The Salerno Duomo is considered the main tourist attraction in a non-touristed town. Sitting right in the middle of the historic centre of the town, the cathedral features a grand Romanesque entrance and 12th century bell tower. The star attraction is the crypt. The elaborate baroque design is considered one of the cultural and architectural treasures of Southern Italy. It... More

Must-must see in Salerno and on whole Amalfi coast! This is very interesting cathedral, ancient and with perfect atmosphere. I am sure that it is the best cathedral on the whole Amalfi coast, I strongly reccommend you to come here even if it takes some time for you to drive. Be sure to visit the crypt - it is really...

This cathedral and, especially, the beautiful crypt is one of the best churches I have seen. The only drawback is the lack of any official book/leaflet or shop in the cathedral or the nearby museum. This museum is well laid out, clean and also worth a visit. The pictures/images on the internet do not do justice to these buildings and... More

Walking round the old part of Salerno you come across the Duomo. It is definitely worth visiting and do not miss going down to the Crypt, really lovely. The courtyard with tombs and frescoes is very interesting.

Visited Salerno on a cruise ship and stumbled on the cathedral. We had done a lot of walking and mom did not want to walk up the steps, until I had a peak into the courtyard. That in itself was amazing, with tombs, frescos and Roman style ruins. We went into the cathedral itself and it was very plain. Lots... More

Some renovation work going on but beautiful church and the crypt is amazing. Centrally located. The doors seem to be shut but the church is accessible. Not sure about opening and closing times.

Gorgeous marble work. Downstairs there are cubby holes, covered in glass, that contain bones. In just the right light you can see the greasy forehead prints of the people who needed a closer look.
