Santa Maria delle Grazie & The Last Supper

Few paintings are as globally renowned as The Last Supper, da Vinci's evocative interpretation of the biblical scene. Located in the UNESCO–listed Santa Maria delle Grazie church, the magnificent fresco is open to the public by guided tour only.

How to visit: Choose a private, small-group, or group tour; opt for skip-the-line access to avoid the long queues; or upgrade to a private VIP tour and enjoy a special after-hours visit.

Navigli District

Navigli is one of Milan's most atmospheric districts, with its scenic canals and lively cafés facing out over the waterfront. The neighborhood also has a fascinating link to the city's most famous artist—Leonardo da Vinci was the mastermind behind the design of the canal locks.

How to visit: Explore the Navigli District on a 2-hour walking tour, accompanied by a local guide.

Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology

The biggest museum of its kind in Italy, this site is crammed with interactive and innovative displays. Da Vinci fans can enjoy the exhibit devoted to the artist, where his most unusual drawings and inventions have been brought to life.

How to visit: Take in the highlights on a 2-hour guided visit, designed to engage the whole family.

San Sepolcro Church

Located on Piazza San Sepolcro in the heart of the city, San Sepolcro Church and its magnificent underground crypt were beloved by Leonardo da Vinci, inspiring him to place the church at the center of his map of Milan.

How to visit: Explore the church and crypt on a self-guided tour, accompanied by an audio guide.

Leonardo's Vineyard (Museo Vigna di Leonardo)

Located across the road from the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, Leonardo's Vineyard was gifted to the artist by the Duke of Milan and was his home while he worked on The Last Supper. It has since been transformed into a museum, offering visitors a chance to stroll around the vineyard and explore inside his former home, the Atellani Palace.

How to visit: Access to the house and vineyard is by guided tour only. Tours are often combined with a visit to the neighboring Santa Maria delle Grazie church to view The Last Supper.
