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.
