Built to house the tombs of Amalfi's wealthy families, its arcades and white Arabic looking columns are beautiful. In the middle is a small garden and ancient relics and art works can be seen in the walkways.

Well worth a visit if you are in Amalfi. Not expensive and beautiful inside. Even our 14 year old Daughter found this visit interesting

Part of the Duomo Complex in the heart of Amalfi and which was our favorite site to visit along with the Cathedral. Peaceful and quiet with a small museum. From here we went on to the Cathedral.

The cloister itself is small and no big deal, but it is part and parcel of the duomo complex and entrance leads you through it and then on to the museum (small but wonderful items), crypt (old church, beautiful), and then the duomo itself.

the museum is average with a small collection. not much in the form of exhibits. the basement/crypt is small. in spite of the average grade would still recommend a visit. Entry is 3 euros for adults and 1 euro for children. the adjoining church is free which is very tranquil.

The Cloister should be part of your visit to the Dumo. Buy the full ticket for all sites associated with the Duomo. Worth the money.

St. Andrew’s Cathedral is the focal point of Amalfi Town, with its long, wide flight of stairs leading up from the Piazza Duomo to the Cathedral’s black-and-white Entry. The alternating black and white stonework which adorns the façade of the Church, is another commonality with Monterosso. It gives the Cathedral a Moorish appearance, though I am told there is no...
