This 20-30 minute tour provides a glimpse into the evolution of Amalfi's paper production trade from the 13th century until modern day. Kids will enjoy the hands on portion of the tour, and the mechanically-minded will admire the demonstration of the water-powered equipment. There are...More

Great tour, worth a short walk up from commercial area. It has some potential. The owner should market this medieval paper museum better, since fewer people pass by the area.

This tour doesn't cost much and our 11 and 13 year olds enjoyed it. You get to see the full operation of how paper was made 100's of years ago. They even let you or your kids make paper. The tour lasts about 20-30 minutes....More

A wonderful find, tucked up the hill away from the town a little way. Worth the walk (well sign-posted from town), and the small charge to have the tour. Fascinating ancient machinery, still working, and you can make your own sheet of beautiful paper. There...More

This tour costs 4 euro and takes about 30 minutes. It can be delivered in many different languages! Fascinating to see all the details machines and the process of making paper! I think it's worth a visit!

This place was really awesome. Amalfi was historically known for premium paper making and here you can see how it was made. If you're lucky (and volunteer) you can even make some yourself.
