Walking on the Amalfi Coast – Path of the Gods

Written by Eva Stelzer. Posted in Blog, Italy

Whether you’re an experienced hiker or just want to appreciate an amazing view, the Path of the Gods on the Amalfi Coast is a must-see. From the grandeur of the mountains to the tranquility of the clear blue water, this series of pathways is the ideal way to move between the beautiful seaside and mountain villages of this idyllic location.

Many local farmers and villagers use these paths every day, a fact that will be even more impressive once you’ve seen the view for yourself. With thousand-foot cliffs at your feet (and no railing) being up there is an experience you’ll never forget. The natural beauty of the location gives a feeling of living in another time.

Running between Positano and Agerola, the Path of the Gods is less of a straight shot between towns and more of a series of trails exploring the area, so the exact route you want to take is up to you. One popular departure point is the small village of Bomerano, But regardless of where you choose to kick off your adventure you will see spectacular gorges, stunning views of the sea and get the chance to explore several of the beautiful villages in the area. In fact, after a long day of walking, doesn’t a cool drink at a seaside café sound perfect?

The length of a walk along the Path of the Gods is variable, depending on how much of it you choose to walk. It can be anywhere from a short 3-hour walk to a full-day excursion, so unless you have a lot of free time your best bet is to plan a route ahead of time. But however much of it you choose to see, make sure that you add this hike to your itinerary. You won’t regret it.
