Siena Duomo on Sunday

We are in siena for 1 day on Sunday Sep 21.

Is the church open for public on Sundays?

i also read that they uncover the floor Sep 19 - Oct.

Would that still happen on Sunday? Any particular time?

Thanks

Verify the mass schedule and go to mass, it has to open on Sunday (catholic or not all are welcomed)

Thank you all I checked the website and it shows the schedule you have kindly added to the post.

Is it important to get the Opa si pass ahead of time or can one get it there on Sep 21 (Sunday). If we want to see the uncovered floor, is it important to go in the afternoon, after the mass? I could not understand the difference between "cathedral festive 13:30 -18:00 and uncovering floor period 9:30 - 18:00.

Thanks

Did you get the OPA si pass ahead of time or after you got there?

Do you need to go particular time on Sunday? The website says open from 9:30 but I don't know if that is for attending the mass so one would not be able to walk around admiring the floor and such..

Can the experts please help clarify?

I'm sorry but I'm a little confused on times to view the floor. I always thought festive meant Sundays, so are the floors only open for viewing on Sundays? " Uncovering Floor Period Cathedral Festive 9:30 – 18.00" or is that just the time on Sundays and other days they can be viewed from 10:30 to 19:00?

Any clarification would be most appreciated. Thank you.

As far as I can make out this is from the website - My Q is do we need to buy the tickets ahead of time or just buy when we get there. We are now going to be there on Tuesday 23 sep and not on sunday.

Opening times:

10.30am – 7.30pm, Sundays and holidays 9.30am-6pm

Tickets during the uncovering floor period:

7 € (Cathedral + Piccolomini’s Library, inside the Cathedral); OPA SI PASS 12 €/valid 3 days (Cathedral + Piccolomini’s Library + Baptistery of San Giovanni + Crypt + Duomo Museum + Panoramic terrace of the Cathedral)

Also are photos without flash allowed in the siena duomo?

can men wear a sarong (like in Bali) over shorts when visiting the cathedral?

also my Q about whether absoluteky necessary to purchase online tickets for sep 23, (Tuesday). If not does one show up and ask to purchase ticket?

Is there a Sitabus timetable for florence to siena and back? I found one on TA post but the link seems to be infected and takes you to weird website.

thanks in advance

TJ,

Bus tiemmespa.it/var/ezdemo_site/storage/origina…

You can buy tickets when you arrive. Ticket office is to the right of the Duomo as you face it.

I suspect you can wear a dress to cover your shoulders and knees if you are comfortable with that.
