Rich and magnificent and we were allowed access to almost every nook and cranny and corner of this most holy reverent and very richly decorated Roman Catholic Cathedral. Well maintained. Hermetically sealed ampule (on display) of blood from St. Januarius (San Gennaro) appears to liquefy up to three times per year, or when in the presence of certain Popes. Should... More

The crypt of San Gennario was quite interesting but otherwise this was just another big church with a lot of baroque ornamentation.

This is actually simple roman catholic church if you have visited basilicas like Saint Peter in Rome. However, it is still worth visiting the elaborate decoration and bear in mind that each church tells its own story ...

Unlike many churches, this place has no problem letting you wander around and take pictures with or without flash. There are even guards who are willing to serve as tour guides. The Chapel of S. Gennaro is an absolute must see along with the museum treasury located right next door to the Cathedral.

It was my first time to see holy states sculpted with dark materials, but they were not weird at all. Instead, they reflected lighter luster and created strong but harmonious contract against their lighter background. Special and beautiful !

Beautiful cathedral, but the chapel for Saint Gennaro is exceptional. Many interesting paintings and sculptures - nice castings from silver

It is really hard to find words to describe the beauty of this church. Visiting the Duomo of Naples must be a priority for whoever loves art and famous places of worship.

While our hotel was on Via Duomo we almost left Napoli without seeing this magnificent cathedral. Reason triumphed and before leaving Napoli we did visit the Duomo and payed our respect to the Saint of the city, San Genaro. A gem !

You can almost miss the church because the piazza in which it sits is unassuming but when you see it you can realise its beautiful architecture.
