Even more than the Vatican or the Colosseum, Last Supper tickets are the most difficult to obtain in all of Italy.
If you don’t purchase them ahead of time, it is nearly impossible that you will get in the day you want to go.

Select Italy (http://www.selectitaly.com) celebrates International Women’s Day, La Festa della Donna, by offering female customers a free entrance tickets to see the Last Supper on March 8th (while supplies last).
The difficulty of obtaining Last Supper tickets any day is extraordinary; on a holiday, even more so. No other website currently offers this special promotion to see the Last Supper. Select Italy recognizes the significance of La Festa Della Donna and aims to celebrate its female clients by granting them free access to one of the world’s most breathtaking and valuable masterpieces.
“Even more than the Vatican or the Colosseum, Last Supper tickets are the most difficult to obtain in all of Italy. If you don’t purchase them ahead of time, it is nearly impossible that you will get in the day you want to go,” says Alison Turner, Director of Operations at Select Italy. When travelers have limited time, a long wait in line without the guarantee of seeing the desired site can be a disappointment, to say the least.
International Women’s Day (La Festa della Donna) honors more than just the equality of women. The holiday originates in ancient Rome to celebrate the first day of spring and the goddess Ariadne. More recently, the date marks a day of remembrance for those women who perished in a New York factory fire following a protest for substandard working conditions on March 8th, 1908. The 129 women workers who were locked inside the building died, most of whom were Italian immigrants. Today, the holiday is less a day of remembrance and more a celebration of women the world over.
Italy celebrates La Festa Della Donna with discounted events for women, special baked goods and dishes, and even the sending of “mimosa” flowers to one’s family and friends. Select Italy will likewise participate to express the respect and gratitude it has for its female clients.
