Sometimes a tour is needed.
tour that listed the Last Supper as one of its attractions. I immediately contacted the company to verify an opening slot and lucky for me there was availabilty. Yahoo! The tour also included a visit to the Galleria, the Duomo (though we not on top), the Scala Opera House, and Scforza Castle. It was worth the 55 euros. The trip was three hours long which would give me the free time I need in order to continue exploring things on my own terms. The Last Supper was amazing. What you don't see in the photo is the amount of depth and motion in his work. Jesus hand looked so real. It looked like you could almost touch it. One reason it is so difficult to get tickets to see the Last Supper is that they only let 25 people in every 15 minutes and are only open for limited hours each day. Afterwards, I went back to explore the art galleries of the Sforza Castle which was a total bargain for 3 euros. Unlike the Last Supper they allowed me to take photos as long as I didn't use a flash. When we went inside the Duomo they were holding a special ceremony for a new cardinal which was pretty cool!
