“Unbelievable colors”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Be sure to stop here while you are inside the cathedral. The colors of the frescos are amazing, and the room is covered in frescos. Really, it's like stepping into another universe. Also, purchase the combo ticket--well worth it

“Beautifully preserved frescoes - well worth the extra euros”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

This little gem is a must see when you visit the Duomo in Siena. The beauty of the frescoes as well as the illuminated music scores lining the walls is certainly worth the extra couple of euros required to get in. I love playing my part in keeping this art alive.

“amazing and mind blowing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

For 2 Euro more you can see the most amazing room in the Duomo. It is not to be missed. The ceiling is like nothing I've ever seen with the most vibrant colors. The texts that line the walls are also gorgeous. I could have spent the whole day just staring at the ceiling. You must see this room.
