A wander around the old town was quite beautiful and, of course, the obligatory stop in a cathedral and/or church. The cathedral was interesting and peaceful but be prepared to be amazed by the crypt - do not walk past the discreet sign pointing down the stairs - a spectacular sight with some very interesting history and cremated remains!

If you visit the duomo - pleasant enough- do visit the crypt - free-the nicest I have ever seen anywhere. Dedicated to San Matteo , it is light and airy, non putrid smelling, lovely marble floors and fabulous paintings...

The San Matteo Duomo in Salerno is full of history, art and antiquities. The mosaics, the Cript, the columns all full of historical meanings. The Pope Gregory the VII was there and died there while in exile from Rome, the relics of the Saints and so much much more.

Exceptional must see. Entering thru the main doors you will already be taken by the grandness of the Place. The origins of art go back to sixth century at least. Admire the Intersed mosaic monumental sculptures inside, like the intricate designed pulpit. Do not miss the crypt, soon you go down the stairs into the crypt you will be elated... More

The church looks very ordinary on the outside and inside it is huge with old mosaics. When you go through the door on the left near the front and down the stairs, it is totally different and mindblowing. Beautifully painted and lots of gold. Best bit was that it is free and no crowds. We were the only ones there!

The vaulted crypt in the Duomo di Salerno is an amazing visual feast of marbled walls and dozens of ceiling frescoes depicting scenes from the Gospel of St Matthew and some historical scenes from Salerno. In the outside portico there are some fascinating Roman Sarcophagi.

The Duomo was quite deserted when I visited it at about 3 PM on a Saturday. This made it a very peaceful experience. I was able to explore it fully without dealing with crowds. The crypt is quite magnificent as are the mosaics in the main cathedral.

The crypt is really amazing with beautifull paintings on the ceiling. Also on the right side there is s small chapel where small services are held. Make sure you do not skip this historic place and also have a coffee or icecream in the small cafe accross the duomo.

So much history here and around you . Make sure to go downstairs to the crypt. Couldn't find a handout but then again, it's an active church. Do some research before you go.

The Duomo di Salerno is a beautiful, history building with lovely mosaics. But I though the crypt was the highlight of our visit. Amazingly ornate and beautifully lit. Don't miss the crypt!
