Naples medieval cathedral known as Duomo di Santa Maria Assunta or Duomo di San Gennaro was established in the 4th century. In 1407 it suffered damages from an earthquake. The church has a large nave with over 100 granite columns which were imported from the Far East and Africa. Most of the interior decor is baroque-style. There are sundry portraits... More

The oldest part in the Duomo is the side chapel of Santa Restituta, the early nedieval basilica, dating back to 450 AC whereas the Duomo was built in the 12th century. The other side chapel, the Capella del Tesoro di San Gennaro was erected in the early 1600's and houses the bust of San Gennaro, a marsterpiece of gothic craftmanship... More

The very name Duomo Di Naples conjures up a majestic cathedral the likes of those seen in another Italian city's such as Siracusa in Sicily. However this Duomo is rather drab by comparison and very dark and underwhelming compared to other churches we visited in Naples. A positive note must go to the stunning display of flowers when we visited... More

Definitely worth a visit, but probably not our favourite church in Naples (of which there are many!) Friendly staff and rather quiet when we visited, which was very welcome.

Not one of those architecturally amazing cathedrals. The usual pleasant atmosphere and worth popping in for a few minutes if passing. Surrounded by shops specialising in vestments for priests and choir boys, wedding dress shops and religious souvenir shops. Vaguely interesting.

Wasn't so impressed about this Duomo. Location is not so good because we should search it quite long time to find this.

I'm afraid this is not what you would expect from the Cathedral of a major city in Italy ... the interior (with the exception of the St. Gennaro chapel) is totally underwhelming. Really disappointing

Seen the Duomos in: Seville, Cordoba, Milan, Rome, Venice, florence, Barcelona, Piza, and now Napoli. This was nowhere near as good as any other. I don't particularly want to run down a house of God, but the authorities could do more to bring it up to what it should be and what it represents.
