The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

The Last Supper is a treasure for its historical importance but I thought it mediocre at best. You do get to spend enough time looking at it and taking non-flash photos but I was ready to go pretty quickly. Too bad, too, as I had really looked forward to it. Had I to do it again, would probably have skipped it.

Think it twice before you book. In a classic treatment of customers. Once you have bought your tickets and in the event you need to do the smallest change (for example due to COVID positive which invites for a change of date) , you will find out you do no have any phone number to call o you are transferred to endless forms until you just give up

Since the online booking I was not impressed with the warning saying something like "if you come less than 15 minutes before your booking appointment you will not be allowed to enter and you will loose your booking without refund". We arrive well in advance just for waiting to go into the ticket office and queuing to get the proper ticket (but why didn't allow us to print it once we booked online??) Once inside we when inside the only room to see, a room that you cannot visit for more than 15-20 minutes as the staff will invite you to leave. No tour guide present like when I went in 2009, no explanation about the painting. The light were very poor, the painting itself is very well consumed and despite I consider Leonardo da Vinci the biggest genius in our history, I was thinking why this wall painting was so incredibly famous and why we had to pay €15 for looking only at one painting while the other museums in the world for the same price, or maybe some extra euros, offer the tour that you can enjoy hundred of masterpieces and incredible objects from any age.
At the exit, we were left stuck in a small pre-exit room with all the 30 partecipants for several minutes, a real assembly situation, not good in this period of pandemic. I asked the staff to let me out but they didn't, I was so disappointed by this. Never never never again. For me: money wasted for a very disorganized museum

Booked a ticket online for November 2021 as soon as they became available at the end of October. My ticket was for 9.15am so I arrived at the ticket office early and was able to pick up my ticket once I showed my email booking as well a copy of my ID.

I then went over to the museum door and joined a small queue. At 9.05am we went into the museum and went through a number of glass doors. Finally at 9.15 we went into the main room itself to view The Last Supper.

It truly is an amazing experience and one you won’t forget. Pictures are allowed and there was plenty of space in the room to move around. The viewing time for 15 mins and then we left via the book shop.

This is the Last Supper by Da Vinci and worth every cent. We took a guided tour which we thought was fantastic.

Il Cenacolo is definitely a must-see in Milan, in Italy, in the world. You may be surprised that it is actually a mural painting, but this is another reason why you should visit the museum and see it: Da Vinci created a composition that also involves the hall on whose wall the painting stands. The technique, the details, the geometry, together they present a masterpiece. Wonderful!

Although very mutilated, still very worth while to see. The work is exceptional, even today. One can still see the brilliance of the paintor.

Amazing experience. It is definitely worth a visit. You need to reserve in advance. The tour is short. Highly recommended!
