Take a tour

Get up close to the great Leonardo da Vinci through the great works that made him a legend. The best way to see the works is on a dedicated Leonardo da Vinci tour that will take you to all of them. Another advantage of guided tours is that you can skip the line that you would otherwise to stay on and wait your turn.

Walking tours begin at a central place in the center of Milan like a library. While heading to the first stop, the guide will take you through the history of the places you will tour and give you anecdotes about Leonardo da Vinci’s works. The first stop will be to see the Atlantic Codex, a bound 12-volume set of drawings and writings that da Vinci did in the later part of the 15th Century and early 16th Century.

You will then go to the late 15th century Dominican Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie and convent that is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The ‘Last Supper’ is displayed in the erstwhile dining hall here. After viewing it, you will leave through the gift shop where the tour ends.

More tours…

This is just one of the dedicated Leonardo da Vinci tours you can take. There are others like the one that focuses on the Navigli of Milan which are artificial canals. Leonardo invented the system of dams and canals when he was assigned the task of making navigation from Lake Como to Milan possible.
