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.

It is a shame they were never able to complete the extension to the cathedral. It us possible to climb up parts not completed. The views across Siena and surrounding area are brilliant. Fantastic marble facade

Enjoyed a very good tour of the Siena Cathedral/Duomo. Cost 20 Euro to include the "Walk to Heaven", I believe it was called, an additional 8 Euro over the "regular" access to the Cathedral and Museum, but we felt it was worth it. This Cathedral has been restored/maintained perhaps the best of any in Italy!

This is an impressive building with a beautiful facade at the front. The ticket office is a little way off from the cathedral. You must buy tickets here first before entering the cathedral. We did not buy on line in advance and it was easy to get in with no wait (but it was May and raining). It cost €4... More

In addition to the cathedral, which is very impressive, do not neglect to visit the Crypt and adjacent Baptistry.

I was a bit concerned of how this would seem since we just came back from Rome and Florence and saw some pretty impressive Cathedrals. On top of that today it was raining. I am so glad we ended up coming. It was different and gorgeous and impressive. My only wish is that they post some sort of signs so... More

Highly decorated, with intricate details throughout including works by Donatello and Michelangelo. A rare opportunity to see a cathedral from all the spaces usually reserved for the builders and clergy men. Well worth getting the all access pass and seeing all the separate areas around the cathedral as well. Including panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside.

I think this is the most amazing church I have ever seen. The level of detail and the scope and scale takes one's breath away. And if you are not claustrophobic or afraid of heights, be sure to take the tour up to the roof. It provides amazing views and a new perspective. Being able to do this is one... More

Another striking cathedral! Siena, Tuscany and Italy in general absolutely full of them! But you have to see a selection or your visit here would not be complete. I'm not a churchy person but I love the architecture anyway.
