The cathedral is beautiful but see it quickly so you have enough time to experience the town.

Can't figure out where to pick up your skip-the-line tickets? It's the crypt.
Patrick_R, Jun 2022
We visited on a June day with thousands and thousands of tourists everywhere. The regular line to the cathedral was only a few minutes long. Any time we saved with our skip-the-line tickets was cancelled by the more than 15 minutes we spent trying to figure out where to exchange our Viatour voucher for actual tickets. It turns out, you have to go to the crypt.
No skipping involved
Helene_N, Sep 2020
We waited for 20 mins in a line with this ticket only to then realise the other line was moving faster so moved to the other line. There’s no skipping of any lines

The cathedral was magnificent . The process for skip the line tickets was fine , but would be better if we did not have to redeem voucher . I take many of the Viator tours and most of them voucher is ticket.
Cathedral Complex - Siena
Julie_C, Oct 2019
We were disappointed that " skip the line" entry did not cover the Panorama. This generated a long wait. You actually only have precedence for the main Cathedral building. The reservation line was also slow as it was also servingnon- reserved customers. Not sure we really gained much paying the extra money.
Totally worth it for us

It costs a little more than purchasing directly through the official museum website, which apparently could not process my US credit card anyway. But is was completely worth it. You have peace of mind knowing you can get in whenever you get there. The line for picking up tickets is much, much shorter. Which saves you quite a bit of time you could be spending inside the sites - and save your sore feet as well!
A must !
Elizabeth_B, May 2019
The skip the line ticket is the way to go. We literally skipped everyone in line to pick up the ticket and 5 minutes later were inside the cathedral. Siena is an adorable town to see with many great shops, restaurants, foody items. The cathedral is beautiful but see it quickly so you have enough time to experience the town. Go early, parking lots fill up. Town walkways are very steep.

Terrific! For the cost it was very good. We did rent iPad devices in the Duomo which we suggest for viewing the Duomo itself, the Crypt and Museum and Bapistry. As this was not really a tour we just received discount tickets.

We had no problem with our voucher. There was a special line for pre-paid voucher holders so virtually no wait. Recommended

Pfitzger17, Aug 2017
You should tell people that what they get from you is a voucher, not tickets. When we arrived at the Duomo, we had to walk up about 50 steps to exchange. Really upsetting as my husband is mobility impaired.

Definitely worth the money. The Duomo is spectacular and beautiful and there is so much to see and appreciate. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Cynthia J, Jul 2017
This is a very useful combined ticket note, it does not include the Gateway to Heaven because it avoids long queuing times. Obviously this also means that you get more viewing time but it also means less time standing in the sun. We highly recommend this. At peak times, however, there is still a need to queue simply due to the mass of people, but at least you only queue the once to actually get in and not to buy the ticket itself. We have also found in the past that if you can leave it til late afternoon the crowds will be much smaller and the whole cathedral experience much more enjoyable.
It was not a busy day at the Duomo...
jlouie00, Jun 2017
It was not a busy day at the Duomo of Siena on the day of my visit, so there was no line to skip. This is probably because I went at the beginning of the holiday season in Italy. I would still recommend people to purchase the Skip-the-line Entry Ticket just to be sure, especially if you plan to visit Europe from mid June to late September.
Bel édifice et panorama exceptionnel sur la Ville
Carine_C, Jul 2021
Très bel édifice. Peu d'explications à l'intérieur donc ne pas hésiter à se documenter sur internet pour éviter d'acheter encore un guide. Crypte assez peu d'intérêt. Par contre entrée panorama top avec une vue extraordinaire sur la Ville. Visite dans d'excellentes conditions avec peu de monde. Heureusement car le voucher doit être échangé sur place par un billet et il n'y pas de file réservée au retrait de billet déjà pris par internet. Attention ce billet ne donne pas accès à la porta del cielo. Attention le billet enfant (7/12) n'est pas réservable sur le site, il faut le prendre en plus sur place où j'ai l'impression de m'être faite arnaquer de 2€ (de "prenotazione" covid....)
Pagare troppo per un servizio
annamaria_f, Aug 2020
Abbiamo pagato 20.58 euro x 3 persone ma la biglietteria ci ha dato dei biglietti da 16.00 euro a persona compresa prevendita , senza la porta del paradiso e non c'è stato modo per ottenere il pacchetto completo. Se hanno ragione loro 4,58 euro di commissione a persona sono un furto, se invece sono loro che non ci hanno fornito il giusto servizio comunque voi non dovreste mettere il cliente in difficoltà e comunque far pagare quello che non si è sicuri di ottenere. Resto in attesa di chiarimenti e rimborso dell'eccessiva commissione. In attesa di Vs notizie invio distinti saluti. Anna Maria Franceschini
Meglio che niente...
Stefania_Z, Aug 2020
Ho davvero saltato la fila per avere il biglietto anche se non era chiaro cosa potessi vedere del complesso. Certo non ho saltato la fila nei vari ingressi, eravamo tutti all ammasso, ma non so da chi dipendesse,
Marloes_W, Aug 2020
Het accent van de spreker was zo intens dat wij het maar slecht konden volgen. Qua informatie vond ik het matig en waren we vaak gps kwijt. Leuk idee maar neem voortaan native speakers die het inspreken.
Beauté et attente

Il faut prévenir les visiteurs que le coupe file ne permet que d’acheter un ticket mais ne dispense pas de faire la queue à chacune des 4 entrées
Sabrina_B, Aug 2020
Pessima esperienza! Pensando di acquistare un biglietto scaricabile sullo smartphone.... invece ho dovuto fare un’ora e mezza di coda x convertirlo in cartaceo ... e come me tutto gli altri.... oltretutto in epoca COVID creando assembramenti pazzeschi!!!! Ma io non so se nel 2020 il biglietto non si possa ricevere sulla mail !! Pazzi siete pazzi!
Bellissima visita a Siena
Paola_F, Aug 2020
Ottimo acquisto, ho evitato più di un'ora di fila. La differenza di prezzo è minima rispetto alla biglietteria, considerando poi che l'ho acquisto il giorno prima della visita. Consiglio
Vronique_S, Aug 2020
Nous avons pu visiter mais l'organisation n'était pas au rendez-vous. Plusieurs files d'attente surtout pour la vue panoramique.

Das Online-Ticket konnte vor Ort nicht umgetauscht werden . Auf Grund von Corona ist der Eintritt zur Kathedrale Siena derzeit kostenlos. Also spart man sich diese Aktion besser

Nora Gabriela G, Aug 2017
La persona que atiende la fila skip the line se tarda siglos con cada asistente, las filas restantes terminaron siendo mas rápidas
