The Cloister is located just off the cathedral. The cost is very reasonable. If you enjoy history and art then this would a good place to visit.

Nicely done space with gorgeous items on display with English as well as Italian captions. Not too crowded when we were there. Just a few minutes is all it takes.

Adjacent to the St Andrew Cathedral. There's a charge of 3 euro to enter, but it is well spent as you can admire the beautiful old Medieval frescoes on the walls of the old chapel/burial place. The courtyard is really beautiful with the tall palm trees in the middle.

An ancient cloister with Eastern influences, interesting medieval religious frescoes and some classical sarcophagi. Don't miss if you are visiting the Duomo.

We came across this beautiful spot in the morning while exploring. It is a lovely spot to stop and enjoy the quiet. Also, quite a lovely place for photographers.

After Climbing the steps of the duomo in Amalfi take a left turn and follow the signs...a small entrance fee gains you admission to the cloister, the museum, the crypt,and finally exit through the cathedral -surprisingly - no gift shop.
