On this tour, you'll visit some of Italy's greatest collections of art: the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Santa Maria delle Grazie church, and the Castello Sforzesco.
You begin at the Pinacoteca di Brera (Brera Art Gallery). The Gallery grew out of the Academy of Fine Arts, or Accademia di Brera, an academy that taught architecture, sculpture and other arts. It is now home to one of the foremost collections of Italian paintings in the world. Audioguides can be rented inside for a small fee payable directly to the museum.
Your next stop is Leonardo da Vinci's "The Last Supper," housed in the Santa Maria delle Grazie church. The church is a Unesco world heritage site, was originally built to be a Dominican convent and church. The mural of the Last Supper is located in the refectory of the convent. In 1943, during WWII, the church and the convent were hit by a bomb, but the painting was unharmed.
The last stop of the day is Castello Sforzesco, a former ancient fortress and noble family palace that now houses an art gallery. Original construction on the site began in the 14th century, and the castle continued to be modified by later generations. Castello Sforzesco is currently home to an art collection including Michelangelo's last sculpture, the Rondanini Pietà, and Leonardo da Vinci's manuscript "Codex Trivulzianus."
