Overview
More
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.

One of the more beautiful cathedrals I have visited. The floors have inlayed artwork depicting the ten sybils and some allegories that are unique, and require some explanation from a guide to fully appreciate. There is a library annex, costing an extra 2 Euro admission,...More

The Siena Cahtedral is breathtaking- despite not buying the ticket to get in, just sitting on the marble steps and taking in all its beauty was memorable! Worth paying a visit when you are in Siena.

Sienna duomo cathedral- a mind boggling structure...highlight is the marble floor which took two hundred years to complete. It had 56 huge panels designed by 40 Italian artists created with the world's most precious marbles. A must see.....

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