The Basics

Often overshadowed by Da Vinci’s groundbreaking mural, the convent’s church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and important attraction in its own right. Explore both the interior and exterior of the building—from its Gothic nave to its elegant cloister—on a private guided tour with skip-the-line access to the church, refectory, and Da Vinci’s mural. Alternatively, many walking tours also include a visit to the church alongside other nearby highlights, including the Duomo Cathedral and Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio.
