The Last Supper (L’Ultima Cena in Italian) is a fresco of Leonardo da Vinci and it can be seen on the wall of the refectory of the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.

How much Da Vinci’s Last Supper tickets cost?

You will need to buy your ticket in advance – you can do it online from the official website. Tickets cost 10€ per person + 2€ advance booking fee. Tickets for European Union and EES citizens between 18- 25 years of age are 5€ + 2€ advance booking fee.

Note that you can buy a ticket three months in advance. New tickets are released online around the 10th of the month but dates can vary so check online.

Usually, (most probably!) the tickets to visit the Last Supper sell out very quickly due to limited capacity. However, don’t worry if you have not found available tickets on the official website, there are many other websites that sell tickets last minute. You can check on TourScanner and compare the prices of all the websites and book entrance tickets, guided visits or combined visits of several attractions of Milan.

How do you skip the line?

The tickets include the reservation of a time slot. Therefore, the tickets, which must be purchased online, are electronic tickets and there is no queue at the entrance. Make sure to buy the tickets in advance, otherwise it will be impossible to see the Last Supper. The booking process is straightforward and, since a time slot is assigned, the entrance is not chaotic. Very often, you can buy guided visits of the Last supper that include also the visit to the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie.

Are there any combined tickets including other attractions?

Are you looking to make the most of your time in Milan? You can find combined tickets that include other attractions besides the Last Supper. Here I mention some that may result interesting:

  • Historical tour of Milan with Last Supper tickets. You can spend more time experiencing the city visiting Santa Maria delle Grazie, explore the medieval Sforza Castle with an expert local guide, and see the gothic Duomo cathedral and many more.

 

 

 

In overall, there are infinite tours that combine the last supper tickets with many other attractions in Milan. I suggest you have a look on TourScanner to find out which combined tour you like best and to compare prices.

What are the opening hours?

Santa Maria Delle Grazie

The opening hours are from Tuesday to Sunday from 8.15am to 7.30pm.

Reservations are necessary to visit the painting of the Last Supper and visitors must arrive at least 20 minutes before their allocated time of visit. The entry to the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie is free.

Useful tips

  • There is no written information displayed where The Last Supper is, so remember to inform yourself about the painting before you go! Or you can always get an audio guide (book it together with your ticket or get it when you’re there).
  • You will only be allowed to stay in the hall where the painting of the Last Supper is for 20 minutes max, so make the most of it and pay full attention to it.
  • You can take photos of the painting, without flash. They will draw special attention to this inside the Church. No videos are allowed (it’s against the rules).
  • Remember you have a fixed date and time printed on your ticket to enter, I suggest you arrive approximately 20 minutes earlier just in case.
  • The Last Supper is not included in the Milano Card & the Milan Pass. Those are the best options for last minute visitors that don’t want to deal with the hassle of booking the ticket.
  • If you’re wondering how to get to Santa Maria delle Grazie there are trams (18 and 24) which stop at Corso Magenta- Santa Maria delle Grazie. Also subway MM1’s stations Conciliazone and Cadorna will drop you off relatively near, as well as MM2’s Cadorna Station.

Hopefully, this comprehensive guide has helped understand better about the importance of booking tickets for the Last Supper in advance and other useful information. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions regarding the Last Supper tickets! Enjoy 🙂
