The dreamy coastal village of Scario is the jewel at the southern-most end of the Cilento.
The ancient Greeks were already drawn to Scario by its unique site and the mild climate (Greek: Skariòs).
The authentic fishing village touches the maritime wildlife park Infreschi – which reaches up to Marina di Camerota – on the one side.
Boats take you to the many picturesque bays of the maritime wildlife park within a few minutes. You get more information about boat-trips at the "Bar Toni".
On the other side, Scario lies on the edge of the Gulf of Policastro.
You will enjoy the amazing panoramic view into the wide bay of the Gulf and towards the mountains of Basilicata and Calabria, which seem to rise directly from the sea.
On days of clear visibility you are even able to see the famous statue of Christ in Maratea.
The beautiful church with its separate bell tower – a campanile – is to be found on the main piazza of Scario. From there you can promenade under palm trees above the small, contemplative port and take part in the typical Italian village life in cafés, bars and restaurants.
During the Italian holiday months of July and August, the life in Scario takes on slightly mundane features. Wealthy Romans and Neapolitans move into their villas on the hills above the village and numerous holiday guests line the otherwise sleepy port promenade.
