Description

Skip the line to one of Italy's most important Roman-Gothic style buildings - the magical Cathedral of Siena. Marvel at the frescoes by Donatello, Michelangelo, and Pinturicchio. See the Piccolomini Library and don't forget to check out the floor. It's made of 56 panels of inlaid marble mosaics and is one sight you won't forget.

Housing some of the most important European artistic monuments, the Roman-Gothic style Cathedral of Siena makes for a meaningful morning. Over a million visitors every year step through these stunning doors - it's just as spectacular as Florence's Duomo.

Skip the line and get up close to amazing frescoes by the likes of Donatello, Michelangelo, and Pinturicchio. They're all here in what is one of the most important examples of this style of building in Italy, constructed between 1214 and 1263.

See the Duomo Nuovo (New Cathedral) and check out the Piccolomini Library, dedicated to Pope Pius II.

Oh, and don't forget to look down. The floor is an art piece in itself, with 56 scenes engraved in marble, which were carved between 1369 and 1547 by 40 different artists. You'll step lightly, but the complexity is staggering!

Please note that the floor is visible in its entirety only from 18 August to 27 October. During the rest of the year, some parts are covered.

A wonderful church with impresive architecture and great art pieces inside. Nice that we could skip the line for tickets and go directly to ticket office 1 to swap the tickets as in July the line was about 15 minutes waiting.

The tickets were pretty easy, we did have to go and get real tickets printed across the street even though the site said the QR code would suffice. Also there really wasn’t a line at the cathedral so we didn’t really”skip” any line.

Absolutamente recomendable. Nuestros guias: constantino y serena, asi como nuestro conductor (creo su nombre era atilio pero aunque no recuerde su nombre es tan importante como sus compañeros). El tour es intenso pero vale la pena, siena, san giminiano y pisa. La pasamos muy bien.

Fabulous - very easy to book, when other websites could not be booked on short notice. Saved an hour or two if standing in a queue. Price was better too than other competitive websites.
