Ravello Duomo (Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta e San Pantaleone)

Free admission
Piazza Duomo, Ravello, Amalfi Coast, Italy, 84010

The Basics

The Duomo overlooks the town’s main public square, often a stop on day tours that make their way down the Amalfi Coast from Naples or Sorrento. Travelers can easily explore the square and visit the church in an hour or so, leaving time to walk Ravello’s hairpin streets, many of which open to views of ravines and the Mediterranean.

Some guided tours begin at the cathedral and continue down toward the Valley of the Dragon (Valle del Dragone) and the next town below, Amalfi, less than 4 miles (6.4 kilometers) away. Other tour options include Vespa tours and multi-day tours that explore the Amalfi Coast.

How to Get There

About a 1.5-hour drive from Naples, Ravello stands at the southern end of the Amalfi Coast, just above the town of Amalfi. To get there by public transport, take a regional train to Salerno, then a bus to Amalfi, and another up the Valle del Dragone to Ravello. The duomo is a 10-minute walk west of Ravello’s main bus stop. Driving is the best way to get around the Amalfi Coast, despite the fact that cars are not allowed in most town centers.

When to Get There

The church is open daily from 7am to noon and 5:30pm to 7pm, although opening and closing times are less consistent during the winter. Like most towns along the Amalfi Coast, Ravello is packed with pedestrians during the summer, and their first stop is usually the square and Duomo. Arriving in the morning leaves enough time to take on a Ravello walking itinerary and visit nearby villas and gardens.

Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone

The former home of popes, kings, and composer Richard Wagner, Villa Rufolo overlooks Piazza Duomo and sometimes hosts evening concerts in the garden. Villa Cimbrone, located on Via Santa Chiara a short walk south of the piazza, is a private hotel, but its famous gardens and terrace are open to the public—and have some of the best views in all of the Amalfi Coast.
