How do you skip the line?
Tickets to see the Last Supper are always hard to come by but do not hesitate! There are many websites such as Tiqets or Musement who can provide you with skip-the-line tickets.
Thousands of tourists that come to Milan wanting to see the Last Supper leave without having seen the painting and that is because you need to book your ticket in advance or else you won’t be able to see it. Book your ticket 2-3 months in advance just to make sure or look for skip-the-line tickets on other websites.
