Besides Egypt where can you find papyrus? Siracusa. The little museum is open 9am-2pm (most guidebooks say 1pm) and its 2 euro not free but worth it. Next door to the much more extensive and fabulous archaeological museum it has an interesting video and good well displayed items that belonged to its founder. You can find a couple of nice artists shops on Ortygia selling hand painted papyrus. As always no bookshop (same w other museums).
