Tour Description
Imagine stepping into the heart of Milan, a city that reveres the genius of Leonardo da Vinci, and embarking on a journey that not only showcases his masterpieces but also immerses you in his world. The highlight of this walking tour is the elusive 'Last Supper' – tickets that are nearly impossible to secure unless you book well in advance of your travel dates. 

Feel the anticipation build as you walk with a local art historian, whose passion for Leonardo's work is contagious. As they unveil the intricate details of his life and his profound relationship with Milan, you'll find yourself captivated by stories of his ingenuity. The highlight, a visit to the 'Last Supper', nestled in the serene Santa Maria delle Grazie, is not just a viewing; it's an encounter with history, where every brushstroke tells a tale of its own.

As you stand before this iconic painting, allow the insights you’ve been provided by our expert to enrich your understanding, transforming your viewing into a moment of deep appreciation. Even if, due to venue restrictions, our expert needs to step back to allow other travelers to get a closer view, your connection with Leonardo's work will be profound.

Your experience continues at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, where Leonardo's sketches and the 'Portrait of a Musician' await. Here, you'll enjoy not just the art, but the stories that bring each piece to life.  If your tour takes place on Wednesday when Pinacoteca Ambrosiana is closed, we’ll explore the Sforza Castle Museum, where your journey through Leonardo's legacy remains uninterrupted, as this venue is deeply connected to his remarkable life story.

You'll explore not only Leonardo's art but his impact on Milan's very fabric—from the Duomo, a testament to architectural brilliance, to the Navigli canals, where his engineering prowess still echoes. By the time your tour concludes, you'll leave with more than just memories; you'll carry a profound understanding and appreciation for Leonardo's timeless bond with Milan, feeling inspired and connected to the very essence of this great artist's life and work.

I’ve read that tickets to see Last Supper in person can be nearly impossible to secure. How does your team handle this? 
Securing tickets to The Last Supper, undoubtedly one of Milan's most sought-after attractions can be quite challenging due to high demand and limited availability. Please place your tour booking as far in advance of your travels as possible. 

However, our dedicated team is well-equipped to handle this situation. Here's what to expect: 
  • Your tour will not be confirmed until venue tickets have been secured.
  • Our team continuously monitors ticket availability for The Last Supper.

Where Will I Meet My Context Tour Guide?

This was my first tour with Context, and it did not disappoint. Giacomo was a wonderful guide and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Knowledgeable, professional and engaging, he shared insights into Leonardo, the Last Supper, and the Italian Renaissance that I didn’t necessarily get from my own reading or wandering about on my own. He quickly adjusted to my personal interest, church architecture, and made a quick unplanned stop along the way to show me a remarkably decorated church attached to a former convent. Having a trained art historian like Giacomo as a tour guide is absolutely the way to go. A great introduction to Milan and a great introduction to Contest Travel.
Excellent and informative tour. Fiamma was so knowledgeable!
Great Experience with this private tour. Got to learn in-depth information that wouldn't have happened without this experience and our guide. Highly recommend this experience!
