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.

Bit of a pain to access but once you work out where to go (to the ticket office with the big flags) and which ticket to buy (one ticket gets you into all the duomo) and then go in the front door it's amazing. Full...More

Worth a visit. A smaller version of the Duomo in Florence but still packs a punch and worth a visit. The elevations are faced with marble and the inside of the Duomo is amazing

The most amazing church anywhere! Quite mind blowing and the architecture astounds/ they took 6 centuries to complete the floor. An absolute bucket list must!

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