Owner description: 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.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Wow! After seeing St. Peters for the first time, I thought that any church after it would be just okay. This is a must. We only purchased tickets for the Duomo and Baptistery, and it was enough for me.

I have been to the Duomo's in Rome, Milan, and Florence, I agree with many that this one is the most grand. I is a sight to see.

“Stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

You can't miss this one. In a 2 week trip to Europe this was probably one of the top things we saw. Get the pass - go through the cathedral and then go to the top of the museum across the way and go up and out to see the panoramic views of Siena. Absolutely spectacular. The cathedral itself is amazing - with the striped marble. Do not miss this one!!

“Great attractions in Siena”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

It is much more than you thought. If you bought ticket to tower too, you can see the top view of the town.
And the church is absolutely great!
Walking inside and the tower may take about an hour.

“One of the most beautiful monument in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

The amount of art inside this masterpice is incredible. Buy a good guide and plan several hours if you really want to breathe the past of this place.
