It was interesting to see these frescoes so colourful and vibrant having been painted in the 13th century. The depiction of Judas betraying Jesus and the subsequent crucifixion was stunning. Long may they remain this way.

The entrance to the crypt is located part way down on the exterior stairs side of the Duomo. The entrance fee is included in the Duomo combination ticket. The crypt contains a significant number of frescoes, in various states of repair, by Sienese artists that...More

When visiting the Duomo, I would strongly recommend buying the full package as each separate part has a lot to offer. The crypt is full of interest in its own right, but also had an exhibition about the recent earthquake and its impact on various...More

The only cryptic thing about this place is that it is underground. There are no tombs in there, only artifacts found during some restauration that, in blunt honesty, lack complete interest to the visitor. Skip this.

After many visits to amazing buildings full of masterpieces, it was almost exhaustive to end the day here. The presentation is more lmodern and low-key and you give more time to study the gold mine of antique art.
