The dying city - Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy

Ralph Lauren coat (similar), Vince chambray shirt (similar), Rag & Bone jeggings, Zara boots (similar)

One of my favorite places in Italy is Civita di Bagnoregio, or the "dying city." It was built 2500 years ago by the Etruscans on clay/basalt, which has intensively eroded over time. Only a small village with a population of 14 remains, surrounded by hills and valleys as far as your eyes can see. It's one of those wonders where you can observe nature and the manmade coexist so beautifully. I'll post more photos of the inside of the city soon.
