“Beautiful and quiet in the middle of Chaos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We had not planned to spend time in the town of Amalfi, but other considerations made it occur. So we made a point to visit the cathedral and attached cloister. The Cathedral is huge and occupies the main square of town. There is a long flight of stairs to the entrance making it appear even larger. The Cloister is truly beautiful and quiet. It is a haven from the noise of all the tourists out in the streets.

“An eye opener”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

A revelation - quite refreshing and an eye opener. We had no prior knowledge of the history of the place.

“Center of Town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

When you reach the main plaza of Amalfi, the church is the center attraction. It is very pretty. Take the tour as it doesn't cost much. There are a lot of artifacts from prior popes on display.

“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

One of the most beautiful cloisters I have ever seen and I get to see many! The white arches and pillar form a harmony of shapes and patterns that make it look very modern despite its ancient roots.
