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.

The Siena Cathedral is very beautiful and ornate. We found it a bit overwhelming though because it was so busy. I think part of that might have been that we were there mid day. I would think that it would be quieter at opening or near closing. The number of people took away from our visit but we still enjoyed... More

One should visit this cathedral when they are in Siena. This is the first thing we did when we arrived in Siena. Very beautiful and grand inside and outside. Its worth visiting this place. We came in a not so busy time and so the place is not crowded. Had gelato in nearby gelaterria!

This cathedral is more magnificent than the one in Florence. It is not to be missed!! There is a museum, crypt and several other things that are included in the ticket you can purchase there.

This is truly over the top as far as cathedrals go. From the intricate marble inlaid floors to the stripped columns, to the shear size of the place. I have never gotten tired of visiting here having first seen it in 1983. I always come back and it never looses its majestic charm. A must see in Sienna.

It is an impressive building with fabulous architectural. I think you must visit it. The only main problem with all this churches-museum is that you need to pay for everything...

This is the most beautful Gothic cathedral I have ever seen. The mosaics on the floor are outstanding. Make sure you don't miss the Library which in hidden behind a small door on the left side. The highlight for me was climbing up to the top of the Cathedral. It's only about 200 steps up, and therethe views are spectacular.

I first visited over three years ago as a college student during study abroad and recently on my honeymoon got to come back and visit my favorite church in all of Europe! $4 tickets to browse the main part of the cathedral and I think it was worth it! Can't speak for the rest of it. Also bought an adorable... More

This site costs a little but buying the ticket for the church and museum is well worth the small price. All the churches in Italy are beautiful and this one is as well

I was moved by the grandness and presence of this cathedral. Lines aren't long and you can enjoy time walking around, viewing paintings and old manuscripts. It has such an intense presence.

It would be difficult to visit Siena and then miss out on the Duomo. There is so much to see in this one location with 5 separate entrances to attractions - Duomo and library, Crypt, Museum, Baptistry and Facciatone. You can get a ticket covering all entrances, entitling you to enter each feature once but over a three-day period. This... More
