it wasn't until I had climbed the steps and paid 3 Euros until I realised this was the actual/apparent resting place of St Andrew. As a Scot and graduate of St Andrews University I was both amazed and rather moved. It is a really impressive, peaceful building too.

San'Andrea is Saint Andrew, one of the 12 Apostles sent out by Christ to spread the word across the globe. This is magnificent church in a small coastal town, and the dedication to God is tremendous. The artwork is sublime and just being there over the remains of one of Christianity's most powerful figures is humbling. Saint Andrew's church dominates... More

This is a fascinating duomo built onto an earlier pagan temple. The atmosphere is uncannily peaceful. I liked the suggestion in the leaflet: "Sit silently and listen to IT".

Probably common in small towns on the Mediterranian, a port and then an "inner square" a few steps away from the water, The square is very quaint and has cafe's and restaurants and shops that are all very nice, and then there are the church steps. I think the guide said 60 steps, you can take your time but it's... More

A must to anyone who goes to Amalfi. The inside of the Duomo is amazing. There is so much to look at from entering the Cloisters and walking around admiring the works of art which have been recovered.

Don't run through this church, pay the entrance fee and feel the history. Very impressive, many historical layers, use a good guidebook to get the most of it.

Just visited this beautiful church and luckily was there for the festival associated with Saint Andrew. What an event! But the church itself is equal to most churches in Rome. As said in another review entry to the church is free but the associated Cloister and crypt area is well worth the price of admission. Not to be missed!

The best view of the duomo is sat having a beer in the town square and look up and admire the architecture. After a drink climb the many steps and have a look inside. A favorite venue for many local weddings.
