Owner description: 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.

This magnificent "afresco" is deteriorating by time and might not exist in the next decades, so if you have the chance to see this work, just do it.
Buy your ticket in the internet 2 months in advance, because they only allow 25 people at a time to visit, in 15 minutes interval.

It's a bit difficult to reserve from other countries so I asked my hotel staff before hand.
I really appreciated her.
It only costs like 8-10Euro per person (without tour agency).
this is so amazing. I couldn't take my eyes from it.
I was so impressed.
just so amazing, that's all i want to say.

Went with a guided tour and only small groups allowed in at one time. To be honest, tour was too expensive but we could not get tickets on line. Fantastic and larger than I thought. Glad to have seen it! No pictures or video allowed.

An incredible experience unlike visiting the Mona Lisa at the Lourve. Imagine walking into the very place where Leonardo da Vinci painted The Last Supper! The exhibit is very well-maintained with high security and updated technology to limit the introduction of foreign particles onto the painting. For this reason, visits are only allowed by reservation. Plan to book at least three months ahead if you want to pay the regular price. However, many online companies sell tickets for about $25 where you can usually get a reservation in a few days - they sell out fast! Visits inside are limited to 15 minutes with no reentry and photography is strictly prohibited. Groups of 25 people are allowed every 15 minutes. Well worth it.

Amazing experience! Beautiful fresco :-) The Last Supper (Italian: Il Cenacolo or L'Ultima Cena) is a late 15th century mural painting by Leonardo da Vinci in the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria della Grazie, Milan. The work is presumed to have been commenced around 1495 and was commissioned as part of a scheme of renovations to the church and its convent buildings by Leonardo's patron Ludovico Sforza, Duke of Milan. The painting represents the scene of The Last Supper of Jesus with his disciples, as it is told in the Gospel of John, 13:21. Leonardo has depicted the consternation that occurred among the Twelve Disciples when Jesus announced that one of them would betray him.
