This comprehensive guided walking tour is an enchanting fusion of art, history, and culture.

Priority Access to the Gem of Renaissance: The Last Supper

Our exclusive tour begins at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Santa Maria delle Grazie. Our priority access grants us swift entrance to the Da Vinci’s Last Supper. Admire the phenomenal fresco that has captivated the world for centuries. Our expert guide will unravel the mystique behind Da Vinci’s masterpiece, from the intricacies of its composition and perspective to the mastery in the use of colors.

Immersion in the Sistine Chapel of Milan

A stone’s throw from the Last Supper resides the city’s hidden pearl – the 16th-century Church of San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore. Often referred to as the “Sistine Chapel of Milan”, its awe-inspiring frescoes capture the essence of Renaissance artistry. This stop on our tour offers an opportunity to immerse in the astounding beauty of one of Milan’s best-kept secrets.

On first glance, San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore might not strike the casual observer as anything extraordinary. Its modest façade conceals a breathtaking spectacle inside, a testament to the architectural prowess of the 16th century. The church is resplendent with remarkable frescoes that adorn its interior walls, providing a glimpse into the artistic mastery of the bygone era. Each mural tells a story, the immaculate preservation of these works of art allowing them to continue narrating tales of religious fervor and devotion.

Beyond the captivating frescoes, the Church of San Maurizio holds a unique architectural secret: it’s divided in two by a central wall. This layout creates a distinct division of space, with the front area used by the congregation to attend Mass, and the back section reserved for the nuns. This innovative division is one of the primary factors that distinguish San Maurizio, earning it a special place in the realm of religious architecture.

Adding to the intrigue is an extraordinary 1554 organ, nestled within the nuns’ section of the church. This well-preserved relic from the past is not only an eye-catching feature of the church’s interior, but it also functions perfectly, letting out mellifluous melodies that seem to carry the echoes of a time long past.

Today, San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore continues its tradition of service, albeit in a different capacity. The erstwhile convent now houses the Archaeological Museum of Milan, a treasure trove of artifacts and relics that offer a glimpse into the city’s rich and storied past. This harmonious blend of the religious and historical makes San Maurizio a must-visit destination for any culture enthusiast.
