Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana, Siena

#2 of 12 in Museums in Siena
Art Museum Museum
Immerse yourself in some of Italy's most significant works of art at Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana. The gallery features a collection of works from the Duomo, including the main altarpiece and a piece of stained glass. Climb up 130 stairs to the panorama viewpoint for what is arguably the best view of Siena. Be warned that the stairs to the top are small and winding, so not suitable for all visitors. Also, only 30 are allowed up at a time, so lines may form--don't be surprised if you have to wait a bit. Upon entering this museum you have the option of purchasing a ticket solely for entry here, or a combination ticket which also includes the crypts, baptisery, and panoramic viewpoint.

Where to stay in Siena

To enjoy panoramic views of Siena's historical old town, check into a luxury hotel in the city center. If you are looking to escape the activity of the main tourist areas, consider staying at a hostel or guesthouse just outside the central areas. Private multi-room villas in the residential neighborhoods offer landscaped outdoor space and secure parking. For something a little different and considerably less expensive, explore one of many B&Bs in the vineyards and olive groves of Siena's countryside.

  • The museum exhibits dont have the wow factor. Climb to the viewing platform is quite claustrophobic and a bit of a work out. Great views at the top but expect a bit of a wait to get up and back down.  more »
  • This is an interesting place to visit and see some religious art and statues. It is also worth waiting to climb the stairs to see the view over Siena and the countryside. One of the rooms with statues...  more »
