Persistence = Tickets to The Last Supper

Jump to last reply

I had read that buying regular-price (€8) tickets to view The Last Supper were hard to get. We will be in Milan April 1-4 and that being Easter week, I figured it would be even harder. I checked the official website, Vivaticket, (http://www.vivaticket.it) beginning in late December. Tickets went on sale for March beginning December 2nd.

Since they open sales one month at a time, it seemed logical that April tickets would be available in early January. They choose apparently random dates near the beginning of the month to open sales.

I kept checking several times a day throughout the entire month of January. Then in early February, they still had not opened sales for April. Finally, about a week ago they posted that tickets for April would be available beginning February 19.

Does that mean right at midnight? That wouldn't be hard to check since that time is 3:00 pm on the 18th for me. No luck then and throughout the evening. The phone line for tickets opens at 9:00 am in Italy, or midnight for me. Guess I'll stay up late.

Midnight comes and still no April tickets. I refresh the page every few minutes and at 12:20 am I decided this would be the last check before I gave up.

Amazing! April tickets... My first choice of dates was Thursday, April 2 and by the time I was at the calendar page, every one of the 16 timeslots was sold out except for the first at 8:15am. I fumbled around trying to translate some of the Italian - even though they have an English language page, the most important words are only in Italian.

I refreshed the calendar page and amazingly, three more time slots were available. I was successful in getting two tickets for 11:00 am. Within a short time later, the entire month was sold out except for a few times with only single tickets.

I'm looking forward to seeing it, especially on Maundy Thursday, the day depicted in the painting.

Good luck to all those trying to get tickets without paying the inflated price of the tour operators that scoop them up first.
