Leonardo’s Last Supper Tickets & Tours

The Last Supper is a famous painting by Leonardo Da Vinci. 

It represents the last dinner of Jesus and his apostles in Jerusalem before his crucifixion.

You can see the dark tapestries lining the walls on either side, while the back wall is dominated by three windows that look out on an undulating landscape recalling Milan’s countryside. 

There are hidden messages all across the painting.

Historians have reasons to believe that the spilled salt, the bread rolls, and the apostles grouped in a specific number translate into something bigger. 

You can see this magnificent painting in the Refectory of Santa Maria Delle Grazie Church.
