Full description
Visit key locations and artworks around Milan.

Reach Santa Maria delle Grazie by foot and walk under the portico of the Cloister of Frogs, dominated by the mausoleum-chapel that Donato Bramante erected for the powerful Duke of Milan, Ludovico il Moro. Bramante created a simple but elegant cloister to connect the tribune to the sacristy. Marvel at the central garden, crossed by perpendicular cobbled paths, and the magnolias planted in each of the 4 quadrants. Learn how it got the name "Chiostro delle Rane" ("Cloister of Frogs") from the 4 bronze frogs that spout freshwater.

Admire (when possible) the Renaissance interiors of Bramante's Tribune and the elaborate, earlier Gothic section of the Church which dates back to 1460. Learn how it was once completely surrounded by woods and meadows that stretched over the town's north-eastern border.

Please take note that visit to Michelangelo's unfinished masterpiece inside "Pietà Rondanini Museum" may be at the beginning or at the end of the guided tour.

Enjoy fast-track access to Milan's Cenacolo Vinciano and marvel at one of the world's most famous paintings; Leonardo da Vinci’s masterpiece, "The Last Supper."

Upgrade your tour to include access to Leonardo's celebrated "Hall of Boards" that will exceptionally reopen to the public for the 500 anniversary of the artist's death. This option is a unique opportunity to admire some of the artist's recently rediscovered drawings.
