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.

Our group of friends toured this immense and beautiful church. We bought tickets for 12 euros which gave us admission at a specific time within a 10 or 15 minute period, along with admission to other sites. It is quite large with beauty everywhere you turn. We spent about 45 minutes here. Absolutely worth the time and minimal cost to... More

At an early point of our trip our daughters made it clear that they will not tolerate any more visìts to boring churches. But even they had to admit that the Siena Cathedral is worth it.

This church is beautiful both on the inside and the outside. However, charging 12 euros to visit a church run by an incredibly rich organisation (the Catholic church) is a bit distasteful, especially since even the cathedral wasn't free. I got to visit the Uffizi for almost half of the price of that. It was also really unclear what was... More

yes another cathedral in italy.. but this is really beautiful. You can really appreciate it as an escape from the heat if you go in summer. Take your time to wander around and make sure you see all of it

Very nice both on the outside and inside. Well worth a look. For 12 euros (instead of 7 for only the church) you have access to several sites like a panorama, the crypts etc.

Siena Cathedral is beatiful, maybe one of the most beautiful in Italy. We took tickets to see the Church, the Cript, the Baptistery and to climb on the wall of the unfinished part of the church with beautiful view on Siena, which to be reached through the muesum. The problem is that when you buy the ticket they don't tell... More

Siena is Siena. Take it slowly and easy. The Cathedral is part of the Siena soul. Impressive, if not the most impressive of the huge number of Italian cathedrals. But it's part of this impressive human creation called Siena. Likely much better to enjoy outside the torrid temps of summer!

If you get to the Dome in Siena and think - oh, it's just another church, I'll see it another trip - I'm telling you, it is worth the effort. We were there on a Sunday and we got it for free somehow. I am not sure if it was because it was a weekend day or because The Palio... More

After visiting many churches, I believe the Siena Duomo still deserves a visit since the interior (and exterior) are so unique. When we were there, large sections of the marble floors were uncovered and were breathtaking. My mom and I both had our shoulders bare and were given disposal 'ponchos' to cover up.
