Set among chestnut forests more than 1,000 feet above the sea, Scala is a serene haven of historical and natural splendour, and is one of the oldest towns on the Amalfi Coast. Situated just a few minutes’ drive from nearby Ravello, Scala manages to maintain an entirely rustic appeal that suits visitors looking for a more genteel stay within reach of larger resorts. Surrounded by majestic limestone peaks and crumbling castle walls, this hillside town affords splendid views over the surrounding hillside to the sea. Built around a picturesque central piazza, the town is a ramble of quaint lanes and streets that really comes alive at the end of October when, for two weekends, the annual chestnut festival takes place and villagers challenge each other to games such as tug of war and donkey riding.

Day to day, the town offers up a handful of peaceful restaurants, serving dishes ranging from authentic hand-made pizzas to deliciously rich desserts flavoured with natural ingredients and washed down with limoncello. Attractions are found mostly in neighbouring towns like Ravello, but there are a few churches and plenty of breathtaking vantage points for you to enjoy within Scala. Located close enough to larger towns that they can be reached with ease but not so close as to disturb the tranquil ambience, Scala is great for visitors wanting a taste of southern Italy in peace.
