The title says it. The font with its bas-relief by 3 of the most famous sculptors of the Italian Renaissance is a must-see and the beautiful Madonna would be worth a visit for itself, add to those the wonderful murals throughout and this is an undoubted gem.

After having been around the Duomo and all the other sites with numerous frescoes ... they seem to love them in Siena! You're probably overloaded with religious art that one last visit to the Baptistry is probably unappealing. This however is well worth a visit, it has great art and a wonderfully intricate baptismal font but what sets all this apart is the intimacy of the space, it has a truly wonderful feel, a real contrast to the impersonal space of the Duomo at the top of the steps.

The Cathedral and the Crypt are a bit higher priority in my opinion if your time is limited, but if you have a brief time, and a combination ticket, spend 30 minutes here usefully.

Take your time to take in everything. It is absolutely breathtaking. Just be careful. All that looking up can make you tipsy!
