Discovering that Amalfi is the origin of paper in all of Europe and still to this day, where the worlds most valuable paper is made, was a real surprise. It is the only supplier of paper to The Vatican, such is its importance and quality. The museum and tour is a relatively small one, so takes up no ,ore than... More

My friends and I fell upon this place and were pleased we did! Taking this tour and learning the history of paper production makes you appreciate the hard work involved in paper production from many years past. The guide speaks good English and provides an interesting historical tour, explanation of the equipment, and a hands on opportunity to participate in... More

We found it very interesting this museum that can be visited thanks to a pleasant walk to the small town of Amalfi, where it was nice to learn about the ancient techniques with which the paper was obtained. In the museum you can also see some old machinery still in operation.

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.
