For four euros per person you can take a 20-30 minute tour of this 13th century paper mill with an English-speaking guide. You see the machinery, the tools, and the processes used throughout the centuries. The company still makes paper today but not at this site and, according to our guide, their primary customer is the Vatican. The museum and the tour are fascinating. A member of the group gets to make a sheet of paper by dipping a frame into the cotton water. We learned so much in a very short period of time. From the center of town walk up the hill about 15 to 20 minutes by following the signs to the paper mill. Just when you feel like you won't find it, there it is on the left. This was a real highlight of our visit.
