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
Booking the tickets over the website was easy. The guide was easy to spot and we got our Cathedral tickets, a great bonus. Anyone going to Milan should absolutely take some time to see the Last Supper!
The visit started on time. We were 20 people and were very comfortable to see the painting. The guide was very enthusiastic about the painting and its history. This certainly added a personal touch to the visit.
Fabio did a great job educating and cutting through the myths such as Mary Magdalene myth stemming from Dan Brown books - excellent, highly recommended
Locations provided on tour were good. Guide historically learned, answered questions and was courteous.. Would tour again w/him for sure. Wish more time at castle but tour with company again .
We really enjoyed the guide, we did leave early though because it was so cold outside. There was a lot more outside than we had anticipated, so if you're doing this in winter months, be sure to dress warmly!!!
