The Cathedral of Siena: Interior Part I

Siena’s Duomo, or Cathedral, is absolutely stunning, but it’s so vast and so filled with beautiful works of art that it can be hard to even know where to look first! Listen, and you’ll be guided through the first half of the cathedral’s awe-inspiring interior, where it’s important not only to look up and all around you but also to look down. There you’ll see—in the words of Giorgio Vasari, the famous Renaissance art historian—“the most beautiful, largest, and most magnificent floor that was ever made.” Discover what exactly makes this floor so special, and why it has so much to offer.
