Pentedattilo - Ghost Town

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Check out this amazing drone video of a well known "ghost town" in Southern Italy, compliments of Luca T.  It's called Pentedattilo, and it's located near the "toe" of Italy in the region of Calabria.  The town was founded by Greek colonists in the 7th century BC.  It was a thriving commercial center for centuries, falling into decline when the seat of the Roman Empire moved to Constantinople.  Conquered by the Vikings and later the Saracens, the town never recovered from a devastating earthquake in 1783.
