Again we headed north off the Corso Umberto I and got to this beautiful Duomo in Via Duomo. Otherwise called Naples Cathedral or Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta or Cathedral of San Gennaro, it is a Roman Catholic cathedral and the main church of Naples. The San Gennaro or Saint Januarius was the city's patron saint. We approached, passing over... More

The sheer size of the Duomo is enough to keep you occupied. The real treasure is the Capella San Gennaro that holds the skull of Patron Saint San Gennaro. I'd recommend taking a seat in one of the pews and just take it all in and look up to the fresco on the ceiling. After spending a week in Naples... More

Very beautiful as are many churches and cathedrals I have visited in Italy, this one has an interesting story about San Gennaro.

I only viewed the exterior – but it was impressive and worth it! A film shoot was being done in the front of the Duomo. The streets of Napoli is busy, filled with students, tourists and apparently shoots. Worth the walk.

The cathedral hosts a famous relic of San Gennaro's blood (patron of Naples). The interior is pretty, but there's nothing really outstanding inside, just a typical southern-Italian cathedral. Better see Il Gesu or San Domenico Maggiore if you have limited time in NAples.

Nice duomo, especially impressed by the bombastic main altar. However, if you've visited the duomo's of Rome, Florence, Siena and Lucca the days before like we did, nothing really new (I know, I'm spoiled). We visited Naples for a day and I also have to say that we didn't like the atmosphere of the centro historico where the duomo is... More

When in Napoli this is a must! The interior is amazing. Between the artwork and the architecture itself, everywhere you look there's something beautiful. Don't miss the Baptistry or Crypt as both are small areas of the church

We visited the cathedral having obtained a map from the tourist office at Naples Garibaldi station and the lady in there said it was a must. Easy to find. Some beautiful architecture and art work. Also had the added bonus that suddenly the bridal March started playing when we were inside and the next thing the was a wedding ceremony!... More

The church in itself is rich and nice. Some of you could be dissappointed for not finding un "duomo" like in Firenze. BUT on the right side you must not miss the San Gennaro Chapell and on the opposite the other Chapell (1,50 €) and the IVth century battistero

This Duomo (Cathedral of San Gennaro) was built in the 13th & 14th centuries. To say that the architecture is Impressive would be an understatement of great proportion. The sculptures and paintings are so vivid that they see to "pop" right off of the walls or ceiling. This is a "must see" if you are in the area - I... More
