Leonardo's Last Supper is Italy's most famous painting. It's also one of Italy's most visited. Be sure you order your tickets far ahead to see Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece inside the refectory of the Santa Maria della Grazie church in Milan (Yes, the monks ate in the shadow of The Last Supper). By the way the church and convent is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Buying Tickets for The Last Supper
The debut of the Da Vinci Code movie brought out the conspiracy seekers in droves. Only 20-25 people can see the work at one time, for a maximum of 15 minutes. Only if people don't show up will you be able to stand in line and hope to get a ticket. Tickets can be booked two months in advance but sell out quickly. Visitors must be dressed in appropriate attire for entering a church.
