Santa Maria delle Grazie tickets, are the only way to access the Last Supper. So if you want to see Da Vinci’s masterpiece mural with your own eyes, you must reserve Last Supper tickets in advance to avoid missing out on one of the best things to do in Milan.
The Santa Maria delle Grazie is not just the building that contains Da Vinci’s most famous painting, it a Milan attraction in itself. Not only is it one of the most impressive buildings of the Lombard Renaissance, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage site. Guiniforte Solari directed the construction of the church, which began in 1466 and took over 20 years to complete. Just six years after it was finished being built, Da Vinci was commissioned by Ludovico il Moro to paint a mural on the refectory wall of the Dominican convent. He spent the next 2 years, from 1496 to 1498, painting the Last Supper which is now considered an icon of Western civilization.
