Photo Friday: Architectural Layers

Duomo of Salerno Atrium

The architecture of the Amalfi Coast is endlessly fascinating to me, and the Duomo of Salerno is one of my favorite spots in Campania. I took this photo in the beautiful atrium looking up to the 12th-century bell tower. To learn more and see more photos (including one of the crypt you won’t want to miss!), visit CharmingItaly where you can read my article on Salerno’s Cathedral of San Matteo.

    Absolutely beautiful pictures of Saint Matthews. I’m thinking of making Salerno another stop on the Amalfi trip from Sorrento. Thanks for sharing Laura!

      Ciao Mike! Glad you enjoyed the photo. Salerno is a great city … bigger city feel, but on a manageable and more intimate scale. I love going there for shopping and just walking along the waterfront. During the summer months there are regular ferries that connect Salerno with Amalfi and Positano, too!

    Your pictures are Beautiful. We’ve been to Sarno, before and after 1998 (?) floods, and some neighboring villages. I think we have to add Salerno as a stop next time.

      Ciao Gil! I think you’d enjoy a stop in Salerno. The Duomo is extraordinary, and walking through the historic center with all the little shops is nice. The city has in some way the feel of Naples, but on a smaller scale … and it is much cleaner and safer, too. The promenade along the waterfront is beautiful!

      Thanks for stopping by, Lori! I love to share photographs and stores from the Amalfi Coast for others who love it just as much as I do! 🙂
