Buy the combined tickets they are worth it and you can split your touring into 3 days. It is amazing to see these hidden treasures. Very well preserved and good lighting. We visited in April and it was not crowded.

If you get the combined attractions Siena ticket and the cript is on it is worth a visit. There are very old frescos that have recently been discovered. I found it slightly ironic that they were showing a video of the tragic recent earthquake in a nearby town and how some the art work was recovered while you are standing... More

The frescos are incredible that they were hidden for so many years, and it's awesome to behold. The story of Christ is an incredible one, esp. when depicted by such devout artists from the medievil times. Quite awesome really. However it's a really small space, so unless it's part of the "OPA" ticket package, it's a little expensive to buy... More

These frescoes are shown in there original state. They are beautiful but aged. It is good that they have signs to explain what are or you might miss what you are looking at. Take a few minutes after visiting the Duomo to visit these frescoes.

This is another reason why Siena is my favourite city in the world. The painting reminds one that Gothic wasn't just stone, and there are some lovely bronzes.
