Holidays in Scala don't offer much for beach lovers. But if you're into walking, countryside and spectacular views, this traditional Campanian village, clinging to the hillside next to the vertical vineyards of Dragon Valley, just could be the place for you. Its neighbour is Ravello, the oldest human settlement on this coastline, and little has changed around here for centuries. So you won't have to worry much about the stresses and strains of modern living.
Those planning holidays in Scala shouldn't expect resort-style hotels or sizzling nightlife. This is about discovering the real rural Italy, a place where time passes slowly and simple pleasures suffice. That being said, you'll be more than comfortable at the Zintonio Hotel, spectacularly set on the hillside with amazing vistas over the Bay of Naples from the swimming pool and sun terrace. Can you expect lots of bargain holidays to Scala? Maybe not. But the view alone its weight in gold!
Set inland and away from the main tourist areas, Scala is probably not somewhere you would escape to for last minute holidays or late deals and expect to have everything on tap. A bit of planning is probably more the thing, so you can organise walks and excursions to explore the local countryside, visit some medieval ruins and maybe take a boat trip or two. Alternatively, simply hop on a bus to Ravello or Amalfi, where you'll find plenty of bars and restaurants.
