Amalfi Cathedral

Supportico Sant'Andrea, Amalfi, SA 84011

The Amalfi Coast is a sparkling Meditteranean gem complete with gorgeous beaches, charming islands, hillside towns and giant cliffs that tower over the turquoise waters below.

Amalfi Cathedral

Another thing the Amalfi Coast, and the town of Amalfi itself, is known for is its architecture.

Whether it’s the vibrant pastel coloured houses dotting the hillsides, the glorious Arab-style Villa Rufolo or the incredible Amalfi Drive, this wondrous part of Italy is full of stunning architecture that has to be seen to be believed.

One of the great testaments to Roman Catholic architecture in the region is the Amalfi Cathedral, or Duomo di Amalfi. This absolutely beautiful cathedral is dedicated to Saint Andrew, whose relics are housed there and available to see in the apostle’s crypt.

Visitors marvel at the cathedral’s stunning design, which has been altered and added to over the years to create a kind of visual timeline of the region. The cathedral itself is full of elegant columns, pristine gardens and an incredible silver bust of Saint Andrew (among other stylish adornments).

Even if you are only spending a short amount of time in Amalfi, be sure to visit this astounding cathedral, in all its perfectly-designed beauty.

After wandering the fine halls of the Amalfi Cathedral, it’s time to experience some of the other joyous offerings the wonderful Amalfi Coast has in store, and why it’s such a memorable place for lovers of all things sunny and Mediterranean.

Visit Capri

Capri is an island synonymous with a-listers and jetsetters, but today it is accessible to even backpackers on a shoestring! The island is replete with sumptuous cuisine, beautiful buildings, gorgeous beaches and upscale shopping, making it a versatile place to visit for anyone who finds themselves on this most stunning of coasts.

Be sure to take your time on the island, after all – it’s the Meditteranean way! Stroll around the immaculate Gardens of Augustus that is also known for providing a great view of the Faraglioni rock formations and heading into the Blue Grotto, a surreal cave passage forming out of the Capri coastline.

Try limoncello

The Amalfi Coast is famous as the centrepoint of limoncello production, so there is no better place to try it than at one of the region’s vibrant seaside bars. Be sure to match it with some delightful local cuisine and you have yourself the ultimate Amalfi appetiser!
