We found this place by accident. We really wanted to see the Last Supper and all the "Skip the Line" tours were sold out except the Art Tour. We said why not try a little extra culture and we were glad we did. This place was AMAZING. Our guide Charles through VIATOR tours was very informative and enthusiastic about all... More

You are in for a treat here. One of the most amazing man-made things I have ever seen.This is like a bunch of fresco's that coalesced into a church rather than the other way round. The whole thing is under renovation but that makes it even more interesting because you get to wander around the scaffolding and see the restoration... More

This is a must visit in Milan. The architecture and the frescoes are amazing and worth searching this church out to see. Make sure to go in both the front entrance and the back entrance through the museum. When we were there in Aug. 2014, there was some scaffolding up, but that shouldn't deter anyone from going. There is still... More

If you just visit the street side of this church then you have missed the best bit. To access the main part you need to go into the museum next door and through that into the rear of the church. Quite amazing. There is a sign on the door, but it is not very obvious.

I was very curious about this church why it's the #1 attraction in Milan on TA, so after this expectation I was disappointed a little bit. The church inside is under reconstruction, partly closed. When it will be ready, it will be beautiful for sure, but now, in this state there are many more much better attractions in Milan. But... More

This place is a small hidden jewel located near then Milan Cathedral. There is no entrance fee, except for the archeological museum. However, the main part is the church itself, including many very nice paintings everywhere on the walls and the roofs. I would recommend that place as a top attraction in Milan.

missed the best bits of this Church due to refurbishment. What we could see was excellent. Only 3 star, but having seen photos of it without the scaffold, it is probably a 5 star visit. Just be warned and check in advance.

Typical of the underdog that everyone roots for, this church is good enough to be raved about but if you thought it was the best thong to see in Milan, you would be mistaken.

You wouldn't expect it from the outside, but the church is very pretty and light on the inside. It has a nice ceiling and beautiful paintings.
