We love HOW TO visits, and this is one to do . . . it is a bit of a walk up from the main town, into the quieter part of Amalfi. I am told if you walk another 800 meters you will be in lemon groves, and the old town cemetery, but I digress. You arrive at the museum,... More

I was the last tour of the day so it was a bit rushed. Quite a good tour through history complete with being able to 'have a go' at some of the machines. Not fantastic but certainly I was glad I made the effort to visit. Something different and a good learning experience.

Great and interesting side trip. We found this by accident and are so glad we did. It was so interesting seeing the old machines in action and learning about the history of Amalfi through its paper industry.

We visited Amalfi which is itself a quaint little destination but this little museum was an unexpected bonus. During the tour you get to see and experience the way paper was made over the centuries at this water powered small factory. The guide skilfully managed a mixed group of English and German visitors in both languages. His demonstration of the... More

Okay, so it is hard to get too excited about making paper. Enthusiastic tour guide(4 aeuro pp) showing how paper was made originally for old clothes. Only took about 20 minutes

I learned something about the ancient paper making techniques. The tour was about 45 minutes so it wasn't a big investment of time. If you're in the area it might be worth a stop but I wouldn't go out of my way.

The museo is located only about 5 minutes away from the center of where the majority of tourist attractions are. It is truly a hidden jem and a critical part of your journey at Amalfi. The tour only was 4 euros and included a demonstration and guided tour of how Amalfi paper is made. The tour guide and workers were... More
