Overview

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.

The most amazing thing about this Cathedral is that what we see was supposed to have been just one wing of an enormous Church that would have easily overshadowed the Duomo of Florence. The problem was the difficult topography, a glimpse of which was available...More

We visited the cathedral today which was lovely, but very busy just after it opened at 10.30. I'm not sure when the quieter times would be but it would be a much better experience if you can time it better. We also did the Gates...More

Siena & Florence are in fact two rival camps of Tuscany region with history of eternal conflict. Siena cathedral boasts of hosting an annual horse race which happens to be the event of year & everybody of the region looks forward to this annual race.

We were fortunate to have an excellent guide with us for this visit - was very interesting and detailed so you need to read about in advance or have a guide. Good value at 5eur

Stunning architecture, it's gorgeous inside and out. Buy tickets in advance and there's very little wait. It's very interesting to compare it to the Duomo in Florence. Both are beautiful on the outside, but the Siena Duomo is also stunning inside.

I really enjoyed my visit to Siena Cathedral, it is best to pick up a 'Si' ticket in advance as you cannot pay at the door. We were there in very early May and there were some long queues so we found that arriving early...More

Climb the duomo for a spectacular view and then visit the Cathedral after. It’s beautiful! Buy a combo pass for all of the museums and other sites. All of them are worth visiting.

Looks so uniqe. It is beautifully, highly detailed, and looks nice. Unfortunately, we couldn't go upstairs. Rendkívül egyedi, ahogy kinéz. Gyönyörűen kidolgozott épület, szép látvány. Sajnos nem lehet felmenni a toronyba.
