The Crypt was a quiet peaceful experience. It was a tranquil relief from all the hustle and bustle of Siena. There is a bit of climbing stairs to get to it so not really suitable if you have small children or buggies but a nice...More

Loved it. Many historical stories to read on walls and beautiful frescos everywhere. Walls were so thick visually.
