Heavenly trekking: the Path of Gods

3rd September 2018

Amalfi Coast is the ideal location to relax and sunbathe, get lost through the characteristic streets of the villages while shopping, taste the authentic sea flavor in the most famous fish restaurants. Positano is a dream in summer, of course, but it is a great choice also in spring or in the coolest September days, when you can enjoy a pleasant walk in the heart of nature.

Our land is made for trekking, with its paths designed by the embrace of sea and sun, our Mediterranean vegetation all around. If you love walking or you are a real trekking fan, take your time to reach a necessary step: the Sentiero degli Dei (Path of Gods).

 

Idyllic scenery

 

The Path of Gods, with the incredible union of sea and heaven, brings back to distant times, until the splendors of ancient Greece. The name of the path, in fact, recalls its unicity to be the favorite shelter of gods and mermaids, attracted by the unforgettable view on the most impressive points of the Amalfi Coast.

You can walk along the itinerary of 8 km in two directions, downwards or upwards, but we strongly suggest the first one, especially for beginners. We assure same idyllic sceneries at any step.  The path joints Agerola, hamlet of Bomerano, and Nocelle, the historic part of Positano, and it takes you about two hours. At the end of your stroll, you will reach a magic sea stretch:  according to local legends, mermaids used to live there and seduced sailors, distracting their attention from the right course.​

The Amalfi Coast you don’t imagine

 

Choose comfortable and breathable cloth, wear a pair of athletic shoes and take a bottle of water with you, especially if the sun is shining. Now you are ready for your dream excursion on a well-marked path starting from Agerola. To rest or just to fully appreciate the limitless wonder in front of you, reach the benches along the way: you will keep unforgettable moments in your heart.  A kaleidoscope of colors wherever you direct your glance: the bluest sea you can imagine, the golden sunshine rays, the strong green of the Mediterranean scrub on the grey rocks of the coast. A real feast for eyes and a balm for soul:  now you realize the reason why gods loved this place.   Another unmissable detail is the presence of bushes of myrtle, where Venus used to hide to escape the satyrs of the woods. One of the most suggestive panoramic points is Praiano bay: on this beach of the Amalfi Coast, in fact, the sun shines more hours than in other places during the day. It seems the sun god chooses this stretch as his oasis. When your heart will burst with wonder, you will be at the end of your trekking excursion: you will be at Nocelle. From there you can come back to our 5-star hotel in Positano peaceful in soul, not even feeling tired.

Discover a new face of The Amalfi Coast is really a journey of Beauty.
