Last Supper guided tour - upon request and to be confirmed every time


As far as we are aware, Leonardo's first commission in Milan came from the church of San Francesco Grande, the contract was signed on 25 April 1483 and represents the earliest proof of his presence in Milan and he painted the Virgin on the Rocks. In a letter of Ludovico il Moro - effective ruler of Milan - Leonardo offered his services as a military, as an engineer, architect, musician and only last as a painter and sculptor.
During the private guided walking tour we will go over remarkable records of the presence of Leonardo da Vinci in Milano focusing on them, e. g. the Portrait of a Musician, the Atlantic Code, the famous Last Supper a large wall painting in the Refectory of the domenican monastery of Santa Maria delle Grazie, the decorations inside the Sforza fortress and last but not least his vineyard situated opposite the church in the garden of Casa Atellani.

The tour is available every day except on Mondays.

A Recent Review of this tour

We contracted with Barbara through Tours by Local on two consecutive days. For both, our review is the same: outstanding. Barbara Quarello was a pure joy: informative, outgoing, and a constant source of information and insight. We customized our tour in advance by email, and felt she did everything she could to optimize our time in Milan and to get us to everything we most wanted to see. Then she added to each location with warmth, history, and context. We have no reservations in recommending her.
