It's an uphill walk along the main shopping street, but well worth the effort. Small museum and gift shop. Take the tour and you'll see interesting old machines from the paper making industry and get to see them in motion.

Lovely 10 to 15 minute stroll uphill from the Cathedral and you're in a totally tranquil little part of Amalfi and about to find out about its centuries old paper industry which sadly came to an end in 1969. The mill owner bequeathed the site...More
