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 cathedral was a striking structure as we turned the corner on one of many Siena's streets. An admission is charged but it is worth it. The artwork on the walls and ceiling is fantastic. It is incredible that so many noteworthy artists graced this...More

As with the Duomo in Florence this cathedral's facade is beautifully enriched in white red and green marble. The architecture looks better and the inside more ornate. There is richness in colour inside and out which gives a sereneness once inside.

Its probably one of my favorite cathedrals, love the design inside and out plus the views above the tower overlooking the town square. Not for the claustrophobic as some spaces can be a tight like the spiral stares.

We were able get in at the last minute toward the end of the day which was perfect as most of the tourists had gone. Beautiful cathedral and very interesting story about the unfinished portion.

I wouldn't risk it. Stick to something below the knee and make sure you have a wrap or cardigan to cover your shoulders

Yes, we saw ladies with bare shoulders wearing a white cape type cover. They were being dropped off at the exit.
