Extraordinary uncovering of the floor of the Cathedral of Siena
From June 27 to July 31 and from August 18 to October 18, Siena Cathedral unveils its magnificent marble mosaic floor
From June 27 to July 31 and from August 18 to October 18, 2022, Siena Cathedral unveils its magnificent marble commesso floor, the result of five hundred years of artistic expression, a symbolic journey in search of the highest values of the human spirit: as in heaven, so on earth.
The precious polychrome marble carpet is extraordinary, unique, not only for the technique used, but also for the message of the figurations, a constant invitation to wisdom, starting from the naves with the protagonists of the ancient world, disheveled sibyls and authoritative philosophers, up to the biblical subjects under the dome, in the presbytery and in the transept.
For access you can make the single ticket "Opa Si Pass" that allows you to visit the entire Monumental Complex of the Cathedral of Siena, except for the Porta del Cielo route. While with the ticket Porta del Cielo All Inclusive it will be possible not only to access the Porta del Cielo, but to complete the tour by visiting all the other sites of the Museum Complex of the Duomo of Siena (Cathedral and Piccolomini Library + uncovered floor during the periods of uncovering, Museum of the Metropolitan Opera and view from the Facciatone, Baptistery, Crypt).
Another novelty is the booking and reception system, which has been completely renewed and simplified, following the highest standards provided by Opera Laboratori. Therefore, it is possible to both continue to use the information and ticketing service in Piazza Duomo, but also to use this web portal to purchase the ticket, which can be presented at the entrance of each monument without having to change the voucher.
