Siena Cathedral porta del cielo

For the first time, after two centuries of restoration, it will be possible to reach the vault (the "sky") of the Cathedral: a guided tour will lead the visitors to the attic and walkways, through the spiral staircases hidden within the large towers; from here, from a height of 16 meters, visitors will admire the "sky" of the Cathedral, enjoy an outstanding view of the city and look down into the Cathedral itself, from a unique perspective.
