  • Visited yesterday. A pleasant surprise in the most original of Amalfi, far from the chaos and little shops. Staff very friendly, helpful and personable that competently led us to the discovery of the oldest paper mill in Europe. Bella a chance to do from a sheet of paper.

  • 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.  more »
  • A visit to small and large to learn the secrets of making the paper in a mill paper several times Centennial not to be missed.

  • An interesting venue to spend 30 to 60 minutes in and learn something new at the same time. Only 4 EUR/adult for entry and the tour, can't really argue with that. I was most impressed that a lot of the paper making equipment was still largely functional after all this time and a number of floods.
  • Cute little museum on the history of paper making in Amalfi. Shows the machines and demonstrations of how to make paper. Gift shop has nice paper gifts. Museum is not handicap accessible
  • Cute little museum but not that interesting.
  • 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

Where to stay in Amalfi

Amalfi abounds in luxurious villas and hotels offering rooms with panoramic views of the coastline. Centrally located hotels provide a convenient base for day trips to the surrounding area, but if you wish to explore the famous coastline on a limited budget, edge-of-town B&Bs offer a good alternative the more expensive town center. Amalfi has a good public transport network, so you won't need a private car to get around. Unlike fashionable resorts, small B&Bs also offer free access to good beaches.
