What people are saying about Siena Cathedral

A visit to the city of Siena and the Basilica of Our Lady of the Assumption with a guide named Mariangela, passionate about the history of her city. We had been incredibly lucky to be only two for this wonderful experience steeped in history. A big THANK YOU Mariangela for this memorable sharing. To do without hesitation.

Claudia was an amazing host! Funny, smart, knowledgeable, and passionate about Siena. My wife and I are in our 70s and struggled a bit with the heat (84 F) and the stairs. Claudia took excellent care of us! Honestly, she could not have been better. It was a great day.

We had a city tour of Siena. It was super organized and our city guide "Ludo" was just great! She showed us a lot off the beaten track and we were able to enter the cathedral without queuing! Highly Recommended!!

Very nice experience, learned a lot about Siena, the contraden and the cathedral. It was glided through the city and the cathedral with a lot of knowledge and competence.

It's worth buying the 'full' ticket that gives access to the tower, walls crypt, and museum as well as the cathedral itself The cathedral is stunning inside
