Hike Along the Path of the Gods and Visit to Positano


Majestic Path of the Gods and A Coastal Gem

Embarking on a hike along the Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei) followed by a visit to Positano with Your Own Italy offers an exhilarating blend of natural beauty and coastal charm. This unique experience combines the breathtaking vistas of the Amalfi Coast from one of its most famous hiking trails with the enchanting allure of Positano, a cliffside village known for its pebble beaches, steep, narrow streets, and vibrant cultural scene.

The Hike: Unparalleled Views and Natural Beauty
The Path of the Gods, named for its heavenly views, stretches high above the Amalfi Coast, offering hikers panoramic scenes of the Mediterranean Sea, rugged coastline, and the Lattari Mountains. Starting from Bomerano, a fraction of Agerola, and ending in Nocelle, a part of Positano, this moderate hike (approximately 3 hours) is accessible to most fitness levels. Along the way, encounter ancient vineyards, terraced lemon groves, and remote chapels, each turn and crest revealing vistas more stunning than the last.

Positano by Night
