Is the Last Supper Worth it?

Italy, Milan Guide (B): Is the Last Supper Worth it?

The last time I went to Milan, I foolishly thought I could just stroll into the Santa Maria delle Grazie to check out Leonardo da Vinci’s famous painting of the Last Supper. I couldn’t and I missed it. So armed with that knowledge, on planning a second trip to Milan, I made sure I could get tickets.

The process was a fucking nightmare. I haven’t worked this hard for anything since I got tickets to Coachella a few years ago.

If you Google “Last Supper tickets,” almost everything on the first couple of pages consists of expensive and unnecessary tours. The upside of taking one of these tours is that you’re more likely to get in to see it even after tickets through the official channel are sold out. The downside is that sometimes this is bundled with things you may not want to do and it’s also going to cost you way more than the 12 euro that the tickets actually cost.

The official site to get tickets to the Last Supper is a horrible Italian ticketing site, Vivaticket. If you’re using a web browser, the tiny link to change the text to English is in the top left hand corner, and I’m pretty sure all it does is automatically turn on the webpage translator. There’s no dedicated English link, which is why it doesn’t come up on search results. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
