Ravello is the starting point for numerous walks - some of which follow ancient paths through the surrounding Lattari mountains. If you've got the legs for it you can walk down to Minori, or, heading the other way, to Amalfi, via the ancient village of Scala. Once a flourishing religious centre with more than a hundred churches, Scala is now a sleepy place where the wind whistles through empty streets and gnarled locals go patiently about their daily chores. In the central square, the Romanesque Duomo (Piazza Municipio; S 8am-noon &5-7pm daily) retains some of its 12th-century solemnity. Ask at the Ravello tourist office for further walking information.
