Just a short walk away from the busy city center, Il Vallone dei Mulini is a valley housing an old industrial mill, which is now overgrown with grass and ferns. You can look over the railing at these ruins day or night, as the attraction is lit up in the evening. You can’t actually walk near the site, but it is worthwhile to stop and look down on it.

  • Was closed so could only view from the bridge but worth going to as it’s right in the city centre and is quite unique sitting between the cliffs. Viewing at night can give an eerie feel.

  • Lovely little place to see, too bad you can only look at it from the bridge. It is still interesting nonetheless and I would love to tour it if/when possible and know about its history.

  • The Vallone dei Mulini is a very interesting place for a quick visit. It can be seen from the road and pathways above, where there is also a small information board and a bench. Be aware that it is not possible to get up close to the old mill building, so only a short visit is needed. It is also only a short walk from the main square in Sorrento, so it's worth adding to your to-see list if you are in the area.
  • Saw this on Atlas Obscura and was eager to get some photos of the mills but they're covered in scaffolding so if you're looking for a photography opportunity this isn't it. Bit of a shame but cool none-the-less!
