Duomo di Siena: Visit the Door to Heaven

As we mentioned in our recent post, the Duomo di Siena has opened up access to the higher levels of the cathedral to let visitors enjoy the cathedral and Siena from a new point of view.

The entire area under the rooftop has undergone extensive renovations with an area set up shows tools used to build the cathedral.

While you wait to visit Siena and go up to the “heavens” of the cathedral, enjoy the preview below:
