This attraction is included in the OPA Pass and it is a great way to finish your visit to the Cathedral complex. WARNING: If you suffer vertigo or if you are not in a good shape, do not attempt it. It is a lot of stairs and really narrow halls on your way to the top. Views are fantastic!

The unbuilt facade of the Duomo is the best panoramic spot in Siena. Up there, after several steps, you would enjoy a magnificent view of all the town and the beautiful countryside. The convinient pass let you visit the Duomo, the Opera Museum and the Facade.
It is neither the cathedral's cupola nor the Torre del Mangia that offers the best panoramic view of Siena. The Facciatone does. About a quarter of waiting for each two-dozen group - since waiting room is a bit airless you do not want to stay there any longer than necessary.
