First of all, the highlight is in the basement at the end of the tour. This is where they have displayed the bones of the saint and the decor is amazing, especially the ceilings! If you are handicapped, there is one elevator to the right of the long outdoor staircase. Not sure how you would be able to navigate inside,... More

Great place to visit, the duomo is architecturally sound making it an amazing place for photographers. And although it is a torist attraction, even during the peaks of summer, it is not that busy. It is definitely worth the entrance fee

In spite of being the major tourist attraction in Amalfi, the 12 century Duomo was comparatively empty when we visited, allowing a quiet, peaceful wander through this very beautiful and historical church. The crypt of St Andrew was especially lovely and spiritual. Well worth the 3 euro each entry fee.

this is very much worth the experience. We found a lovely priest inside who could speak English and explained a lot to us about this 12th century church. This church houses the skull and bones of Jesus's apostle Andrew. There is a very good explanation guide in English which is given to you on entry. Well worth the small entry... More

This is a lovely space to spend an hour or two in - visit the Chiostro del Paradiso (I thiink it is) on the inside, check out the moorish influences. Then the Duomo, St. Andrew's crypt (try to catch a gathering-of-the-manna ceremony!), and the Cathedral. The front is of course also quite picturesque, and the Piazza Duomo has everything you'd...

This was our second time visiting Amalfi and the Duomo. Historically and artistically, it is well worth the steep climb.

Basking in a history from Roman /Greek days Amalfi itself is a well deserved exploration. The Cathedral or Duomo with its ninth century belltower which also acted as a watchtower boggles the imagination. The first glance at the verticality of its steps to the almost blinding glory of the centerpiece mosaic fills you with awe and an immediate reflex to... More

Lots of steps to climb but it's really worth it. Really mind boggling how they can build beautiful master pieces like this without electricity. If you stay at Albergo Sant' Andrea you can watch the people on the sitting on the steps.

Such a beautiful church right in the center of things. The doors are magnificent. The church towers over all the other buildings and is easy to see from the ocean.

Loved it Gino the preist gave us a tour around , it was very moving, trying to get up the stairs with a twisted ankle was a slight problem but luckily the meds kicked in. It was just adorable, sat on the stairs later on the evening took in the scenery whilst my friend got intoxicated
