Given the other Churches in Italy this one did not in my opinion warrant stopping off to see and apart from the Duomo there's very little else to recommend Salerno for, sorry!

We walked down to the Dumo, where we found ourselves looking at some fantastic mosaics. The Crypt was also beautifully decorated with frescoes and scenes of Salerno. We walked around to the museum of the Duomo, where there were these fantastic carved ivory squares from 1084 and later, showing scenes from the Bible.

it definitively worths a visit. In the historic centre of Salerno it's the best conclusion of a walk in the area. It belong to a very interesting historical period of the city of Salerno. After that go to the sea side of the area and get a little treat enjoying an excellent "Gelato" (ice cream) in one of the many... More

Duomo stands at the narrow street and its front looks at the neighboring buildings. Squeezed, just like everything else in Sorrento, you might have some troubles finding it, unless you got GPS. But, once there, you'll be surprised to see what's behind the huge staired entrance. Inside, plenty of carved stone and magnificent mosaics will amaze you. See the images,... More

Beautiful cathedral, and a must-see. The crypt especially was fantastic. While it doesn't hold up to many Roman churches, it is the best in the region, and needs to be seen.

An amazing cathedral, so light and airy considering that it was built in the 11th century. In the church itself there are some amazing mosaics, but the highlight is the crypt. Amidst a forest of pillars there is the supposed tomb of St Matthew, but the best part is the ceiling, completely covered by brilliant frescoes of scenes from the... More

Although the City of Salerno itself is nothing to write home about, it is worth going simply for the Duomo! The main church is light an airy, with beautiful frescoes, however, it is the crypt that makes it worth the visit. It is a glorious confection of coloured marble. A delight and a total surprise! A gorgeously over the top... More

I had a couple of hours in Salerno and didn't know what to do. Se I've check Trip Advisor and saw some good reviews about this place.. But, woooooow! I was not expecting this. It's amazing. The door was closed, it was almost 6 PM, so thought it was closed. Some reviews here sad to open the door anyways, and... More
