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 bought the multi attraction ticket which made this better value and it was worth every euro. The exterior is sumptuously decorated with marble and statutory whilst every square inch of the interior has a masterpiece on it, it genuinely has you saying Wow when you go inside. Don't miss it.

Less known than that of Florence, Siena Cathedral absolutely worth a visit. Of course for its dome and its pediment outside, as well as colonnades, icons, altars and stained glass inside (drawings depicting the life of saints and apostles and scenes from the Bible), ... just like many other religious buildings in Italy. But the Siena Cathedral has a specific... More

I`ve been in many different Cathedral around Europe and this one deserves a lot of attention. Do not forget to visit the little library, this one you have to pay the ticket outside ( 2 euros ) the cathedral only is free of charge.

There is so much to see in and around this Cathedral that we actually gave up exhausted. It's a 'must see' place.

A must see in Siena, even if you've seen a lot of cathedrals. The floor mosaic scenes were incredible and the marble pillars are quite impressive.

A beautiful cathedral in the centre of this medieval city. Buy the combined pass for crypt, battisterio and cathedral as well as the museum. The museum will also allow to see the catherdral from the top. A fantastic view also from outside

As with most historical cathedrals or churches, this one has the beautiful stained glass, the ornate altars, the grandeur of its size. What distinguished Siena's cathedral was the floors, walls, columns, etc. Just look at the picture that TripAdvisor shows and you can only imagine how glorious this place is. I'm not a religious person, but to go into cathedrals... More

If you have time, get the combo ticket to include the Duomo, Baptistery, crypt, & tour of the Duomo upstairs. We saw all of them & were very glad we did. Tip: If you are short on time, see the cathedral as that is truly outstanding. We saw St. Peter’s in Rome & St Marks in Venice & I actually... More
