5 Reasons to Visit Santa Maria Delle Grazie

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.

Leonardo Da Vinci's The Last Supper

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 Facade

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 Nave

The central nave and the adjacent aisles, with their highly ornate and exquisitely frescoed arches, are splendid examples of Late Gothic architecture.

The Dome

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 Cloister of Frogs

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.

What People Are Saying About Santa Maria delle Grazie

The guide was absolutely stellar! Many thanks!

I would have appreciated a child discount for my two children as it got rather pricey at the end of purchasing 3 adult tickets for a 2-hour tour. All was enjoyable and educative though. Thank you!

Brilliant tour with excellent and entertaining guide

Fabio was truly knowledgeable and the time just flew. His English was impeccable and his humour infectious. I was very impressed with the whole package.

Excellent tour, very knowledgeable guide.

This was a great tour and a a great way to see the city of Milan. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The group is a little large and at times the heaadaets that were provided had a lot of static but otherwise it was great!

Unmissable tour, moving, informative, humorous and memorable, perfect!

I do hope I have the name of our guide correct - Charles? It was an excellent tour, but wish I'd paid attention to his name at the outset. It was excellent, detailed, informative, appropriate humour, respectful, moving, memorable. If I had the chance to tour Italy, this chap would be my choice! This company in fact as we did did several excellent tours with exceptional guides. In terms of logistics, this tour company get it right, meeting point , signs, timing, information - all spot on - thank you so much, you made our trip special.
