  • As a designer I am impressed to be in the place where they founded the first factory of the European Charter. From this point of view I cannot be very objective, because I loved the explanation and I understood many things! It is a museum that offers tours in English, French and Spanish. They were very kind and for very low cost learning a little more about the importance of the role and its importance!

  • Fun museum showing the various ways paper used to be made right in Amalfi. Great for the engineering minded. Good activity past all of the shopping in Amalfi.
  • This place is awesome. Though away from the touristy center of town, it is well worth the hike up hill to learn how rag paper was made a thousand years ago
  • 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.
  • So fun to learn how paper is made!
  • Courtesy and good explanation of the technique for the realization in ancient times of Amalfi paper
