Duomo - Cathedral, Siena: 101 reviews and 218 photos

 
 

Maybe the duomo in Firenze looks a little bit nicer on the outside , I said maybe.
And yes the tower of the Antwerp Cathedral is higher...

But the nomination for best and most impressive interior goes to the 'Duomo of Siena.

The interior is in perfect harmony , the huge space in black-white pattern marble stripes is impressive.
The pavement in the duomo is the most valuable. The started in 1372 and it wasn't finished before almost 200 years.
You figured out that in this period different thechniques were used.
Some parts of the floor are only visible a short time a year (15/8-15/9).

Please make sure you got the right hours to visit..it would be a pitty to stand in front of closed doors.
