Back in June when we visited Amalfi I had forgotten to mention this wonderful Duomo. Amalfi itself is not that big so when you pass through the main archway into the piazza, the Duomo just overtakes the landscape as you look to your right. It sits atop of what seems to be 100 or so steps. Do not miss the wonderful Frescos inside. Immediately next to the Duomo you can make your way to the Crypt. The crypt (which is below the Duomo) houses the head and bones of St.Andrew. They were moved here from Constantinople (Instanbul) in 1208 AD. The crypt is a church into itself and you access it by first going through the "Cloister" and museum. Venice has St. Mark, Rome St. Peter, Santiago De Compostela (Spain) has Santiago or St. James and Amalfi has St. Andrew. If visiting Amalfi don't miss it, it's worth it.

Lovely architecture, beautiful interior. The church is of reasonable size and they are not so strict with dress codes (i.e. shorts and sleeveless tops), worth a visit if you are visiting Almafi.

this is a lovely duomo but be prepared there are a lot of steps up to it the piazza is lovely but the closer you are to the duomo you pay more for what ever you want in the shops but if you walk up the hill the shops get cheaper the farther away from the duomo

The Duomo is a remarkable place considering we went to Amalfi to spend a week on the beach. The architecture and art in the Duomo are really quite amazing and the cloister is well worth the 3 euro admission price.

I go to Amalfi 2x a year and must say the Duomo in the Piazza is breathtaking. It is something you can not write about but must go see for yourself..
