I stood in front and thought, "is that it?". Then went inside and looked, and thought, "Is that it?.

I would like a dollar for every cathedral I have entered - but I found that this was the bottom of my list. It sure is NO Milan, or Chartreuse or Seville or Notre Dame. The front facade has almost nothing to catch your attention to focus on. I kept looking - but, 'That's it,' only came to mind. So... More

Known for its many names - Duomo di Napoli, Cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta or Cattedrale di San Gennaro, this grand roman catholic church stands centered in the city, quite close to San Lorenzo Maggiore. You need to reach the place on Via Doumo between Via Dei Tribunali and Via Donnaregina. This is one of the largest churches in the... More

Very impressive Cathedral! Amazing how many generations were building the Duomo: the construction started in the 13th century and spanned over centuries up to the 19th century when the Neo-Gothic facade was completed. The highlight of the interior is Royal Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro with fantastic silver statues and richly decorated high altar. This is a not... More

The baptistery and the church of St. Resituta (both 6th century) are to the side of the main cathedral, and you have to pay a small amount to see them. They're worth a visit - lovely mosaics. The cathedral itself is currently undergoing major restoration but is interesting. Our visit was made more pleasant by the fact they were playing... More

The cruise ship stopped in Naples for 11 hours. We booked a van for the day to visit Pompeii and Sorrento. This was our last place to visit. There are many Catholic churches in Naples. This is the main church of Naples. From the exterior it didn’t look like much, but the interior is gorgeous. Many classical granite columns made... More

We were met on the steps of the Duomo by one of the staff who offered to give us a tour and was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He patiently explained the history of the Duomo, the architecture and the history and was not pushy in any way; a lovely chap! It's a lovely place to visit, and it was... More

This isn't a quick 5-10 minute stop like my husband & I tried to do (had to catch a cruise ship). There is a lot to see here - all I can say is give yourself at least 30 minutes to be able to see and enjoy everything. Amazing artwork everywhere.

Took refuge in here on a rainy November day and very glad we did. The church is stunning, one of the most beautiful I have seen. Take your time to see it all, you can easily spend a couple of hours.

The left side of the duomo was under restoration when we were there. It is nice to see that they are preserving the site for future generations.

This place can take up to a half day to really see. My wife was knocked out by a cold and just wanted to sit in the pews, so I went exploring. You can find very neat details everywhere, lots of side chapels and spaces to hide art and artifacts. The church has two area of religious artifacts from saints... More
