Travel: 5 weird and wonderful places to visit in Italy in 2019


Valle dei Mulini (Valley of the Mills), Sorrento, Italy

The Valley of Mills is a group of ruins at the bottom of a crevasse. The flour mills, some built in around the 13th century, used a stream at the bottom of the crevasse for their work. Eventually, the work was mostly moved to nearby pasta mills, meaning the building became obsolete and are now crumbling since they closed in the 1940s. They are now overgrown by the greenery in the crevasse and resemble the post-apocalyptic films and series we see nowadays.
