Your LivTours Milan Last Supper Tour with City Highlights & Duomo begins in front of Santa Maria delle Grazie, a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose ceilings host frescoes and timeless religious artwork. Adjacent to Santa Maria delle Grazie is the Gothic style convent from the 1400s which houses one of the most revered paintings of the Italian Renaissance – Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper.
The Last Supper is known for its intricate detail and masterful precision and contains numerous layers of symbolism from religious to mathematical and some say it is even known to hold a musical score in its composition. On your semi-private tour, you will have access to the viewing room of the Last Supper with only a handful of other tourists, giving you ample space to take in this awe-inspiring beauty.
After you have had time to absorb the beauty of The Last Supper, your local guide will continue the tour by visiting the San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore to admire the spectacular 16th century frescoes across the ceiling and walls. Painted by Bernardino Luini, Antonio Campi and Simone Peterzano, your guide will tell you about the life and death of Santa Caterina, whose stories inspired one of the chapels within the church and its gorgeous Luini frescoes. Often referred to as the Sistine Chapel of the north, this is a must see for art lovers.
Then it is off to the Piazza degli Affari, the financial district of this industrious city. The economic pulse of the city and country, Milan’s fame for being the financial center of the country gives the city its eclectic mix of fashion, finance and history. Learn about its beginnings that date back to Roman times when Emperor Augustus’ was ruler of the Roman Empire. Without a doubt you will experience a bit of shock as you get catapulted back into the present with Maurizio Cattelan’s controversial public sculpture called L.O.V.E. and also known to the Milanese as ‘Il Dito‘ (the middle finger).
Your LivTours tour guide will lead you through the bustling streets of Milan to see some amazing visual effects in the church of San Satiro. Discover how the same architect who designed St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, Donato Bramante, took a big risk that paid off by using new techniques in painting in this incredible interior. This church is the first time this technique was known to have been used in the world.
Your Milan Walking Tour ends just in front of one of the most recognized landmarks of Milan, the elegant cathedral. Taking nearly 600 years to finish, the Duomo of Milan, is a Roman Catholic church and is the perfect example of Italian Gothic architecture. Set in the heart of the city center of Milan known as the city of Mediolanum during the Roman Empire. Your guide will tell you some of the highlights to see within the Duomo if you choose to later visit it on your own.

All LivTours Semi-Private Group Tours are limited to 6 guests per tour guide. Our commitment to maintaining our uniquely tiny group sizes can sometimes be a little tricky, mathematically speaking. For example, we want to ensure that traveling families and friends can tour together so on rare occasions we may add one or two guests in order to not split groups. On that same note, you may also find yourself on tour with less than six people! We thank you for your understanding and flexibility.
"My wife and I were very pleased that we had booked this tour. It was great to have our entrance to see the Last Supper taken care of (note: there are lots of people waiting to get in) and to have such an expert guide to accompany us throughout the city. Elena was her name and she was charming and an excellent guide who was very enthusiastic about everything that she was showing us. You could tell she enjoys her job! The booking process was very easy and our contact with customer service went very smoothly. All in all, a great experience!"

Very good introduction to Milan
"My husband and I were in Milan for the first time so this tour sounded like the best way for us to see the most important sites including the Last Supper, of course, and Milan's famous cathedral. We were in a group of just 4 people (including us) with a guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly. She shared many insider facts about Milan's history and what it's like to live in modern-day Milan as well. It was a fascinating experience and we highly recommend it for a first visit to Milan."

Walking tour in Milan
"We thoroughly enjoyed our walking tour in Milan which we booked through Livitaly. We started with a visit to see The Last Supper. It is awesome on it's own but our guide helped us appreciate subtleties in the painting even more, When we left there, we walked through the old part of the city where we stopped at this wonderful pastry shop before continuing on. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and took us into some truly special smaller churches on route to seeing the main Duomo from the outside to conclude our tour. We learned about the history of the Duomo and then visited the inside on our own. We really had a great time on this tour."
