Full description
Discover, in a 2-hour private tour, one of the Siena’s most iconic historic buildings, and World Heritage Site, the Duomo Cathedral. An expert local guide will illuminate the most important historical and artistic events that led to the creation and decoration of this architectural gem. You’ll be able to skip the ticket office queue, so you can get straight into discovering the Duomo’s interior.  After an introduction about the extraordinary facade decorated with statues depicting philosophers, prophets and sibyls that seem to talk to each other, you will go inside to discover the interio: Cappella del Voto, designed and decorated by Bernini during the 17th century, the high altar, the beautiful inlaid marble mosaic floor, of which many parts can be seen, the pulpit created by Nicola Pisano, the Chapel of St John the Baptist (Cappella di San Giovanni) which has a beautiful statue of the Saint himself, created by Donatello in the 15th century, the marvellous Piccolomini's Library, and some of Michelangelo's statues.

Very prepared and kind guide, he explained and told us many anecdotes related to the cathedral and to the history of Siena, making connections also with the historical context and with what was happening in the world and in Italy at that time. It also made the visit interesting for our children.
