While it is not one of the big travel destination names on the Amalfi Coast – such as Amalfi, Ravello and Positano – the peace and quiet of Scala is what makes the towns so charming. Along with its beautiful setting in the mountains above Amalfi and convenient location just across a pretty valley from Ravello., the town of Scala has much to offer visitors, especially those interested in exploring, hiking and relaxing on the Amalfi Coast. Scala is known as the oldest village on the Amalfi Coast, it has a long and fascinating history tied very closely with the medieval Republic of Amalfi. Hiking up in the mountains surrounding the town, one can still spot some of the medieval walls that once protected Scala and Amalfi, further down the valley on the sea. One of the best ways to explore Scala is to follow the main road that leads through Scala Centre by the Duomo of San Lorenzo and connects almost all of the hamlets of Scala. It is a nice drive, or an enjoyable walk, offering fine views overlooking Ravello across the valley and the Amalfi coastline.
Most people visit Ravello for the incredible views, but one of the local secrets is that the views from Scala are even better. From near the top of Scala in the hamlet of Campidoglio, the panoramic view includes all of Ravello, with the green gardens of Villa Cimbrone at the tip of the promontory, the rugged mountains and coastline and the Bay of Salerno. Stop at one of the benches along the road, sit back and enjoy one of the Amalfi Coast’s quietest and most stunning views.
The little hamlet of Minuta can be spotted from across the valley in Ravello by the little church dedicated to Santissima Annunziata, this beautiful 11th-century church is thought to be one of the oldest churches in Scala . If you are fond of hiking, from this property there are stepped pathways all the way down to Atrani or Amalfi, with amazing views.
