One must visit this lovely Dominican convent. Not only is the design lovely but it is also a UNESCO World Heritage site. After visiting the basilica make sure and visit the Last Supper! It is much larger than I expected and if possible, get a...More
If you want to do this you should book your viewing when they first come out and that is 3 months in advance. Only a specified number of people are allowed in at a time. My son and I were able to get tickets by...More
People don't seem to realize that you can't walk up and expect to get a ticket that day. The tours are limited by size and only 15 minutes per group. Do the math. You can't just show up. It was a pinch me moment seeing...More
Maintained by the Dominicans, the church traces its roots during the renaissance and next to it is Leonardo da Vinci’s ‘The Last Supper.’ Went inside while waiting for our tour and what a welcome surprise. Old paintings and images, old church. Very similar to other...More
The tour operator gave us a complete history of Leonardo da Vinci's work with Ludovico Sforza, painting the Last Super as part of the renovations of the Santa Maria delle Grazie Church.

Santa Maria delle grazie is a church and Dominican convent where you can see Leonardo's famous mural The Last Supper. The church is included in the UNESCO World Heritage sites list. To view Leonardo's work it is worth buying tickets up to 6 weeks in...More
The church where Leonardo's the last supper resides. The entry is controlled. Though the original painting had been retouched so many times that very little of Leonardo's original brush strokes remain. Only few people per 15-20 minutes are allowed inside. Tickets are sold out months...More
Just in the same year, 1492, when Columbus "discovered" America the lord of Milan, duke Ludovico Sforza (called Ludovico il Moro), commissioned, probably Donato Bramante, to rebuild the apse and the cloister. The interior of the basilica is worth the visit not only for the...More
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.

After our viewing of the Last Supper and a visit of the Church & Museum, are there other interesting places nearby that we could & should think about? -- Interesting shops, other churches, other cultural or architectural landmarks, something more current & of the present, etc.? We will appreciate any pointers you can provide. We hate to be so single-minded about seeing the Last Supper to the point of missing our immediate surroundings!

And of course the Castello Sforzesco and the Parco Sempione are not far away.
close to train station and tourist attractions? (4 Replies)
I will be in Milan for one day in Sept. I am coming from Bern and departing to Florence via train. What area of the city should I stay in to be close the train stations and the tourist attractions (specifically Duomo and Santa Maria delle Grazie)? Is it possible to be centrally located to both? Also, if possible I would prefer to stay away from the business sector b/c I have heard it basically shuts down at night. Thanks!

You can stay in the Brera area. The station is very close and there are a lot of entertainments
