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.
Before booking this tour, please, write to me.

A Recent Review of this tour

Everything about our tour with Barbara was excellent. Starting with her pre-trip communication up until the time we said goodbye it couldn't have been better. Barbara is very knowledgable and enthusiastic and very accommodating. Great information presented in a fun way. My wife and I loved our time together. Highly recommended.
