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 beautiful black and white marble duomo is worth the 8 euro entrance fee! The stunning architecture, the paintings, inlaid marble floors are just a few items that will keep you in awe. Go early (they opened st 10:30 the day we visited). The crowds become archer as the day goes on.

A special place, but there is a charge. If the decorative parts of floor are uncovered, do look at them. Visit the frescoes inside the library (on the left side of the cathedral). Also visit the museum alongside to see the Duccio Maestà. It is well hidden unless you look for signs to the Duccio room.

You can not visit this charming city without a visit to the gorgeous Siena Cathedral! A gorgeous example of the churches of the middle ages it will wow you as you enter the doors with it's unusual black and white striped interior! Be sure to visit the area underneath the cathedral for many additional surprises!

The interior of this cathedral deserves a visit. Many people just view it from the outside, and while its facade is truly gorgeous, the interior is a spectacular in many different ways. The marble floors are fascinating, with works by 40 different artists. My favorite was the she-wolf (Siena's symbol) surrounded by the symbols of other Italian cities (Venice, Pisa,... More

Very hard to write something about it. The church is spectacular, especially in this time of the year with the possibility to see the floor, but the people working there are terrible. Bad english and no smiles. Very expensive ticket (7 euros) and a ticket office so unusual: you cannot see the people over the glass. We got our from... More

The pictorial marble floors are just incredible workmanship in different colour marbles are quite the best I have ever seen. Just go here first in a Siena trip and think about everything else later!

The walls, columns and floors are busy with colours, fresco drawings and floors with carved marble drawing. The contrast between black and white (the legendary colours of Siena) is most announced indoors on walls and columns. Don't skip the fresco room and the he nave floor. Make sure to dress properly and take off your hat at entry…oh and make... More

We bought the all in ticket - and it was worth it for the view alone but wish we had done the Duomo first and then the rest- view last - preferably at sunset! There was a small queue so not sure a pre booked ticket is necessary, and we only waited 15 min to go up the top. The... More
