  • With the Opasipass for the duomo, is included the visit of the museo dell'opera with access to the Facciatone offering us splendid views all Siena and the countryside surrounding! Fantastic! In addition the rise is very unusual with the spiral staircases, tight but what is worth it! On arrival, the 1st word that came... Simply "wow"!

  • Arrivals at the opening at the time where the time of rising, we had a great view of Siena and wonderful pictures. They do get only 28 people all the 1/4 hour. Plan some time in advance.

  • Worth seeing it! From there, the view is amazing!! Not very suitable to those who have children because the stairs are really narrow and winding stairs.

  • I visited in January, so there was no wait. But I can see why there could be a wait in the tourist season as the 2 spiral staircases are very narrow (which makes them essentially one way) and nearly everyone who climbs them seems to be playing with their mobile phones! The view is amazing, and the lack of fences/rails at the top is a true health and safety hazard, but leaves an unobstructed view of the entire city and beautiful surrounding farm land. I enjoyed it :)
  • Panoramic views across the city & beyond from the top. Not a difficult climb but narrow. Be prepared to queue for a about 15 minutes as a limited number of people are allowed up at a time due to the narrow roof top. Worth the effort though.
  • Narrow spiral staircase but Good view here
  • The view is wonderful but you have to wait for an hour a half in line just to stay a maximum of 5 minutes up there.
  • Gorgeous view of Siena and of the Tuscany countryside beyond!
