There is a lot to see in the beautiful Siena Duomo. We did not have a guide which would have made it more enjoyable, but opted for this package instead of waiting in line to enter - so we were able to skip the line and get out of the sun.

the carhedrale is magnificent and the view from the facciatone sublime. on the other hand the crypt and the baptistery are not exceptional. The museum was closed

Waiting in line in the heat is necessary even if you do have booked an ticket online before

The visit of all the sites is exceptional and also well organized: I really recommend it!

Beautiful, full of history, great to have access to all the attractions in the area
