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.

Il Vallone dei Mulini Reviews
It is currently totally hidden by tarpaulins due to building work. Nothing to see! Not worth the walk and would be unsafe to access more »
No information at the site to explain what the building is/was so had to look it up online. Unfortunately, it's almost completely covered with scaffolding whilst construction work takes place. more »
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!
