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.

I visited the cathedral with my husband and my good friend on March 28th. We had first tasted our way through the chocolate festival at the main piazza. Lovely! Then we climbed the tower of the town-hall for a breath-taking view of the city. from high up we could also see the duomo, and decided to take a closer look.... More

During my trip in Italy, I can affirm this is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. The cathedral is just amazing. Please do visit the smaller rooms to appreciate the paintings. The paintings in one of them were so incredible that I would only compare to ones at the ceiling at the Cistine Chapel in Rome. That's... More

We visited the Siena Cathedral as a part of a group tour. It is an excellently preserved cathedral with beautiful mosaic on the floor. Do stop to admire each one of them and spend time here. Also you must visit the Piccolomini Library. Though you are asked to hold your breath!

A must see if you are in Siena. Good to purchase a ticket which is right by the Bed and Breakfast as it's better value to access the other top attractions.

A wonderful place to look around and religious beliefs aside, it's difficult not to be impressed by the building and contents.

This beautiful cathedral is certainly a great place to take anyone interested in the glories of the Renaissance, art or architecture. The church itself is very impressive, layers of marble, sculptures and frescoes. There are cases lined with illuminated manuscripts and galleries of statues. We went on a rainy day but were not deterred from climbing the unfinished walls through... More

I visited Siena to see the famous Palio horse race but had time to spare so I went to see the Cathedral. I was not prepared for this magnificent structure with its white and black columns and ornate statues. Set in a small but beautiful piazza the Cathedral is truly stunning in the sun light. Inside does not let down... More
