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

During the Reformation most churches had all there walls removed of artwork but the original artwork is still there. Itis interesting to see that churches were once works of art.

Beautiful place in the middle of the city. There is a lots of steps to reach the church, we travel with small chiId and I was in 7 months of pregnancy so we wasn´t inside, but its perfect just to sit in the square, watch the people and perceive the atmosphere.

This church is a big surprise in the middle of Amalfi. The quick visit takes you to three different parts, the convent, the crypt and the church. A few steps to reach the top and a few more inside.

Boyfriend and I were staying in nearby Ravello and regularly walked into Amalfi. The cathedral in Amalfi is quite a surprise with far more to see than you might think initially and definitely worth the small entrance fee. The crypt is the most lavish area - truly lovely. There are lots of steps to access the cathedral from the front... More

I do not agree with paying to enter churches but can overlook the small inclusive charge to see the cloisters, the basilica, the museum, the crypt and the cathedral. Each on its own merits worth viewing but together magnificent. Apart from the drive or boat ride to get there Amalfi has little to show for its celebrity status on the... More
