Enter the world of Leonardo da Vinci, discover his passions and the traces he left in Milan, a city deeply connected to the main artist of the Renaissance. Visit Da Vinci's vineyard, brought back to its original splendor. Then let yourself be mesmerized by Da Vinci's masterpiece: the Last Supper. In 1498, Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan, gave Da Vinci a vineyard – while the artist was finishing the Last Supper – as a sign of gratitude. The vineyard would allow the master to obtain citizenship in Milan, but the dream could not come true because, a few months later, Ludovico Sforza was removed from office. The vineyard, however, continued to have a deep sentimental value for Leonardo and was intact until the 1920's, but it was destroyed during the Second World War. Today, the vineyard has been revived and finally opened to the public. Explore it with this exclusive guided tour. In front of the Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie, the vineyard is located in the garden of the Atellani's House-Museum, a courtier family of the Sforzas. In addition to the vineyard, this tour will lead you to the discovery of this building. The second stop of this tour is the famous Basilica di Santa Maria delle Grazie, one of the most beautiful churches in Italy. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is in the heart of Milan. Inaugurated in 1490, it was renewed in the Renaissance style under the direction of Donato Bramante. To end the tour in style, our guide will take you inside the wonderful Cenacolo Vinciano. Leonardo da Vinci spent three years painting the Last Supper in the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie, in the 15th century. A shining example of the artist's innovative spirit, the work is a wall painting made with an original technique with tempera and other oil binders. Admire the Last Supper in all its incredible expressive beauty and discover its secrets with our expert guide.
