Official "Last Supper" tickets sold out...are there other options?

I posted a question yesterday about our stay in Milan and seeing the Last Supper. Now I find that at what appears to be their official web site...

http://www.cenacolovinciano.it/html/eng/home.htm

...there are no more tickets. But I've found a few other places that also sell tickets like:

http://www.tickitaly.com/galleries/d...ast-supper.php

Are these sites buying from the same official site as I tried (so they won't have any luck) or do they buy blocks of tickets and resell them for a profit since their ticket is more money? I would be suprised if this is allowed...but who knows.

they buy from the same official site (there's no other way) but they get group tariff because of the amount they buy so even if they sell at the same price they get a profit

Sorry, I forgot..I had the same problem as you but it was a last minute trip and none of the other places have...so we booked a group tour of milan (expensive! 50 euros per person) but I loved it, we went to the Last Supper, the Castello Sforzesco and also the Scala Museum (the Opera) which turned out to be the best decision I took !

I think you should call the convent and make sure they are indeed fully booked, as I have heard that the website does not work properly and often says that all times are booked when that is not the case. To book, phone: 011-39-02-894-21146 (Mondays-Fridays 9.00am-6.00pm, Saturdays 9.00am-2.00pm, Milan is 6 hours ahead of EST)

I have tried a bunch of times to book by phone, and always end up on hold for about 5 minutes, then get disconnected due to high volume. I guess we will book the tour, unless anyone else has a better idea?

When I was trying to book it was such a hassle I gave up and booked a day tour which included the Last Supper. It was affiliated with Grey Line Tours.

Kendarina do you remember the name of the tour company you booked in Milan?

There's only one..I bought in advance the tickets from www.autostradale.it because I want to be sure to get them, but in fact, most of the people on the tour bought their tickets just there at the tourist office in Duomo's Piazza where the tour begins
