So, you get this ticket to go up as part of the package of tickets for the cathedral. This is at the top of the museum. The view from the top is an absolutely stunning panorama, so make sure to go on a nice day!

When you get to the top it is very narrow and they only let a limited number of people up at any one time. The steps are narrow and very steep. Not for young children.

Siena has two main viewing towers - the Torre del Mangia and the Facciatone (part of the Cathedral). Sadly the former was sold out so we chose this option instead. It's actually included in the basic Siena Cathedral ticket, which gives entry to various attractions....More

It is a reminder that the cathedral in Siena was supposed to be huge, from what I remember one of the largest in Europe, but these plans were punctured by the plague epidemic. A place worth visiting.

Making our way through the museum, counting the steps, we arrived at a tiny circular staircase - one way up and the same way down so wait if you hear somebody already on it. Fabulous views in all directions of Siena and the countryside surrounding...More
