Our 4-star Hotel located near The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci in the centre of Milan is the perfect starting point to discover this masterpiece.

The Last Supper is a late 15th-century mural painting by Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci and is still preserved in the former refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan.

Due to the utmost importance and delicacy of the painting, it became part of UNESCO World Heritage List in 1980 and nowadays it can be visited by tourists thanks to the institution of The Cenacolo Vinciano Museum. The fresco portrays the episode of The Last Supper when Jesus said that one of the apostles would betray him, representing the emotions of all participants in a very realistic way.

Unfortunately, Leonardo didn’t follow the traditional fresco techniques but decided to paint the wall in the same way that he used to do with a wooden board. This caused a marked degradation of the fresco followed by twenty years of careful and meticulous restoration to bring one of the most important masterpieces of Renaissance art back to the original splendour.

Staying at our Hotel in the city centre of Milan, one of the most beautiful cities in northern Italy, just a few steps from the famous fresco by Leonardo Da Vinci, you can reach it with a 15-minute walk and admire closely the brushwork that composes the painting.

A curiosity about this painting is related to the Second World War. In August 1943 the convent was struck by a bomb and the ceiling of the refectory was destroyed leaving The Last Supper covered with rubble and exposed to the elements.

Take advantage of the central position of Hotel Regina just a few steps from The Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci in the heart of Milan and admire the masterpiece of this great artist.
