The Duomo in Salerno is absolutely Beautiful. When visiting the church don't miss the crypt of St Matthews! It was absolutely fantastic with beautiful painting in the ceiling and artwork in marble on the walls.

In the heart of the old Town in Salerno. We visited twice whilst there and were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the Decoration in the Crypt. It was Breathtaking and a must for anyone visiting Salerno.

Have visited lots of churches! But this is a real gem! Salerno is not good at advertising. This is a beautiful church! However there is a an entrance on the left hand side with a small notice with crypt written on it. Go see it!...More

Hidden gem of church. Take the time to walk the streets and soak in all the history. Can't get enough of all the fresco. Sit and listen.

We visited on our last day in Salerno. It is a stunning crypt, with a small entry fee of €1 per person. Even for the non religious, the detail and quality of the painted walls and ceilings make it worth a visit.

There is no entrance fee, and by the way don't forget to visit the crypt.
