- Budget


Discover treasures from Amalfi's powerful past, and (possibly) the blood of St Andrew.

Possibly the best 3 euros you'll spend all trip, the entrance price to the Duomo's Cloister is nothing compared to the return; head up the steps to the Duomo and to the left you'll find the 'Cloister of Paradise', where Amalfi's noblemen were buried in the 13th century. Here you'll find the remains of Byzantine pulpits inlaid with mosaic, along with Greek-carved tombs and frescoes. On into the Basilica, now a museum, where there are treasures including a bejewelled Angevin mitre and a 13th-century chalice, along with a bishop's sedan chair. Lastly, the crypt, where the bones of Jesus's first disciple, Andrew, are said to be held. Take a moment to examine the 17th-century ceiling frescoes as you sit in front of the painting of St Andrew.
