Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper

Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie, Milan. We are ready to see the Last Supper - or "Cenacolo" - by Leonardo Da Vinci! Plan your visit: there is so much demand, book your place in advance and you will get inside in very small groups for 15 minutes. The Last Supper is a stunning masterpiece and everyone falls silent in front of it. Leonardo Da Vinci describes all human traits and emotions through his figures and the whole scene is some kind of very animate show more than a plain painting. Let's investigate some of the mysteries hidden in this painting, even more famous worldwide after Dan Brown's mention in his novel "The Da Vinci code".
