OPA SI PASS

Your OPA SI PASS includes admission to the following monuments and attractions:

The Duomo (Cathedral) is one of the most beautiful churches of Christianity. The Siena Cathedral hosts great artistic treasures: statues by Michelangelo, Donatello, Bernini, the pulpit by Nicola Pisano - masterpiece of medieval sculpture - the splendid atmosphere of the Piccolomini Library, with frescoes by Pinturicchio and the rich mosaic marble floor, "the most beautiful ever made" as Vasari wrote in 1568.

The Baptistery of St. John is a splendid Baptismal Font. One of the highest expressions of Renaissance sculpture, it was created by Jacopo della Quercia, Donatello and Lorenzo Ghiberti.

The Crypt. Hidden for over seven centuries, the Crypt was accidentally rediscovered during excavations in 1999. An extraordinary pictorial cycle from the 13th century will surprise you with vibrant original colors.

The Museo dell'Opera. Admire some of the most captivating treasures of Italian art, including the famous Majesty by Duccio di Buoninsegna - the largest altarpiece ever made - the delicate Golden Rose by Bernini, the Madonna with the Child by Donatello, and the moving crucifix by Pisano.

The panoramic terrace of the Duomo Nuovo. Enjoy beautiful and fascinating views of Siena and the Tuscan countryside. The panoramic terrace of the Duomo Nuovo is definitely the place for your Siena photo shoot!

The San Bernardino Oratory in the Piazza San Francesco is an extraordinary example of 16th century Siena, thanks to its perfect preservation.

 

Beneath the Siena Cathedral: ‘Paths of Light’ (Included from June through October):

A guided tour through the tunnels under the Cathedral of Siena, followed by an immersive video-mapping performance in 3D that illustrates the history of Siena and its people, and how this great little city gives light to such amazing works of art and architecture.

From the Middle Ages to the present day, the video-mapping experience traces the "leitmotif" of the performance - the hope for a rebirth through Wisdom inspiring Justice and leading to Concord. Everyday life and the craftsmen's workshops of yesterday and today are revealed through the voices of the people themselves, accompanied by music and bell-ringing.

Languages available for the visit: Italian, English, French and Spanish.
