How to get there:
Restoration of the Sinopie Museum facade, Pisa
Effective Friday September 13, 2013 and until further notice the souvenir stalls will be removed from the Piazza del Duomo. The City Council will prepare a construction site plan that will close Via Duomo to pedestrian traffic for safety reasons.
Following this decision, the Opera della Primaziale Pisana has taken steps to organize the access of visitors to Piazza Duomo in the following way:
a) The arch of Piazza Manin will be opened, and elevated walkways will be placed across the lawns, given the impossibility of passing through Via Duomo. The walkways will connect to the paved path which leads to the cemetery (Camposanto).
b) The gate at the Tower of Santa Maria will be opened from 9:00am to 6:00pm, allowing access to a path along the walls and the cemetery (Camposanto). This route is recommended for the elderly, people with disabilities, and wheelchair users.
c) Via Maffi and Piazza Arcivescovado will be opened without any demarcation.
The Sinopie Museum will remain closed for that period, and tickets for the other monuments will be available at the central ticket office and the Museo dell'Opera del Duomo.
For any problem or clarification, please contact the offices of the Opera della Primaziale Pisana.
