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.

Without exaggeration this cathedral with its blend of colors, textures, shapes, and exquisite, art works is worth a trip half way around the world. The extra eight euros to see it and the city from above was well worth the price also. This building is right up there with the best of the best in terms of architectural sites in... More

We have visited many cathedrals in Italy, but Siena's Duomo is one of the most impressive. The paintings, sculpture and architecture are outstanding; the most impressive feature is the ancient marble mosaics. They are not always open for viewing, but if they are uncovered when you are there, you are in for a real treat.

I've been to this Duomo on a number of occasions but I wanted to go up into the newly opened roof space and see the views both within and outside the building. They have done an amazing job with the access up to the galleries and the objects on display are very interesting. Two guides to about 14 people and... More

The Siena Cathedral (or Duomo di Siena) is a medieval Gothic church built in 1263 and is located a couple of blocks west of the Piazza del Campo which is in the center of Siena, Italy. It is also close to the Town Hall. Sienna is located about 150 miles north of Rome and about 45 miles south of Florence... More

The marble striping of this beautiful cathedral made it striking. As part of the Duomo Museum admission, the climb up the wall that was part of a new transcept never completed gave amazing views of the Duomo and the town.

By far one of the most beautiful Duomo's I have had the pleasure of seeing in Italy. The details in the floor panels is simply amazing and worth the trip to see. This is surely not a church to miss on your excursion in Italy.

Religion at it's best!! Everywhere is so magnificent. You will be truly amazed. If you can, take the rooftop tour, great views looking down into the body of the cathedral. Also get a pass and go and visit all parts of the cathedral including the museum and the panoramic views. You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful cathedral both inside and out, and very unusual compared to other cathedrals due to its charcoal and white striped colouring. The architecture on the front of the building is stunning with intricate carvings like a delicate wedding cake, stained glass windows and gold. Inside the striped pillars and walls almost give an Egyptian effect, well that's how we felt!... More

This is a return visit to the Duomo and we saw things we remembered and enjoyed and a few things we did not remember. The floor is incredible and can occupy you for an hour all by itself. The murals on the walls are fantastic and the statuary also very nice. The library on the left side is well worth... More
