Duomo di Sant'Andrea, Amalfi

4.8
Remodeled many times since the ninth century, Duomo di Sant'Andrea is home to the Crypt of St. Andrew. Two crosses--one a 13th-century wooden crucifix, the other mother of pearl brought from the Holy Land--represent two different periods in the cathedral's history. The bronze doors of the church were cast in the city of Constantinople before 1066, making them the city's earliest architectural feature of post-Roman manufacture. Visit the gardens, where arches, colonnades, and sculptures blend in with the colorful landscaping.

  • When you arrive in the square has caught sight of this stairway that ends with the colorful façade of the Duomo. It seems out of proportion to the rest, wedged between buildings and streets. Inside unfortunately not illuminated, phones that there are tourist information seem really old and dirty and not encourage usage. Maybe put some information written in multiple languages could help the visitor to understand and know what they are watching. A little thing, but it may improve

  • The outside is very nice, but the inside is even more impressive. It is typical and maybe less "rich" than cathedral in major cities (like Rome or Venice) - but it is quite impressive for that locatio...  more »

Where to stay in Amalfi

Amalfi abounds in luxurious villas and hotels offering rooms with panoramic views of the coastline. Centrally located hotels provide a convenient base for day trips to the surrounding area, but if you wish to explore the famous coastline on a limited budget, edge-of-town B&Bs offer a good alternative the more expensive town center. Amalfi has a good public transport network, so you won't need a private car to get around. Unlike fashionable resorts, small B&Bs also offer free access to good beaches.
