Your LivTours Last Supper Tour begins at the centrally located UNESCO World Heritage site of Santa Maria delle Grazie where you will meet your expert private guide.  You will dive right in on this private tour by seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, The Last Supper, with skip the line tickets and exclusive restricted access.  Your LivTours guide will give you an idea of why this painting has won the art world over and give you a sense of da Vinci’s place in the Renaissance. Your LivTours tour will give you direct access to the renowned painting and you will access to the refectory which holds a limited amount of patrons for viewing, so you and a handful of visitors will be privy to exclusive viewing to see the painting close enough to truly experience it in all its glory. This is a once in a lifetime experience which you will keep within your vacation memories for years to come.

Known for its intricate detail and masterful precision, da Vinci’s Last Supper captures the expressive moments of Jesus and his disciples during the moment that Christ reveals he will soon be betrayed by one of his own. The great master’s geometric composition highlights the central figure of Christ with diagonal positioning of characters which all connect to Christ. Learn how most of the brushstrokes in this painting are not original due to the dry plaster technique that da Vinci chose to use, instead of the fresco technique. You will soon understand why this painting is a revered heirloom into the minds of geniuses of the past.

Your tour begins with one of the most important works of art in Milan, now it is time to get to know Milan. You and your guide will walk through the bustling streets of the city center and make your way over to the San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore which is home to numerous 16th century frescoes by Bernadino Luini, Antonio Campi and Simone Peterzano. Hear the life and death of Santa Caterina, whose stories inspired one of the chapels within the church and its Luini frescoes. This is no ordinary church – San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore is often referred to as the Sistine Chapel of the North. A must for art lovers.

Now it is time to live like a local by enjoying an afternoon coffee break, but this will be no ordinary coffee bar.  Your guide will take you to a landmark establishment that has been serving locals coffee for almost 200 years. This elegant coffee bar is decorated with precious green marble floors, while silk fabrics adorn the walls just behind the glass cases filled with typical treats. This is more than just a simple coffee break!

Now that you have had your caffeine fix, it is time to get down to business, literally, your guide accompanies you to the economic pulse of the city – Italy’s only stock exchange. Milan, steeped in history, is also no stranger to modern and contemporary art, but one particular piece is the most controversial – Il Dito, known as “the middle finger”, by Maurizio Cattelan was a temporary sculpture which soon became a permanent fixture.

Your private tour heads off to see one of the most famous optical illusions, quite popular during the Renaissance, the technique was used to give a sense of depth to paintings. Donato Bramante took this to a whole new level in this small church with very big surprises hidden inside. San Satiro is not only an example of skill and technique in artwork, but can also be classified among the “magic” of the city.

Your Milan Last Supper Tour with Duomo will end just in front of one of the most recognized landmarks of Milan, the cathedral which took nearly 600 years to finish – the Duomo of Milan. Dedicated to Santa Maria Nascente, this Roman Catholic church is a perfect example of Italian Gothic architecture, built under Archbishop Antonio da Saluzzo and remains the current seat for the Archbishop of Milan.

Your tour guide will leave you with skip-the-line access tickets to the Duomo and its terraces. But you will get an extensive explanation on what to focus on as you wander the cathedral at your leisure. It is strongly suggested to take advantage of your skip-the-line access to the terraces as they give a 360 degree absolutely breathtaking panoramic view of Milan.

Highly recommend this tour in Milan

"My mum and I did this tour with Elisa and she was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. She showed us secret parts of Milan that we wouldn’t have discovered on our own and educated both of us about art. We felt we were able to get up close and personal with Milan and the tour gave us a good orientation of the city. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone that visits Milan and everyone who wants to see The Last Supper!"

Highlights of Milan

"Our guide in Milan was Lara and she was amazing. She is so knowledgeable and delightful. At the Last Supper, she showed us how each of the disciples were reacting to what Jesus had just said. We made several other stops on our way to Il Duomo including a stop for a coffee and a sweet. Both were quite delicious. I would definitely go there again if I could remember where it was! We have learned taking tours is the best way to get into the venues you are interested in and to get information you would miss even if you got the audio guide. Cutting the long lines is priceless!"

Very enjoyable way to see Milan

"We thoroughly enjoyed our tour in Milan with Livitaly. The tour started with The Last Supper. It is awesome on it's own and our guide helped us appreciate it even more by pointing out subtleties in the painting, 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 very special smaller churches on route to seeing the main Duomo. We had a great time on our tour and strongly recommend it if you are visiting Milan."
