    The charming, medieval village of Scala is only 2 kms from Ravello. Its name means “ladder” or “flight of steps” in Italian, characteristic of this hill-top village which runs along the side of the Dragon Valley right above Amalfi and adjacent to Ravello. It is the oldest town on the Amalfi Coast and is the ideal location for people who enjoy hiking. Paths lead to seldom visited hamlets, small chapels and medieval ruins with stunning views over the coast and the valleys below.
    Set in the middle of the Monti Lattari chain and dominated by the great mass of its medieval Cathedral, the commune of Scala is divided into six small hamlets or “borghi”: Scala center, San Pietro, Santa Caterina, Campidoglio, Pontone and Minuta , each rich in history, hidden paths and enchanting views. This is a timeless gem and a favourite location for visitors seeking a truly authentic medieval atmosphere , traditional restaurants , fresh products and fresh mountain air, “far from the madding crowds” of other local tourist resorts.
