Not sure how old the ruins are but they are old, you can't get down to them but every one takes a photo it's just a very deep cavern, it's free so what's not too like?

The surprise of this site caught me off guard the first time I saw it in 2008 and I have been back twice more to photograph it . I love Sorrento and the old mill adds to the charm . I can stare at it for a long time , Sorrento is tiny and there is so much to enjoy... More

You cannot really see much , it looks like a ruined victorian mill in the English Peak district . Its pretty much innaccessible . We stared at it from the road above ,took a few pics and thats all you can do . Its fair enough but hardly an attraction

So pretty when lit up at night, we wouldn't have found it if we hadn't gone on little train, it was so lush and green and the birds obviously loved it as that's all you could here when looking over railings, we went back in daylight but it's much better at night

Close to Piazza Tasso and worth looking for. We only viewed this during the day but it is so unusual to find in a busy town. Worth taking 5 minutes just to take it in.

Definitely worth a look as it's easy to get from Piazza Tasso and is stunning to look at and photograph (the birdsong sounds wonderful too). They used to be flourmills and sawmills - makes you wonder what stories they have to tell :)

This is a must see if you're in Sorrento, simply because it takes seconds to walk there from the main square. We walked over there in the evening, and were shocked when we saw a stone structure in the dark depths (the lights were malfunctioning, which was a plus in my opinion). The darkness made it impossible to judge the... More

This is located directly across from the parking garage and is very unassuming. I did not see them light it up at night like other reviewers said but we saw it during the day. Not much to do just look down into the valley and read the informational sign about it but kind of cool that it preserved.

We went to the designated place to pick up the small buses to go yo the lower level of Sorrento when we saw this over the railing. Almost reminds me of a lost civilization where the plants had taken over. Also an interesting viaduct system for carrying water us their. Expect to take some quick pictures and move on after... More

This is a really beautiful spot 30 seconds from Piazza Tasso. We got some beautiful pics at sunset. Well worth the tiny stroll to take in the view.
