The Basics

Appreciate the Siena Cathedral’s wealth of art and architecture on a guided tour. Skip-the-line entrance tickets grant access to the church, crypt, and baptistry (Battistero di San Giovanni), along with the adjacent Piccolomini Library—frescoed by Pinturicchio—and the Museo dell'Opera. Explore the cathedral complex as part of a city walking tour or on a day trip from Florence to Siena, Pisa, and San Gimignano. Inside the cathedral, highlights include the marble pulpit and floor, numerous statues, and the Chigi and Saint John the Baptist chapels.

The cathedral was magnificent . The process for skip the line tickets was fine , but would be better if we did not have to redeem voucher . I take many of the Viator tours and most of them voucher is ticket.

Skip-the-Line Siena Cathedral Duomo Complex Entrance Ticket
It costs a little more than purchasing directly through the official museum website, which apparently could not process my US credit card anyway. But is was completely worth it. You have peace of mind knowing you can get in whenever you get there. The line for picking up tickets is much, much shorter. Which saves you quite a bit of time you could be spending inside the sites - and save your sore feet as well!

The walking tour was excellent. A gentle stroll through the beautiful streets of Siena. Claudia, the tour guide, was both knowledgeable and engaging. Claudia also stayed beyond the allocated time in the Duomo in order to further explain some of its hidden treasures. Also for what the tour covered, the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Siena.

There are 56 marble panels of biblical and historical scenes, most hidden behind a protective covering and revealed for just a few weeks each summer. Try to time your visit for this period to view this masterpiece.

Siena Cathedral History and the Museo dell'Opera

The cathedral’s construction began in the early 1200s, and after almost a century, Giovanni Pisano, whose style was heavily influenced by his father, Nicola, completed the beautiful facade. Despite an impressive cathedral, Siena's ambitious ruling families decided in the 14th century to double the size of the existing structure into the New Cathedral (Duomo Nuovo). The plague stopped the plan, and today Museo dell'Opera occupies the only nave that was completed. Museo dell'Opera holds many of the cathedral's most important works of art, including Giovanni Pisano’s statues of prophets and philosophers that once adorned the facade and Duccio di Buoninsegna's Maesta. Duccio di Buoninsegna designed the huge rose window, and the gable’s glittering Venetian mosaics were added in the 19th century.
