One ticket, many masterpieces

Cathedral

Started from an existing building, we have news of purchases of black and white marbles for its construction only starting from 1227. Remodeled several times, in 1339 it was decided to extend it even further in order to compete with the Duomo of Florence and to celebrate the richness and splendor of Siena; works were conducted by Lando di Pietro, then by Giovanni di Agostino and his brother Domenico, and finished by 1370.

Remarkable is the facade with the alternation of white marble, marble "red of Siena", and marble "serpentino of Prato", with the sculptural decoration of Giovanni Pisano and a beautiful central rose-window in Gothic style. Inside, the floor is made with a technique called "marble intarsia" with 56 panels showing the Revelation through the Scripture; beautiful also the stained-glass windows among which stands the one above the choir, made by Duccio di Buoninsegna. For the sculptural part, we note the Pulpit by Nicola Pisano made between 1265 and 1268 with an octagonal plan, columns placed on lions and representation taken from Biblical episodes.

Piccolomini Library

Inside the Cathedral, built in 1492 at the will of Pius III, this refined environment was frescoed by Pinturicchio between 1502 and 1507 with episodes of the life of Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pius II) and the beautiful Crowning of Pius III.

Baptistery

Made between 1317 and 1325 by Camaino di Crescentino, the Baptistery of St. John presents inside the beautiful ceiling vaults frescoed by Lorenzo Vecchietta starting from 1450 with the Articles of the Credo, and also the magnificent Baptismal Font made between 1417 and 1431 by Donatello, Lorenzo Ghiberti and Jacopo della Quercia.

Crypt

This environment was brought to light in 1999 after more than seven centuries of oblivion; inside there is a magnificent cycle of paintings made between 1270 and 1280 of which we can admire the original and bright colours with Biblical Stories and decorations extended also on columns, pillars and capitals to create an environment of rare beauty.

Opera Museum

Founded in 1869, this environment houses art works coming from the Cathedral, on the ground floor there is an important collection of fourteenth-century Sienese sculpture, inlcuding works by Giovanni Pisano, and the Tondo with the Madonna del Perdono by Donatello; the first floor is dominated by the magnificent altarpiece with the Majesty of Duccio di Buoninsegna made between 1308 and 1311, and also a collection of wooden sculpture and illuminated manuscripts, and the so-called Treasure Room with precious objects like the Reliquary of St. Galgano and the Golden Rose designed by Bernini.

Oratory of St. Bernardino

It houses the Diocesan Museum where we can admire masterpieces of Sienese painting that go from the 13th to the 19th century, with frescoes by Ventura Salimbeni, Rutilio Manetti, Domenico Beccafumi, the so-called Sodoma, the so-called Vecchietta, and the magnificent Madonna del Latte by Ambrogio Lorenzetti.

"Billet opa si pass pratique car coupe fil (encore faut il savoir la file des opa si pass à la cathédrale => non indiquée !) Et impossibilité d'accéder à la vue soit disant magnifique depuis le Facciatone (1h15 d'attente dans une chaleur étouffante au 3ème étage du musée dell'opera) "

"arrivés pour échanger le voucher contre le billet avant l'ouverture des guichets, nous n'avons pas trouvé d'indication sur laquelle des (4) files d'attente se positionner. Ce n'est qu'à l'ouverture des guichets qu'apparaissent les informations souhaitées, lorsque les files d'attentes sont largement formées. "
