    Don't Miss It
    It is rated the number 1 "thing to do" in Amalfi for a reason--it is incredibly beautiful both inside and out. Its exterior is somewhat unique in that the multi coloration certainly adds to its beauty. It has a commanding place high above the main piazza and if you traverse the main street Via Lorenzo you run right into it. Plan on spending about 30 minutes exploring the interior, it is well worth the time.

    Duomo of Amalfi
    The Duomo with a magnificent facade and grand stairs lies right in the centre of main square of Amalfi. Top of the stairs affords a panoramic view of the surrounding village. The basilica inside has beautifully decorated ceiling and wall carvings. For a reasonable entry fee, worth a quick visit

    Well worth a visit
    The Duomo is very close to the Pier where you are likely to have hopped off your boat if doing a day trip like we did. It’s a beautiful church with the Paradise Cloister a real highlight, beautifully cultivated and maintained. The Chapel and other areas of the short tour are worth seeing, incredibly peaceful and serene.

    Beautiful Duomo, spectacular crypt
    Entry is very reasonable 4Euros, and the route through the Duomo includes various sections which are all described in a pamphlet provided. The building is magnificent, up many steps, and the crypt was highly ornate and quite unexpected. The cathedral was quiet and we felt the history of many thousands of worshippers over the centuries. A welcome oasis of calm after the hustle and bustle outside.

    Great church and facade!
    Beautiful church and visit. We paid 10 euros for the entrance fee to see all of the sites here: il Chiostro del Paradiso. La Basilica del Crocifisso, il Museo, La Cripta, La Cattedrale. Worth visiting.

    Relics of St-Andrews.
    We were lucky to be able to go in just before a wedding. We toured the museum and then I was surprised to find that the church had the relics of St. Andrews the apostle. People were in adoration and it was a beautiful crypt. Then as we went to visit the Church, wedding guests had arrived in their most beautiful outfits; and the bride was walking up. What a sight!

    Magnificent!
    Whst an historical and beautiful cathedral! There was a lot to explore, the cathedrsl itself but also a museum and a crypt where the relics of the body of St. Andrew are kept. We did not attend a guided tour, but the guides in each section were happy to answer our questions and share their knowledge. Absolutely worth visiting!

    Very good visit after 30 years
    This is a very stunning duomo from the outside and it is reasonably priced to enter, only 4€ each. The cloisters were as you would expect peaceful and contemplative, but were enhanced by an exhibition going on. The crypt and 5he main cathedral wer3 ev3n better. It is well over 30 years since I last visited here and it was as if I was seeing it for the 1st time. I would thoroughly recommend visiting

    For us, visiting it was truly a memorable experience.
    If you are in Amalfi, make a tour of its cathedral, a definite thing to do. It is located in the heart of the old historic center, just off the Piazza del Duomo. It is really a beautiful church. Built in the 9th Century it is a wonderful example of many styles of Romanesque, Byzantine, Gothic, and Baroque Architecture. It is dedicated to the Apostle St. Andrew whose relics are kept inside the church. The "striped" cathedral is the symbol of the city of Amalfi and is particularly enhanced by the imposing, steep and long staircase. This cathedral, which dates back to the beginning of the 10th century and has undergone several renovations, is actually the result of two churches. Exactly, because there were two basilicas in Amalfi. The first was built around the year 1000 by Duke Mansone, the second was built in the mid-9th century and was larger than the first. At the beginning of the 13th century, Archbishop Pietro Capuano and Cardinal Matteo Capuano decided to unify the two buildings, forming a single basilica. Its current appearance is the result of a reconstruction carried out between the 16th and 18th centuries, but the current façade is the work of Enrico Alvino, in the 19th century. The tower was instead built in 1180 and restored in the 18th century. Inside the church you can see the coffered ceiling covering the ancient marble columns and a panel, on the main altar, with the figure of Saint Andrew the Apostle, protector of the city of fishermen and sailors. The Baroque style is the result of renovation over the centuries after construction. The portal has a larger dome, with a fresco by Domenico Morelli and Paolo Vetri, as well as doors made of bronze cast in Constantinople and sent to Amalfi by sea. Gothic-Renaissance works of art are preserved in the chapels. During construction and renovations, the architects made changes to the church to bring it into line with the prevailing style of the time. It was not uncommon to use material from the previous renovation. Some of the decorations are now found in local museums, while the frescoes and other details have been lost. Amalfi is a fascinating city. Its history, culture and architecture should not only be appreciated and admired from afar. The best thing about Amalfi and its cathedtal is being able to visit it. For us, visiting it was truly a memorable experience.

    Stunning Cathedral
    Duomo di Sant'Andrea is a medieval Roman Catholic cathedral in the Piazza del Duomo, Amalfi. It is located up a set of stairs so can be challenging for some to reach. Great view of it if sitting at one of the many cafes in the square. It is dated back to the 9th and 10th centuries and redecorated many times in various styles.

I knew nothing about Amalfi before I went there..so when I walked into this beauty (on the main square) I was pleasantly surprised :). It's beautiful and worth a visit (its bigger than it seems). €4 a ticket, no long queues (at least at the end of march).

Absolutely beautiful, the Cathedral was lovely. You will need to be covered up no strappy tops or short shorts. I just couldn’t believe how old it was.

When the sun shines on the exterior or when lit at night, it gives a very uplifting look full of positive energy.
