Path of the God: a 5 miles long dream

A favorite destination for hiking and walking enthusiasts, the Path of the Gods (or “Sentiero degli Dei” where god in Italian is “Dio”) extends from Bomerano to Nocelle. Connecting the two hamlets of Agerola and Positano.

The Path of the Gods is about 5 miles long and is a spectacular stretch of the mountain overlooking the sea, where you can admire the island of Li Galli, Punta Campanella and Capri on the horizon, with his spectacular Faraglioni, respectively. The walk of the God hike time is different from person to person, but the average time is 3 hours. The path, today mainly enjoyed by tourists and hikers, is the ancient road that once connected the two hamlets of Bomerano and Nocelle. In summer, it is still possible to meet, during the walk, some farmers with mules loaded with country products. Among the paths on the Amalfi Coast, this is certainly the most evocative.

Crossing terraces, crops and ruins of ancient stone houses, you will walk between paths overlooking the sea and the thick groves of the Mediterranean scrub. How can you miss the triumph of myrtles, wild fennel plants and the scents of maple and chestnut which smell in the landscape? Path of the Gods hike is a divine experience. If you are looking for a corner of paradise, close to nature, here is your best route.
