One of the most famous paintings in the world, Leonardo da Vinci's Il Cenacolo is a 15th-century mural in the World Heritage-listed convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. This painting is one of the most studied, scrutinized, and satirized works of art ever. It was created for the artist's patron, Ludovico Sforza, and represents the scene of the last supper attended by Jesus and all of his disciples, as told by the Gospel of John. The painting measures 460 cm by 880 cm (180 in by 350 in) and covers an end wall of the convent's dining hall. Though little of the original painting remains today, repeated restoration efforts have prevented the image from completely deteriorating. To see this masterpiece, you must book tickets ahead of time, often months in advance. Go online to explore guided tour options and see available time slots.

We connect on D-Day at 9am rock concert way... all places leave in a few hours. Tour operators rush to the opening to resell them on guided tours; competing with us so ... We did it 4 months in advance on this one. We'll pick up his tickets at the ticket office at least 20 minutes before with his confirmation mail. The hostesses spend their time announcing that there are no places available... what a job... Visit in groups of 25. Very comfortable, no hustle. 15 min and then place in the next group.
È il capolavoro di Leonardo , dipinto sulla parete di gesso ci sono voluti circa quattro anni al genio per completare l' opera e grazie agli innumerevoli restauri possiamo ancora goderne .Il Cenacolo ... more »It is Leonardo's masterpiece, painted on the plaster wall it took about four years to the genius to complete the work and thanks to the countless restorations we can still enjoy it. The Cenacolo is located in the refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie is accessed only by reservation, which you can make both online and by phone the cost with the guide and about 15 euros. It is located in Magenta Course and is a few minutes walk from the Cadorna stop. I recommend a dress that is the place.
