After a three-month closure due to the nationwide lockdown, the Cathedral of Siena along with the Opera Museum have reopened to the public. Access will be free until July 31; visitors may opt to make a donation, and any collected sum will serve to fund a study for the next conservation projects for the Duomo complex.

The Cathedral and the museum are open every day from 10:30 am to 6 pm (on Sundays, the Cathedral is open 1:30 pm to 6:00 pm to allow for liturgical celebrations). The Baptistery of San Giovanni, the Crypt, the Panorama and Duomo Nuovo (“the most awe-inspiring viewpoint in Siena”), the Porta del Cielo and the Piccolomini Library, all part of Siena’s Duomo complex, will be closed to the public until 31 July 2020.
