Beautiful ceilings and impressive façade around the relics of St. Andrew. A breath of peace and meditation in the midst of a very touristy town.

This Church truly stands out. You cannot miss its amazing architecture when you walk toward the piazza. Worth a visit if you are headed up to Ravello.

Worth checking out if you are in Amalfi, it's all of 50-60 steps up to see inside and the artwork inside on the ceiling is beautiful.

The Duomo in Amalfi is one place you must visit, it has to be seen to be believed. As you walk round the corner into the square you see this spectacular building, it takes your breath away. The outside is stunning with its architecture and this is only the start! There is a small charge to enter but worth every... More

For only a couple of euro's you can spend plenty of time in this most beautiful building, its a suprise when you enter which I will not spoil. Ladies cover your shoulders, there are scarves to borrow if needed. 100% do not miss a visit.

Absolutely beautiful inside and out, a wonderful atmosphere. Free shawls to borrow if you're not dressed modestly, a lovely little guide book and the attendants were pleasant.

Begin your visit to Amalfi if arriving by car by parking in the subterranean parking Garage Luna Rosso and following the underground tunnels that lead you into town. The Cathedral of St. Andrew is reached from the Piazza Duomo up a magnificent staircase. While founded in the 9th Century much of its Romanesque bones are covered by 19 th century... More

Wonderful facade with so much detail.If you are visiting try and see the exterior at different times of day as the colours change with the sun. An amazing feat of architecture even if you are not religious. Just remember no bare shoulders and not too short shorts if visiting inside. You won't need directions!

This is one worthwhile visit. You have to enter via the cloisters and it might seem a bit dull at first. Once you get to the cript, things start looking up, it gets even better when you get into the cathedral. Do not miss this when in Amalfi.

The exterior has been restored, but the church is stunning with its Romanesque arches as well as other architectural styles. Looking up the steps at the church you feel how it dominates the city square in Amalfi with the Gothic latticework exterior in the narthex area. As you walk in, you enter The Cloister of Paradise. It's one of the... More
