  • Worth a visit to see the Last Supper in person! You will need to book tickets well in advance. We visited at the beginning of March - low season - and they were completely sold out. They have a pretty organized system. You will need to exchange your voucher for a ticket about 30 min in advance, where you will also need to put your backpacks in lockers. This is all done, along with the green pass/vaccine card check, at the ticket booth to the left of the church. Then you're instructed to line up at the museum entrance where you'll be let in only if it's within 5 minutes of your entrance time on your ticket. They are fairly strict about this and we saw quite a few people turned away. You will need to go through security, then you will have time to read about the history of the church. You'll then be allowed in to see the Last Supper. You're given 15 minutes to see the work and you're free to leave anytime before then. If you'd like to have the Last Supper to yourself, just stay the whole 15 minutes, as most people leave around 5-10 minute mark. It's a wonderful and powerful piece and well worth a visit if you're in Milan.
  • Church where Leonardo painted the Last Supper. Entry to the church is free, however, to see the actual image you need to buy tickets for a museum that’s about 20m in front of the church. It’s almost impossible to buy them on the spot. Most of the times they are sold for the upcoming 30 days. Your best bet is booking yourself online and planning your visit in advance.
