I don’t think I’ll ever tire of taking photographs of Amalfi’s Duomo of Sant’ Andrea. There’s something so intriguing to me about the design and its situation at the top of the grand staircase watching over all the activity in the town’s main piazza. While walking down the 62 steps a few weeks ago, I turned around and looked up to this dramatic view of the facade and campanile. I’m sharing it with you this week in anticipation of the Festival of Sant’ Andrea, which is next week on November 30th. You can see photos and read more about Amalfi’s most important religious holiday over at my Amalfi Coast Local Flavor Blog for NileGuide. This year I’ll be sharing photos and videos of events at both blogs. Stayed tuned!
Lovely shot, do not think I have ever counted the steps 🙂
Ciao Linda! I counted them for a silly project I was working on. 🙂

I am an American who has lived in Cava dei Tirreni for 10 years. If you are going to be in Cava, give me a shout perhaps we can have a drink or something? I have some shots of the area at http://www.flickr.com/michaelinitaly
Ciao Michael! I just saw your photos today via Twitter – beautiful! Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comment. Cava de’ Tirreni is very nice, but I’ve only been there a few times. Would enjoy hearing about your experience living in the area! I will be in touch if I head that way, and please do let me know if you head to Amalfi one of these day. Ciao ciao!

Hello Laura, What a great post, your photo’s are so intriguing. I will be in Italy for some business this winter, and my wife and I will be visiting the Amalfi area Feb. 1-4 2011. It would be wonderful to meet you if that works with your schedule. I’m so excited about going into the church, as you know my family crest is there! Hope to see you in Amalfi. Chuck
Ciao Chuck! So great to hear from you! I’m so happy that you’ll be visiting the Amalfi Coast with your wife this winter. Yes, it would be lovely to meet up! What church are you looking to go to in particular – Amalfi or Scala? Drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org before you leave and we can make some plans!
