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

If you have time while waiting for a boat or a dinner, let visit it and also walk though the old city streets

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.

Another lovely cathedral, although the crypt is the most interesting part. Very quiet, hardly any other visitors.

Maybe I've just seen entirely too many churches and Duomos after living in Italy and traveling Europe for 2 years, but the church itself was certainly nothing to write home about. The downstairs crypt and altar were beautiful, but The Duomos and baptisteries of Florence, Pisa and Naples (just to name a few) and definitely St. Vitus' cathedral in Prague... More

In the basement of the Duomo, quite an elaborate cathedral, lies (supposedly) the body of Saint Matthew. It is a shrine, unlike any we have seen for a mortal man ..... now obviously elevated to another status. The crypt, inlaid marble, frescos, architecture .... are in the class of the most celebrated artifacts in the world. It left those of... More

Salerno is frankly not well-endowed with interesting places for historical sight-seeing and as a town does not compare well with the likes of many other places in Italy. This may be partly due to the mass destruction of much of the town during World War 2 when the Allies landed. However, to quote Meatloaf, there is a ruby in a... More

We enjoyed our stop to see the cathedral in Sorrento but the parking is a nightmare. We were there in February so I can't imagine what it is like in the summer. Do not drive a car into Salerno and expect to find a parking place. After finding two recommended restaurants, which were both closed (for the season?), we had... More
