The magnificent complex of the Cathedral of Siena, its Duomo, houses a series of some of the most important monuments of the European artistic panorama. With its more than one million visitors every year, the Cathedral without a doubt represents the fulcrum of the entire complex, while other significant elements include the Crypt, the Baptistery and the Museo dell'Opera, all part of the impressive mass formed by the "Duomo Vecchio" (Old Cathedral), and the "Duomo Nuovo" (New Cathedral). Visitors will travel along a memorable itinerary to the discovery of self and the truth of faith through culture and art, the result of more than a millennium of Western history.

We preferred Siena over Florence, the whole atmosphere and attractions/sites we thought were just as nice as Florence. We only went for the day by bus from Florence as staying at Florence for 3 nights. Easy to get the buses both ways and time tables...More

What a treasure, this cathedral is really worth the trip to Siena. It is a Gothic building with a Romanesque holdover with its 1313 campanile with black-and-white banding in marble. It is absolutely a gem with beautiful floor's marble inlays. You should really spend more...More

What a surprise awaits you! Black and white polychrome columns rose majestically upwards. Beautiful marble inlays on the floor and several important frescoes.

For those who like to visit this type of attaction the Siena Cathedral is mandatory, it is beautiful and it has a library with incredible paintings on its walls, plus you can go up to the duomo, which has a nice view of the city.

We got the skip the line tickets upon arrival (good thing), as the lines were LONG. Worth seeing in and out. The art work is beautiful and the structure itself is very intricate. Highly recommend regardless of religious affiliation.

*September 2017. And there's a café next to the ticket office in case you rushed over before having your morning coffee and pastry.

I seem to recall that you can buy all passes at the ticket office. Having less than an hour to spend, I bought the cheapest ticket (3 euros) to see the cathedral's interior, including the Piccolomini Library. Various other... More

I wouldn't risk it. Stick to something below the knee and make sure you have a wrap or cardigan to cover your shoulders
