Sit and enjoy this church. At three euros a person this is got to be the best deal going in Amalfi. It's stunningly beautiful, and they have a printed brochure explaining some of the relics and artifacts. The frescoes upstairs were beautiful, and we weren't expecting that the crypt would be as stunning as it was. Take your time and... More

The crypt of Saint Andrew, the apostle to Christ, in the lower portion of the Amalfi Cathedral was completed in 1208 to house the relics (bones) of Saint Andrew which were brought to Amalfi in from Constantinople 1204 by Archbishop Pietro Capuano following the fourth crusade. The crypt is entered from the cathedral museum housed in the top level of... More

This is the most beautiful building in Amalfi, it is well worth climbing the steps to the top for a lovely view over the piazza. It only costs 3 Euros to enter, but sadly I didn't have time to go in. Sit on the steps for a good vantage point to people watch!

This is by some distance the most interesting attraction in Amalfi. The gorgeous exterior is matched by interesting things to see inside, including the highly decorative marble crypt of San Andrea, which is said to contain some relics of the Apostle St Andrew. For me the most fascinating part was the Moorish style courtyard when you first enter the building.... More

After so long at last I was able to visit the duomo! It is magic amazing place full of art and history. Amalfi was a powerful marine republic during middle age ! You can spot this glorious past in this imposing church . The "chiostro" the crypt, are jewels of art and architecture. Worth going there once in life!

The most impressive buiding in the town,you cannot miss it.An majestic staircase is leading you to the main entrance. If you pay a small fee you can visit the crypt and the cloister. Worth a short visit.

This is a truly amazing place to visit; it is to quote another reviewer, just stunning and better by far than anything that Naples has to offer. A magnificent facade atop a huge staircase and internal artwork of amazing beauty; the cloisters which were being expertly worked upon were so peaceful and you really shouldn't miss out on them.

The cathedral is lovely, but just wait until you see the crypt - it's absolutely stunning. A great place to just take a short time out from the bustling streets of Amalfi and absorb the peace and beauty.

If you are in Amalfi you can't miss this! It is in the center square. We were just visiting the town for about 2 hours and stopped here for a couple pictures.

The church was welcoming visitors even though mass was due to start. The ceilings are wonderful as are some of the little chapels. I did not have time to read up on the Duomo first and would visit again. The outside façade is really stunning.
