Description

Our licensed English speaking Tour Guide will take you to discover the worldwide renowned “Cenacolo Vinciano” (The Last Supper), the masterpiece painted by Leonardo da Vinci, located in the refectory of the convent next to the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, one of the most beautiful churches in Italy, and a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Your guide will start with a quick introduction to the Italian Renaissance art and an explanation how it became the most fertile period of painting in the world. You will discover why the Duke of Milan, Lodovico Sforza, known as “il Moro” (the Moor), commissioned Leonardo and not someone else to paint the fresco, and how Leonardo presided over the most important period in the Milanese Renaissance.

Then, thanks to our skip-the-line access guaranteed tickets, you will enjoy the mural fresco created by the genius of Leonardo da Vinci. You will spend fifteen minutes in front of the famous painted wall for an up-close look at it, while your guide will be explaining to you its composition, perspective, use of colors and more. You will observe the astonishment and anxiety in the bodies and faces of the Apostles gathered around Christ, and marvel at the strong expressions Leonardo has been able to reproduce with near-scientific precision.

You will conclude the tour getting to know the curious mysteries related to the fresco, and our guide will be pleased to answer any additional questions you might have.
