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.

“couldn't believe our luck”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Didn't realize you need to book so far in advance, but then I read a few trip advisor reviews and
saw thar some times you can get lucky. We got up early and were at the ticket office when it opened at 8am. We asked if there were any cancellations and we were told to wait to the side. About 8.20 the woman said there were 2 tickets for 3pm. We snapped them up. 6.50 euros each! What a day!

“an amazing experience”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Everybody should go visit the Last Supper!It is better to organize the tour in advance by booking online since there's usually a long waiting list. The visit lasts only 15minutes but it is long enough to enjoy a view you cannot see anywhere in the world!

“Good to see but not as impressive as I thought”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a da Vinci painting well worth seeing if you have time. The best way to do so is to take an organised tour because you will struggle to find tickets by yourself. They only take 25 people in every 15 minutes. Some tour organisers have prebooked slots. The painting itself is interesting but we've seen it many times in books and on TV and so it wasn't really wow moment for me.

“Milano must see”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

If you're in Milan this is simply a must see. The premises is expertly managed as each group is led into an area to wait for the group ahead to have their turn in the hall. As the group ahead are all out the hall the door is electronically opened to allow you to enter. In the hall there are two murals; L'ultima cena and a painting of the Jesus crucification. The great hall itself has an amazing atmosphere about it. Although everyone goes to see the last supper the other painting is just as magnificent which we overheard a tour guide say that Da Vinci actually did some input on aswell. I didn't have a tour guide for this trip but as there were two tourguides with other people in the group, this wasn't a problem as we could listen in to what they were saying. Overall, definitely worth a visit!
