Cathedral is beautiful and worth seeing with all the trimmings. It's a bit annoying that you have to queue for a long time to exchange for real tickets even if you bought them online and only then can you download the audio guide (sometimes a bad internet connection).

I bought a pass to the Siena Cathedral Complex. It worked very well - no problem exchanging the pass for tickets and it was great to bypass the long queue to get into the Cathedral

Siena is a beautiful place,wish I had more time on my hands but we’ll worth another visit❤️

A place worth to visit. A view point is a breathtaking experience.

The Sienna Complex Pass is the way to go. You get to see so much.
