  • We had taken an ops pass for the cathedral, the crypt, the civil museum and the baptistery... it is a place quickly visited with masterful architecture like all that can be seen in Siena and Florence. The ceilings are beautiful. The visit won't take you very long

  • The Baptistry of St. John, located behind the facade of the Cathedral of Siena, is worth a visit. At the center is the baptismal source, a splendid work of the Renaissance sculpture of the fifteenth century, with works by Donatello, Ghiberti and Jacopo of the Oak.
