Worth the climb

Great tour, very interesting. Lots of very cool architecture and artifacts. Worth the climb up the stairs. Inexpensive fun. Don't miss the underground section.

My aunt and myself visited this church last week. It is very unusual in it's colour and decoration I think. Very nice inside and a lovely view from the top of the steps of the little square. There are a lot of steps so if you're a bit unsteady on your feet take your time!

Such an important, historical building and the centre piece of the Good friday celebrations that took place while we were in Amalfi. As well as a great history, the Duomo is also the resting place of the remains of St Andrew, so great religious significance here too. It only takes a couple of hours max to take everything in, so...

This church has many beautiful historic paintings, statues, and even part of Saint Andrew's remains! It is well worth the visit (and the €3 fee). It was very interesting to read about the history of the church in the brochure and to see the old church. My favourite part was the paintings on the ceilings which depicted different parts of...

I haven't followed a tour but was just wandering around. OMDG the Duomo is SO beautiful! It is worth coming to Amalfi just to see it. The charge is 3 EUR + a free brochure. Photography is allowed. I will also recommend to take a stroll on the old Amalfi streets - its such an amazing experience! They are very... More

We stopped here on our excursion around Amalfi coast. The approach to the Cathedral is spectacular, so colorful, lots of steps, the green dome, then brown stripes, and the amazing old bronze doors. 3 euro gets you to see the cloister (average), the museum (small but interesting), the crypt (so incredible - with all the marbile, tile, paintings, the statue...

There are four distinct parts of this tour: the cloister with frescoes, a Brasilia which used to be the old church and now a museum, the crypt of Saint Andrew which is amazing, and the fantastic cathedral with two granite columns "borrowed" from Paestum. It's a beautifully kept church we'll worth the 3 Euro admission.

It's a very interesting cathedral with mixed style of architecture, beautiful artwork and worth a quick visit but doesn't stand out. Cloisters are also pretty.

I highly recommend the organised tour of the Cathederal (Duomo) which was started 1100 years ago, and is said to enshrine the relics of the apostle St Andrew. During the top of the season there are as many as 5 or 6 weddings there a day! Folks come from all over the World and indeed Italy to marry in the... More

One of the most beautiful structures along the scenic Amalfi coast. The church is free to tour. After touring get some gelato, sit atop the church steps and take in the square below. It gets busy during high tourist season and later in the day. We didn't take the offered tour, we just used our guide book and did it... More
