    Overwhelming, but Worth it
    My wife and I had previously been to Naples three times, but had never before been to the Duomo. That was our loss. First, there is no charge to enter the Duomo. If we’re ever lucky enough to get back to Naples, we’ll be sure to allow at least half a day for the Duomo. It’s gigantic, it’s truly magnificent, and it’s a very complex structure. The Duomo has total of ten side chapels (five on each side). A large chapel inside the Duomo on the right side, known as the Chapel of St. Januarius (San Gennaro), displays gorgeous artwork in every medium you can think of. But that Chapel is just a tease for the exhibits displayed in the spectacular Museum of the Treasures of San Gennaro (Museo del Tesero di San Gennaro), the entrance to which is located outside and just to the right of the Duomo. There is a 10€ fee to enter the museum. A large chapel inside the Duomo on the left side is the Basilica of Santa Restituta, the oldest basilica in Naples, which holds the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Fonte, the oldest surviving baptistery from medieval Europe. There is no fee to enter the Basilica, but there is a 2€ fee to enter the Baptistery of San Giovanni in Fonte. Formerly accessible from the Basilica of Santa Restituta is a subterranean archaeological zone, which includes catacombs and remains of Greek and Roman buildings and roads (the archaeological zone is now closed indefinitely.) The spectacular Museum of the Treasures of San Gennaro (Museo del Tesero di San Gennaro) is located in just to the right of the Duomo. Be sure to GO TO THE MUSEUM; it’s worth it.

    You´ll need more than an hour
    The cathedral of Santa maria Assunta has an elegant facade; the rest of the exterior is covered with neighboring buildings, but not much is missed. The imposing interior deserves a close look to all the chapels. Two side chapels are specially spectacular, the one in the right nave devoted to San Gennaro and the one in the left nave, the old Santa Restituta byzantine Basillica. You can admire both free of charge ( San Gennaro will need some time, with all its baroque ornaments) but also both sell tickets to special exhibitions very worthy. San Gennaro holds the cathedral’s treasure (among them, a mitre that rivals a king’s crown) and Restituta has a Saint John protochristian baptistery, with remains of the original mosaics.

    Nice church and worth a visit. Naples is a city full of nooks and crannies that you discover by walking and this church is tucked away in this city. Worth a trip. Wear "decent clothes" as there are guards who prevent you from entering if you are wearing short skirts, showing your shoulders, shorts etc. I am not kidding, If you bring a shawl or something to cover yourself they allow you in.

    A little bit of peace in the heart of Naples
    I've got to be honest, this isn't the most amazing cathedral you'll ever visit but it's worth visiting and having a wander around. Probably spent about 15mins inside. There is a museum inside that you have to pay for but we didn't do that. It wasn't that crowded so it was nice to spend some time in stillness before venturing out into crazy Naples again.

    Catch the relics of San Gennaro, and the devotion they inspire in Neapolitans
    This beautiful cathedral houses the remains of the great patron saint of Naples, San Gennaro. This relics are viewable in a crypt under the altar. Many of the side altars are beautifully rendered with typical Neapolitan touches. The building is just north of the Spaccanapoli and easy to find.

Duomo is stunning with so many things to look at. Walked through a very quiet church everyone was respectful. I was really impressed by the dark marble statues on the altar
The surrounding areas are being updated which I can accept, but the litter and dog mess is appalling. Not to mention the homeless camp to the right of the cathedral and the beggars to the left. You’d hope the rich and powerful church would try and help these people.

I actually saw this in October 2018, but my memory should be good enough for a solid review.

I arrived just before it was closing for a lunch break and was told in English by a very friendly man working there (as my knowledge of Italian won't get me far), when it was going to open again. I returned when it was open and it's truly stunning, the skill required is hard to believe. Crowd-wise, I didn't find it difficult to see what I wanted and take photos. There is no fee to enter, but I think a donation is appreciated.

I wouldn't miss visiting il Duomo di Napoli, especially as its a Naples icon.

A gem of art and architecture in the center of Naples. I visited the Duomo with my family on August 2021 and I found it amazing. You will be impressed by the wall paintings and the glorious statues of this duomo.
It is unique because inside the Duomo is St. Januarious Chapel. Three times a year, St. Januarius renews his bond with Naples and his blood dissolves in front of thousands of citizens!!!
Don't miss it!

Let's face it:
the main reason why people go to this place is to see the relics (the blood of St. Gennaro) , protagonists of the famous miracle.
Unfortunately, when we went there, it was not possible to enter the room where the relics were kept and, perhaps because of this, we walked inside the church and enjoyed it very much (even the paid part). The structure is impressive and rich in history, so it is a must-see!

I wasn't staying that far from the Duomo, which is closed at certain times of the day, so check before you visit.
I went early on a Monday morning, and walked straight in, there are no entrance fees apart from the baptistry and a chapel. The crypt was closed due to the current situation. face coverings are required whilst inside.
The Duomo was beautiful, and you spend a lot of your time looking up, as that is where you find the finer details.

This Duomo, out of the sudden rising in the city center in Napels, is a gorgeous church with fantastic paintings and statues. It is one of the better duomos I have seen in Italy. Wander around for half an hour and enjoy it's beauty. You can go down into the basement, which wasn't to interesting, but the side rooms upstairs are absolutely worth visiting. This is a great sight in Napels.

I’ve visited it before, but this time I brought my aunt and she was in awe. She was very impressed with the beauty of the cathedral and excited about seeing the place where the miracle of the blood of Saint Januarius is performed. Downstairs there is the crypt of St. Januarius with his relics and a very special atmosphere. We really enjoyed visiting this place. Not to mention the stunning exterior.

It is free to go in and walk around on your own. They do have details in many languages next to the saints and sculptures but I'm sure a guided tour would be amazing if you are into hearing about the different saints and popes. But my goodness the inside is just stunning!!! I was in complete awe seeing the amazing sculptures and art work. The altar was just a complete masterpiece. You definitely need to come by this church if you are in Naples/Napoli.
