The Duomo in Siena, Italy

The Duomo in Siena is a 13th century Gothic building. It is  filled with art treasures by great names such as such as Donatello, Michelangelo and Pisano.

Unfortunately, I did not go inside the cathedral due to the fact that you have to pay to get in.  Furthermore, the Tour Leader was becoming increasingly impatient and urging me to move on.

That being said, the exterior of the cathedral is more than enough to grab your attention. The walls and steps are made of white and black marble, arranged in alternate stripes.
