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.

One of my worst mistakes was not having enough time to observe the cathedral from the inside

Unfortunatelly, we planned a trip to Siena on the same day we wanted to visit San Gimignano and Volterra. We were impressed with the catherdral from the outside but there was a... read more

I was last in Siena 27 years ago and thought the cathedral was beautiful. Unfortunately as you now have to pay to go in we only saw it from the outside. Still stunning!

One of the most beautiful churches in Italy. We took a day tour to Siena from Florence. It was a great experience to visit Siena and see the beautiful cathedral in person.

We purchased the "Opa si plus" tickets for our family of four (our nine year old son was free, but still needed a ticket). The "plus" tickets are 20E, about 8E more than the regular Opa Si tickets, and include a tour up into the roof of the church. We thought the extra money for the roof tour was well... More

One of the most stunning churches inside we have visited, have we have visited many in Italy and elsewhere. I could not really comment about the price because we visited as part of a guided tour and were actually only in Sienna for a few hours. It was a great few hours however and the cathedral was probably the highlight!

Bought the combo ticket giving access to all the sites related to the dome. The ticket gives access to the dome itself, walking on the roof of the dome, the crypt and the museum. The main attraction from my point of view is the Dome and the walk on the roof of the Dome. The people in the ticket office... More

Very beautiful, very crowded. There was a line to get in. You do need to purchase a ticket so if possible try to buy in advance, our ticket was included in our tour we took from Walkabouts "Best of Tuscany" tour which I felt did an excellent job with the history of Siena.

Both inside and out, it is absolutely stunning. Highly tourist, exploited a bit too much you feel, but from the inside, you get why. Striking is putting it lightly. It dooms on you when you turn a corner and you stand open mouthed. Very, very special.
