The cathedral complex dominates the skyline of Siena and with this single pass you may explore the whole of it, below ground, the interiors and their history, and a final visit to on high to enjoy some simply jaw-dropping views across Siena and the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
The pass covers: The Duomo di Siena (cathedral), Baptistery of San Giovanni, the cathedral crypt, the cathedral museum, the panoramic terrace of the Duomo Nuovo and the Oratory of San Bernardino. This is NOT a guided tour and does not include the rooftops of the Cathedral.
For the month of July 2015 and then between 18th August and 27th October 2015, the pass also includes access to the famous marble-graffito Pavimento del Duomo, described by Vasari as 'the most beautiful... largest and most magnificent... that was ever made'.
We also offer an extended pass which also includes entrance to The Gate of Heaven - a chance to see the spectacular 'sky' of the the cathedral - a series of splendidly decorated rooms never before open to the public.
You may visit pretty much all year round with opening hours varying according to season - your pass will be valid for three days. You'll need to begin your visit at the cathedral - duomo - (no need to queue, there is a special pickup point for those that have pre-booked), and you'll need to specify a time for that, but for the other places covered by the pass you're free to visit whenever you feel like. Children aged 1 to 10 pay nothing, everyone else needs to pay full price.
We also have a page with visitor information for the Siena Cathedral complex should you fancy some background colour.
