A very nice and warm church overlooking a beautiful piazza. Whenever you are visiting Amalfi never miss visiting this church and getting the blessings of St. Andrew (one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ) whose relics are there.

I loved it all! What can I say? The cathedral was breathtaking! I loved going up the steps and looking down to the square! The marble, the structure! Everything! I felt like going up to the Italian heaven of architecture beauty

Even if you don't want to pay the 3€ fee, this is a must see in Amalfi from the piazza or at the top of the steps to have a view on the city. This fee is worth it because you can visit both cloister, basilica and cathedral (with crypt). This makes a nice side trip (with the small streets... More

Climb the steps to the top and you will have a commanding view of the town. It is free to climb the steps and check out the hallway but once you turn right to see further there is a fee. The church has a museum and beautiful ornate decors inside.

Whether you have Christian faith or not, this is a stunning building. The site, atop 60 steps, gives a commanding view of the piazza and town below. The external black-and white stonework is tremendous, along with the slightly Moorish domes. Fine art and stonework continues in the cloisters and inside the church, but for me the highlight was in the... More

incredible mix of architectural stiles and influences, stunning, and a cloister is a must-see, feels very oriental and exotique

Must visit Duomo where one of the Apostle Saint Andrew is buried. Beautiful church in the Piazza Flavio Gioia with steps leading up to the front entrance of the church. You can enjoy a galeto sitting on the steps and watch the people in the piazza. FYI: there are two banks right in the piazza with ATM.

it wasn't until I had climbed the steps and paid 3 Euros until I realised this was the actual/apparent resting place of St Andrew. As a Scot and graduate of St Andrews University I was both amazed and rather moved. It is a really impressive, peaceful building too.

San'Andrea is Saint Andrew, one of the 12 Apostles sent out by Christ to spread the word across the globe. This is magnificent church in a small coastal town, and the dedication to God is tremendous. The artwork is sublime and just being there over the remains of one of Christianity's most powerful figures is humbling. Saint Andrew's church dominates... More
