Attraction details
Type: Architectural Buildings, Historic Sites, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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.

We were here in January with no lines and no crowds. We got the combo ticket for 8 euro to see the 5 attractions - Duomo, museum, crypt, baptismal, and panorama view. The Duomo is nice, but after a year and a half in Italy all of the church's tend to blend together. The panorama view is probably worth the... More

Gorgeous! So beautiful inside. It is worth visiting it with a tour guide so you can understand more about the architecture, frescoes and its works of art.

Of all the cathedrals that I've visited around Europe, Siena Cathedral is one of the most astounding in design. When I was there in Oct 2014, the floors were on display (read online that they only display 3-4 months, and the rest of the time its covered up). How blessed I am to be able to see! The floors are... More

Italy is full of impressive cathedrals, and this one does not disappoint. The ceilings are some of the most beautiful I have ever seen including those in the Vatican.

You need to spend a long time in the duomo to appreciate all the art. It was built 1136-82. The inlaid marble floor is remarkable. I found the black and white striped marble columns a bit too much to take but who am I? The Piccolomini Library of 1509 showed exactly who the early inhabitants of Siena were. I was... More

So much history and so much art. Our only regret was not having a full tour of just the church. It was a 30 min stop on our Siena tour but not long enough to take it all in. From the architecture to the floor mosaics plus the amazing collection of work from top Renaissance artists. Truly amazing and on... More
