A great visit. Note that it might be a great escape from the midday heat;) We took a tour were we could actually try to make a piece of paper (the process is long, so you can't get your own paper) and the guide was very nice! I recommend! The history and the fact that the machines are still working (what the guide will show during a tour) is fascinating.
Everyday I try to learn something new, but today's tour of the museum is in the top 10 of all time for me. Found this place wondering the streets of Almafi Coast and will forever be grateful for this trip! I thought I knew the origin of paper..... I did not BUT I do now! Awesome guide who answered every question with a smile.... and there were many! 😃 Hands down the best value of anything we did this week I will remember today the rest if my life. History is so amazing 👏🏾
