Create an itinerary including Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana
Immerse yourself in some of Italy's most significant works of art at Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana. The gallery features a collection of works from the Duomo, including the main altarpiece and a piece of stained glass. Climb up 130 stairs to the panorama viewpoint for what is arguably the best view of Siena. Be warned that the stairs to the top are small and winding, so not suitable for all visitors. Also, only 30 are allowed up at a time, so lines may form--don't be surprised if you have to wait a bit. Upon entering this museum you have the option of purchasing a ticket solely for entry here, or a combination ticket which also includes the crypts, baptisery, and panoramic viewpoint. Using our world travel planner, Siena attractions like Museo dell'Opera Metropolitana can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Prepare to wait 15-20 mins for each floor (total of 45-60 mins) until your reach the top. No AC on each room
  • We only wanted to visit the panorama point, but we had to queue four (!) times indoors for almost an hour until we could go up. I don't think that these are good corona prevention measures. We don't they use timeslots to avoid queues?
