  • Just go straight down the main street, on the left side. The rain came down and the friend likes stationery, I went. Amalfi paper, ink and pen, etc are sold as was Uhura a friend to those who really like fun I think.

  • 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
  • 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!
