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. I would almost rather have it that visitors end up there in the peaceful quiet of... More

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...

stunning and well worth it!!!! Look for the stunning view of the bell tower from the Northside and also marvel at the age of the crypt. I only wish there was a way to get an English tour of this church as there was a lot more to learn and the English small guide was not detailed enough

Dating from the 13 th century, the Cloisters of Paradise combine Romanesque simplicity and Moorish fantasy. Interlaced arches supported by 120 slender white columns arranged in double rows encircle a small garden. This was the cemetery for the noblemen of Amalfi and several remarkable sarcophagi can be found along the gallery. There are remains of the 12 th century Byzantine... More

Such a lovely place to visit. It seems as if the church has a common set of plans for all their cloisters.
