    Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

    The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci

    This is only spectacular if you love art and know the history behind it. It is quite amazing and one of those things that you can tell your children you saw in person. At first, the location looks a little out of place and then they take you through a series of security checks and then you see the work of art. Pick up a copy of it at the bookstore!

    The Last Supper

    by leffe3 Written Jan 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the most famous pictures in the world. To be found in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, it amazingly survived the bomb in WWII that destroyed a large part of the church. The church itself is a wonderful example of Renaissance architecture and is worth time exploring.
    Note that to see The Last Supper is where Italian bureaucracy has gone crazy. Since the restoration, access is limited to timed groups of people (20 at a time). You get about 30 minutes in the refectory. Fair enough so far. Entrance is to the side of the church, with a modern foyer, information centre and box-office. Still fair enough. Try buying a ticket. Although there is a Box Office, tickets can only be bought at the PInacoteca Ambrosiana some 2 miles away. And as extra advice, it is likely that, because of the limited number allowed in at one time, tickets need to be bought a couple of days in advance of intended visit. So if your time is limited and yu want to see The Last Supper, arrange this first.

    Santa Marie della Grazie

    The old refectory is next to the church and is well sign-posted. Outside the little square has polished stone seats around small green flower boxes. The door says sold out but go in anyway you may discover you can book..

    If you come from the other direction you are really aware of the end of the church, which rises above the street. A not unattractive exterior that we were unable to follow up on the interior as the church closes at 12.00.

    You line up to enter through the 'air-lock' doors to the refectory proper.

    I find the picture a little disappointing. It firstly appears to be out of focus, and then comes a creeping realization of what has been lost - the finer detail. Through the windows behind Christ little is visible yet the style of the landscapes had been to make these quite detailed. The figures appear as planes of colour. The figure of John next to Christ is very sexually ambiguous now.

    At the other end, and largely ignored, is a 15th\16th C crucifixion scene that has greater life.

    A modern bookshop sells reproductions of the da Vinci, both labelled & plain.

    Santa Maria delle Grazie and Cenacolo Vinciano
    The church is one of many beautiful churches located throughout Milan but most everyone comes for the rectory next door, the Cenacolo Vinciano where Leonardo da Vinci's, Last Supper is located. There are usually very long lines to see this so definitely make a reservation unless you want to wait for hours.

    When you are in Milan, you must seeLeonardo da Vinci's 'Last Supper'. We were lucky enough to see the painting without making reservations. The offical word was that reservation were needed, but we decided to show up and try to get in. We were lucky enough to do so.

    Almost always sold out! Try to get tickets in advance - but the little church is worth visiting anyway!

    One of the greatest church in Italy.
    And of course, take a look to the famous 'LĀ“ultma cena' di Leonardo da Vinci.
