About this spot
This is a spot half the way from Bomerano to Positano in the Gods’ Pathway (in Italian “Sentiero degli Dei”) and. As Positano is getting closer the foreground rocks get more and more interesting.
The trail is so suggestive that many artists and writers, like Italo Calvino and David Herbert Lawrence wrote about it, putting in word the amazement you yourself will surely feel coming here.
It is in fact considered one of the most enjoyable pathways you may be able to experience in the whole Europe.
The trail runs along Monti Lattari, and for several centuries this has been the only way connecting all the medieval villages of the Amalfi Coast
The main section of the hike is about 6.5 kilomtres between the small villages of Bomerano (in Agerola) and Nocelle (just above Positano). You will enjoy beautiful views of the sea and coastal towns below along the way.
The hike is of moderate difficulty, since both these villages are above the sea, so there isn’t a huge change of elevation between them.
The hike becomes more difficult if you start or finish at the coastal towns of Praiano (below Bomerano) or Positano (below Nocelle). These towns are connected to the trail by steep staircases of over 1500 steps. But getting to (or from) these villages by bus, you can avoid the steepest parts of the trail.
