Full description
Enjoy fast-track access with your guide to the former Dominican refectory of Santa Maria delle Grazie on this 2-hour tour, and marvel at Leonardo Da Vinci’s masterpiece, The Last Supper, one of the world's most famous paintings.

Walk with your guide inside the nearby Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Admire the Gothic interior of the impressive building, which dates back to 1460. Learn how the convent was once completely surrounded by woods and meadows that stretched over the town’s north-eastern border.

Continue your 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 the origin of its name, Chiostro delle Rane (Cloister of Frogs), as you take in the 4 bronze frogs that spout fresh water.

Continue to Sforza Castle, a former medieval stronghold that became the sumptuous seat of the Sforza Court in the 15th century. Learn more about Leonardo da Vinci's major assignments for Ludovico il Moro, his employer and patron of the arts for 17 fruitful years of artistic creativity.
