You get to see this as a part of your paid ticket entrance to the Church. There is not that much to see but the architecture of the cloisters is pretty special as is the view of the church tower from the back of the cloisters

This was just a few Euro's but worth it. There is multiple sections to the attraction and you go at your own pace. They have a restroom but you need to ask for it. Even if you are not religious it is worth a look!

You have to pay 3€ to enter via the museum so if it just the church then avoid the pay entrance. We paid the museum has a few interesting relics and the crypt which quite stunning the statue of St Andrew is amazing. The cathedral is very tranquil and well worth spending a quite few moments in.

The Chiostro del Paradiso is outstanding. A great place to take photographs or to relax in simple contemplation from the hustle and bustle of Amalfi's main square

by far one of the best examples of the Moorish influence on the Catholic Church and society in general on the great sea faring traders of Amalfi. The History of the Apostle St Andrews bones buried beneath the Cloisters is another bonus to the visit!

You really should see the Cloister of Paradise if you're in Amalfi. Some of the artwork and carvings are ancient, and the courtyard itself is lovely.

For only €3. You can visit the crypt with the most amazing fresco's and the bronze statue of the apostle Andrew, sculpted by a pupil of Michael Angelo. Don't miss.

This is a beautiful inner courtyard or Cloister. The Frescos and statues that surround it are beautiful and the design of the columns is very interesting.

This is a quiet spot away from the bustle of Amalfi's shops and part of the cathedral complex. The cloister contains some ancient sarcophagi but it is the tranquility that will strike you most forcefully

The cloisters are very peaceful, take your time to admire the artifacts around that walls and the artwork. If you are on a day trip from Sorrento, enjoy the tranquility, as your return journey may be fraught. The SITA bus is pandemonium, there is no information or queueing system, as a result the re is a mad rush around the... More
