To get here, you pass by the very enjoyable "opera museum" and then, after a not excessive number of steps, you go to see a very interesting view that is difficult to find in other places in the city. Very convenient that this place is included in several cumulative tickets (I chose "OPA Si Pass" , which I recommend).

As you work your way to the top floor of the Museo dell’Opera, there is a waiting area / line for the Panorama dal Facciatone. It is worth the wait for a beautiful view of the city. Our wait was only 15 minutes. First, you descend two flights of a half dozen steps, then you climb 61 steps (by my count) on a circular stairway to an intermediate observation level. After about 5 minutes, you are prompted by a museum guard to move up to the top. You climb another 71 steps on a circular stairway. Wow. You are at the top of a wall that was a planned expansion of the church in the 14th century. The church expansion was stopped due to the plague. Enjoy the views in all directions. Again, you have only about 5 minutes before you are asked to descend.

I love heights! This hike up many many stairs gives you the entire view of the city and surroundings! See where you are and where you want to go!

A great view of Siena. Walked up many steps to get to the waiting area, then had to wait for our group to be called to walk up the spiral steps to the viewing area. But what a view when we got there! Well worth the wait and the steps to get there.

Wondered why we were queuing for best part of an hour in scorching heat but were so glad that we did as the view didn’t disappoint! We only had an afternoon. In Siena and have no idea what we missed out on but would definitely recommend a visit here!
