About Siena Cathedral, Siena

Located close to the Piazza del Campo, Siena Cathedral is a beautiful gothic building that has the stamp of artistes like Pisano, Donatello and Michaelangelo. A jaw dropping exterior facade prepares you for the ornate interiors that are decorated with white and green marble and magnificent artworks. Everywhere you look, intricate craftsmanship reveals itself; whether it is in the paintings in the ceiling or the craftsmanship of the pillars. The 56 etched and inlaid marble panels were designed by 40 of leading local artists between 1369 and 1547. Incredibly, completion of the cathedral spanned over six centuries.

The heart of the Cathedral, its crypt has been an important archaeological discovery that has unearthed a number of rooms and treasures inside them- from Giovanni artworks to other gorgeous paintings.

The other major treasure in the cathedral is the Piccolomini Library which was built by Pope Pius III. It was built to hold rare manuscripts. Another masterpiece in itself, the library has spectacular artworks, like the rest of the cathedral.

  • I'm happy that my husband decided to go to Siena for a little getaway while we were in Italy. I like the size of the city because it is walkable and you're able to see it in one day. It has beautiful buildings and the plaza is outstanding. We kept it simple at night and had pizza and sat out with the locals enjoying the beautiful evening.

  • What an amazing historical landmark. it’s admired that this place is preserved this well. The architecture is astonishing. I’m glad that I visited this place. The tour guide was amazing. Explained everything. You can’t visit florence and not visit Siena . I had a great experience. Italy times were amazing. Unforgettable memories.

  • Get a guide. I’ve been here before but a local guide educated your eye so much more. Enjoy the Sienna marble and the Italian take on gothic.

  • Amazing building which strikes for its ornated façade filled with little statues and carvings. Be aware that a €4 ticket is required to enter the compound and it's worth it because what you see inside is something that more than meets the eye

  • Beautiful cathedral. There are many different tickets you can get with different types of access. I just got the main Duomo entrance ticket for 7 euros. The other packages get you into the upstairs, the museum in the basement, the San Giovanni from behind the building, etc. Nice artwork inside, kind of like a mini museum
