The magnificent complex of the Cathedral of Siena, its Duomo, houses a series of some of the most important monuments of the European artistic panorama. With its more than one million visitors every year, the Cathedral without a doubt represents the fulcrum of the entire complex, while other significant elements include the Crypt, the Baptistery and the Museo dell'Opera, all part of the impressive mass formed by the "Duomo Vecchio" (Old Cathedral), and the "Duomo Nuovo" (New Cathedral). Visitors will travel along a memorable itinerary to the discovery of self and the truth of faith through culture and art, the result of more than a millennium of Western history.


From March 1st to January 6th it will be possible to enter to the "Gate of heaven" according to new rules.
Siena Cathedral never ceases to amaze; visitors will get the chance to go into a series of rooms that have never been accessible to the public before, where no-one entered for centuries, except for the workmen directed by a succession of great architects.

When visitors arrive at the starry vaults, they will be able to walk "above" the sacred temple as well as to enjoy the incredible internal and external views. All visitors will receive the Roof map, a useful visit tool that becomes a gadget to take home, available in the following languages: Italian, English, French, German, Spanish and Russian.
