Create an itinerary including Duomo di Napoli
Completed in the 14th century, Duomo di Napoli was built on the foundation of two palaeo-Christian basilicas, traces of which can still be seen today. When you visit this Catholic cathedral, be sure to look for the fourth-century mosaics. The grand Royal Chapel of the Treasure of San Gennaro contains famous frescoes by Domenichino and a reliquary by 14th-century French masters. Those of a squeamish disposition should skip the caskets of human bones. The cathedral operates a strictly modest dress code.

  • Amazing Cathedral and well worth paying to see the Chapel on the right and the baptistry on the left. Spectacularly beautiful.

  • One of the most impressive buildings in Naples. The inside looks even better then the outside. If you pay €2 you can see the most beautiful room you'll ever see
  • I think you should visit the Duomo as it is simply beautiful. The first thing that catch my eyes is the ceiling: it looks like not the usual church ceiling but rather a king’s palace ceiling. This makes it unique, must visit!
  • Some impressive, very early paeolo Christian ceiling mosaics and some frescoes. Then your usual enormous cathedral. Impressive collection of relics.
  • This cathedral is insane. I mean it puts other churches to shame. After seeing this one you are probably ruined for most of the churches in Naples because it is so beautiful. I can understand why people saw this back in the time and were believers.
  • Gorgeous cathedral. The entry is free and they allow you to visit the underground hall and a few other halls filled with history and beautiful sculptures.
