  • Little gem at the foot of the main Cathedral. Well kept, clean and controlled. As in the rest of the structure of the Cathedral (see the gradients exist) could get a little complicated access to disabled people. I recommend having the ticket "OPA is PASS" by value of € 8 (€ 12 from 1° of March), which includes the entrance to the Cathedral, Piccolomini library, Baptistery, crypt, Museo dell'Opera, Facciatone.

  • With 6 I visited the Cathedral, the library and the Baptistery. Get uni remains struck by the beauty and refinement of the baptismal font. Well preserved frescoes provide food for thought to the visitor on the beauty of the Italian artistic heritage. Essential stop for those visiting Siena.

  • Everyone in Italy, always fascinating and mysterious, this is one of the most beautiful. Both internally, with its vibrant colors and intense, and outside. Beautiful.

  • You can pay for an individual ticket to the Baptistry, but I suggest that you buy a combined ticket!
  • It is located under the final spans of the choir of the city's cathedral, and bridges the difference in height with the square below. The façade, in Gothic style with the typical pattern of local marbles
  • Overwhelmingly beautiful.
  • Beautiful place with many artifacts to be seen!
  • כנסייה גותית ומיוחדת, יש ציורים על הרצפה ושימו לב בתקרה על פסלי הראשים מסתבר שהם של כל האפיפיורים מהראשון ועד המאה ה 12
