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.

Beautiful exterior. But main attraction is inside in a side room where a series of timeless books are on display. All the print and art is hand done. I have never seen anything like it.

Simply beautiful and a must see. In-expensive (compared to some attractions I visit closer to home). Take a slow walk around, or you will miss some of the amazing craftsmanship that has been put into building this incredible Cathedral. Some amazing flooring, which you will need to look closely at, again there is so much detail involved in all aspects... More

A must-see in Siena. The bold patterns make a for a very majestic Cathedral. A great place to wander through with a guide to learn about the history of the Siena Cathedral.

A must-see if you are in Siena. The level of detail present in the whole cathedral is hard to summarize. It is all stunning, but of special note are the marble floors. It really puts it over the top against the best of Rome. Don't miss this five star attraction.

One of the most beautiful cathedrals I have ever seen. The Italian gothic architecture was breathtaking. The library was especially stunning and worth the 2 euros it cost us. Would definately recommend to anyone as it's a must see in Tuscany.

IIt is a cathedral with special TOPTI the architecture, color and interior. Sometimes you feel like has Arabic influences, but no, it is not. Every corner is pure art. SUBLIME! GREAT!

The entry ticket to the Duomo di Siena costs you 5 Euros.We did not see much of a queue to get in. Before we had got in the tour guide had told us that the mosaic floor is so fragile that most of it is covered most of the year. And it was only on the day in Oct.'16(second week)... More
