Afterwards, head to the Piccolomini Library, which contains a sprawling series of 10 frescoes by Pinturicchio chronicling the life of Pope Pius II. Gaze upwards at the domed ceiling, masterfully adorned with complex patterns and further scenes from the pope’s life.

    We were in Siena in front of the Duomo that we wanted to visit, but unfortunately the queue to buy the entrance ticket was very long and under the sun .... In order not to give up we bought the tickets online, and after five minutes we were inside the Duomo and if not I'm wrong saving even € 2 per ticket. Excellent service.
