So who would have imagined, during a church restoration project in 1999, the Sienese would unearth 13th century frescoed walls, buried under the rubble of the duomo extension? Buy the multi pass entry ticket and GO see this. It’s language based in art. It will...More

Admission to the crypt was included in the 15 euro Duomo combination ticket we purchased. It was worth a visit to see the beautiful stained glass and statues.

Siena is a beautiful town. Our mistake again was to take a bus tour instead a private tour or even go to Siena on your own. Steep hilly town, so if you have problems with steep walks, not the place for you.

The crypt, underneath the Cathedral, holds an impressive collection of archeological findings, fine art and interesting artefacts. The frescoes and stained glass are really impressive. This is not an actual crypt, but it is very interesting and worth visiting.

Visited as part of the basic 15 euro ticket. The stained glass window is amazing and well worth seeing.

Totally worth taking the time to while exploring Siena to stop here for a visit. Very special, in that, as far as "crypts go," this was light and airy

Not really a true crypt, this tour leads beneath the Duomo and shows some ancient (medieval) frescoes and a glimpse at the ongoing restoration of the Duomo structure.
