To celebrate the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, Dorchester Collection’s Hotel Principe di Savoia in Milan has launched an exclusive ‘Discover Leonardo Experience’. The exclusive tours feature two unique options for guests to choose from: ‘The Last Supper’ and ‘In the Footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci’. The package is available at the hotel until December 31 2019.
Exploring the artist’s iconic 15th century painting, ‘The Last Supper’ offers guests a glimpse into Leonardo da Vinci’s fascinating past and passion through an exclusive guided tour to the refectory of the Santa Maria delle Grazie church where the Italian artist’s large mural painting is located in its original place on the wall of the dining room.
The second option, ‘In the Footsteps of Leonardo da Vinci’ takes guests on a journey of discovery with a four-hour private tour showcasing Milan’s famous sights and key locations of Da Vinci’s life. During the tour, participants can enjoy skip-the-line admission to the Da Vinci vineyard, the historical Sforza Castle and Mercanti Square, as well as a chance to see the artist’s fascinating Codex Atlanticus, twelve-volume set of drawings and writings at the Pinacoteca Ambrosiana, with the tour finishing at the canals.
Milan is the city where Leonardo da Vinci stayed the longest, and his presence has left an undeniable mark on the history and artistic production of the city and entire region of Lombardy. Alongside the ‘Discover Leonardo Experience’ at Prince di Savoia, guests can take in the city’s many celebrations of his death with events scheduled throughout 2019 at key institutions, associations and societies.
