The main church is large and impressive, with a fine gilded ceiling and much marble and stonework. Then you enter the Chapel of St. Gennaro, and the gilt, silver, marble inlays, paint, ironwork, frescoes and decoration in general is enough to take your breath away. It is baroque to end all baroque. On the other side of the main church,... More

interesting and large, but nothing really inside, some cafes. Also, most of the Duomo is currently covered in scaffolding.

Situated in the historic center of Naples, the Duomo is on Via Duomo, not far from Via dei Tribunali and very close to the fabulous Pio Monte della Misericordia. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Naples. Whilst this was a Gothic Duomo built in the 13th century, it has been remodeled numerous times over the centuries and definitely... More

The outside of this Cathedral is relatively understated (and without a wide-angle lens, a bit hard to photograph), but the inside is grand and glittering, with lots of small corners and side chapels worth exploring. It's also cool, free, and quiet - all good things in Naples!

As fine a church as you will see in Italy - in my opinion, as nice as the Duomo in Florence or the one in Milan. One of the top sites in Naples. Take your time and see all of the side chapels, some are magnificent. There is even a small brochure to visiting tourists from the Cardinal - nice... More

It is such a magnificent place! Impressive in size but as well in history speaking through the icons, sculptures, small elaborate chapels and stained glass! It makes you feel tiny like a bug but in the same time wonder about humans' talent and power of crativity! Everyone should visit it!

A breathtakingly cathedral that draws the Eye as you approach.The inside isn't too shabby either!. I would have loved a detailed guide book to this place to bring it all together,all the different centuries.The artwork there is beautiful and the cappella del resort is a must see, unfortunately as it was not May or Sept the saints blood was locked...

Of all the churches in Napoli, this is the most spectacular. Set back of Via Duomo, once inside it is a different world. The building is huge and has side chapels that are almost like churches within a church. Truly amazing and a must if you visit Naples

What an amazing cathedral. Almost easy to overlook from the demure exterior, but inside... Wow! Amazing example of its architecture and breathtaking artwork.

Just wait until you're inside. The interior is so richly decorated with that Napolese style. It's well worth a visit just to take it all in!
