Italy is filled with abandoned towns and villages. It is estimated that there are over 2,000 of them in the country, gradually crumbling and being swallowed by brambles and ivy. Destroyed by landslides and earthquakes, emptied by economic hardships and depopulation—many of these ghost towns boast glorious histories and stunning locations. While most are too dangerous to access, others can be explored safely and attract many curious visitors.
