Carta means paper in Italian, and we arrived thinking “maps” - language mix-ups are becoming common for us these days! So, only slightly disappointed, this lover of cartography spent a fascinating hour being guided around this old paper-mill by the knowledgable Magdalene. Amalfi has a...More

This is a little gem of a museum located at the top of the Main Street. It is well worth the effort of the cobbled hill. We paid €4 for a guided tour which was so informative and set at a relaxed pace and multi...More

Enjoyed the informative 25-min. tour by an excellent English-speaking female guide. The impressive industrial technology and processes that harness natural resources and transform rags into paper were explained clearly. The gift shop has paper, prints, and lots of calligraphy materials. Well worth a 10-minute stroll...More

It's a bit of a walk from the seafront to get to this museum but it's worth it. This was not what we were expecting: a collection of various types of papers. It is in fact a small museum dedicated to showing how paper was...More

Who knew that paper was made from old rags. Just one of the interesting facts on this tour. Well worth the 4e entry fee. Leni, our tour guide, easily switched from English to Italian to German to accommodate all the customers.

Well worth the short walk up from the piazza is the 12th century paper mill. Really interesting tour with some hands in opportunity. Cute little gift shop if you need some authentic Amalfi paper.
