by the eminent Renaissance architect Donato Bramante, this remarkable dome is camouflaged on the outside – its hemisphere is only apparent from the church's interior.
The lovely garden of this inner cloister, named after the statues that spout water into the fountain, is ideal for a picturesque breather from the bustle of Milan.
If you want to see The Last Supper, it's necessary to reserve tickets ahead of time. Visits are limited to 15-minute viewing slots. Tickets sell out fast, so you should plan well in advance – in the high season, for example, they sometimes sell out 3 months in advance!
As mentioned above, the cloister is a lovely spot to take a break and renew your energies. If you want to visit the cloister but mass is ongoing, don't worry, you can also access the cloister from a side door at the back of the church.

What people are saying about Santa Maria delle Grazie
As people who appreciate art, history and God in our lifes, we found our guide Donatella passionate about her work with such knowledge that made our experience unique, my wife and I thank you.
A fabulous and informative tour on everything you never knew about Milan and didn’t know you really wanted to know. Our guide, Katia, was joyful and a font of information. This started with the Last Supper which was breathtaking but continued in depth into Milan history. Loved it. We will return.
Davide’s introduction was excellent and gave us the right information before going in. Then followed with more and put Leonardo’s contribution in perspective. We also enjoyed the tour to and around the Sforza castle and finally the San Giovanni maggiore was also excellent. Heartily recommend it. Not really related to the tour but on the walk to the castle I was impressed by Davide’s stopping and waiting for green lights for pedestrians. Also the audio equipment worked really well and was essential especially on the walk
The guide was very well informed and jovial in style. The headsets meant we could hang back and not have to swarm around the guide - making it more enjoyable.
Very informative, especially the info on the Last Supper as the 15 minutes of viewing was not enough Also the ''surprise extra''
