Tickets to view Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper go on sale three months in advance and sell out quickly, although it's sometimes possible to buy tickets closer to your visit. If you don't manage to purchase tickets on your own, consider visiting The Last Supper as part of a tour. It's much more expensive, but worth it if you don't want to miss out.

My wife and I had no idea what to expect with our visit to see the "Last Supper". First of all, it is not a canvas painting, but a portrait done directly on a wall with a technique which included mixing paint in with mortar. If you go there, expect a very structured approach to your entry and viewing. You... More

Nice when it reopened that the visits were reserved and only for a maximum of 30 persons given a half of an hour in silence to take it all in. This is Leonardo's finest painting but I prefer most the Muta in Urbino of Raffael over his Mona Lisa !!

When yo see pictures of the Last Supper you don't imagine it to be as awe striking as it is. It covers one whole wall and is breath-taking. Highly recommend it. You can buy tickets at the ticket office for 10 euros instead of booking through a tour group.

It's expensive and hard to get tickets but once you see it it's all forgotten. A truly marvelous painting even in the state it's in after more than 500 years. Just be sure to book well in advance as the pressure for tickets is huge. I booked three months in advance and there wasn't much to choose from already then.... More

Unfortunately for us, we couldn't get tickets to see the painting during our visit, as bookings were required months in advance. We still dropped by hoping that there could be some last minute tickets, but no luck for us. The building itself was small, ordinary and out of the way from other attractions in Milan, but we will be back... More

Of course it is great to see, but it is REALY HARD to get tickets, and you must get them months in advance. Direct seller is vivaticket and you must also pay a guide, italian or english, whichever they choose to give you. But, yea...

I visited the Santa Maria della Grazie church decades ago, when you could but tickets same day to view the Last Supper frescoe...it has since been expertly restored to close of its original splendor. Actually, the painting on the opposite wall is more impressive, but its not the work of Michelangelo.

We booked a 7:45 am tour through Musement, but it was worth getting up early to see this amazing mesterious work of art. You get only 15 mins to be in the room, but its definitely worth the effort.

I'm not an art buff, but to see the size of this artwork and the detail that is still visible was quite an experience. It avoided bombings and Napoleon and is still with us despite being painted with 'short term' paints. Go and see it if you can, we booked with a 2 hour art tour and was worth it!

To start with, I did not know how big the "fresco" is. For all of those who may not know, this is not a painting on canvas, it is painted on a wall, that is why it is called a "fresco". It is huge, the feeling I had was indescribable, the painting is amazing and being in front and so... More
