Following the path you will reach the waterfalls of Canneto torrent. Along the trail, there are the ancient ironworks, which gives the valley its name and there are also the mills that produced the famous handmade paper of Amalfi. Finally at Paper Mill Museum in Amalfi, you’ll discover how to make hand-made paper.

The historical Regatta is the celebratory event of the four Maritime Republics, which take place every year in June in a different republic: Amalfi, Pisa, Genova and Venezia. During this historical and sportive reenactment, the Republic’s crews compete on their galleys. The historic parade complete the event.
