We rushed up the street to get there before it closed. It was a little farther than we thought. It is not well signed so just go up the road until you see it. We got there just as the employee was about to close. He saw our faces and so kindly let us in and even gave us a... More

The visit to this small museum is guided and the story they will tell you will entertain for sure because that was one of the first paper mills in Europe. They also have a small shop with a good range of souvenir papers and seals. That is a must see in Amalfi.

Very intersting albiet a bit short excursion (15-20min) to one of the first paper mills in Europe at the price of just 4 euros. There's also a shop inside where you can buy some neat stuff like seals with different letters (20-30 euros for a set including a seal and a small bottle of wax) or cotton paper. While you... More

A quaint museum that will introduce you to the magic of fine paper making and its significance to Amalfi, historically and in the present. A short tour is available and the museum's small shop offers some very useful and beautiful souvenirs.

This was a lovely, informative little tour of an Amalfi paper mill. It was inexpensive, interesting, and they let us make some paper to take home. The shop upstairs was filled with irresistible little souvenirs.

Well worth the walk away from the main square up to the quieter part of Amalfi. The guided tour was in English and he kept the interest of ourselves and a family with 2 young children.

I'd say that this is a must in Amalfi. This small but really well organized museum is housed in an old paper mill, and educates you on various techniques of paper-making. The cost of the museum visit (4 euros) includes a guided tour in English or Italian, which takes about 20 minutes. I very much enjoyed it, and would definitely... More

Wasn't sure if I would like this museum, but it was really very interesting. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to give the tour in several languages simultaneously. They even let the kids get their hands wet and dunk cloth in a vat that will eventually get made into paper. The shopkeeper in the giftshop was very friendly.... More
