Overall rating

Everyone chooses this circuit to actually see the Last Supper. The entrance ticket is actually 15 Euro but the tour is 75 Euro. The difference is quite large for the pedestrian tour. You lose about 30 minutes with the entry formalities and you only stay inside for 15 minutes. To see Leonardo da Vinci's work is worth going once in a lifetime but no more.

The guide (her name escapes me) was amazing. She REALLY knew not only the history behind what we were seeing and experiencing but cultural and social history as well, along with unique tidbits that were super interesting. Great tour!
