One of the most famous paintings in the world, Leonardo da Vinci's Il Cenacolo is a 15th-century mural in the World Heritage-listed convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie. This painting is one of the most studied, scrutinized, and satirized works of art ever. It was created for the artist's patron, Ludovico Sforza, and represents the scene of the last supper attended by Jesus and all of his disciples, as told by the Gospel of John. The painting measures 460 cm by 880 cm (180 in by 350 in) and covers an end wall of the convent's dining hall. Though little of the original painting remains today, repeated restoration efforts have prevented the image from completely deteriorating. To see this masterpiece, you must book tickets ahead of time, often months in advance. Go online to explore guided tour options and see available time slots.

In a word, Da Vinci's 'Last Supper" is magnificent in every respect. You will be in awe looking at a fresco that is almost 30 feet wide and 18 feet high, directly opposite from another fresco of Da Vi... more »
Microwaved food, prepared with minimal effort. Since our Italian isn’t so great we got the Tourist treatment. Small Italian beers for 5eu and a big fat service fee. Overpriced and negligent, never again.
Had lunch with a friend in this bar I found the staff to be exquisite and helpful. Great food and adequate prices. The owner welcomes you and puts you at ease in every way. You see that they bring passion! Recommended. If you are from those parts stop!
