Be prepared to wait long time to get in. Lot of stairs going around and very narrow

Beautiful view on the chatedral and Campio. You pay to enter, and than you have to wait for a long time to get there. Staff unfortunately very unpolite...

Part of the unfinished "New Cathedral", the Panorama dal Facciatone) offers a breathtaking view of the town - if you can manage the hundred or so winding steps! It's adjacent to the Museo de'Opera del Duomo (which is a museum, in fact!).

Fantastic view throughout the Tuscan nature / scenary and the city of Siena. Waiting time to get up - only 20-30 people at one time (about every 15-20 min.). Narrow stairs, but not so many as in the tower (about the half, or less).

You get beautiful views over the town and the surrounding countryside from here. There is a line as they only allow about 15 people to go up at a time, but it's well worth the wait.

At first I thought this was some kind of ruin, but apparently an unfinished structure of all that is left from the grand ambitions to enlarge the almost completed Cathedral to make it the largest in Europe. In 1336 they began building a new nave, perpendicular to the existing one, and reorienting the church by 90 degrees. The plans were... More

We bought OPA Si Pass for 12Euro, so visit to Facciatone(plus Duomo, Baptistery, Cript and Museo) was included. The limited group of people can enter every 15 minutes, so be early to avoid long queues(but even if you are in a long queue, it's worth waiting!).

While in the plaza at Il Duomo, we saw people up on top looking down at us. We asked and were told how to get there. There was a wait as only a handful of people are allowed there at a time. There is not one, but 2 successive circular stairways that are a bit intimidating and very tiring. But... More
