“Attractions, Religious buildings and sites : Da Vincis Last Supper painting in Milan Perhaps one of the most famous paintings in the world, da Vinci’s The Last Supper has been reproduced to death, but no tote bag or mouse pad or even large-scale reproduction can adequately capture the artist’s emotionally charged mural. Unlike frescoes, which are painted on wet plaster and thus must be completed rather quickly, da Vinci used tempera paints on a dry wall after sealing the stone with dried plaster and adding an undercoat of white lead to achieve greater luminosity. It's astonishing and overwhelming – even despite the fact that Jesus's feet were lost in 1652 given some ill-thought-out renovations. ”

Church
“Perhaps one of the most famous paintings in the world, Leonard da Vinci’s The Last Supper has been reproduced to death, so much so that you might question the point of seeing it in person. When purchasing your ticket to The Last Supper, add on a ticket for the Biblioteca Ambrosiana, the historic library housing some of da Vinci’s sketches.”

Historic Site
“Loosely translated as "Washerwoman Alley," Il Vicolo dei Lavandai is a small corner of Alzaia Naviglio Grande famous for its old wash-house where ladies used to wash their clothes up until the 1950s. Today the area is more artsy, and offers several restaurants where you can try traditional dishes from Milanese or Lombard cuisine, like Milanese risotto with saffron, pumpkin and parmesan stuffed pasta or polenta. Tips : Check out the nearby courtyard where you'll find an art gallery that offers free entry to its exhibitions. Visit in the morning to avoid the crowds.”
