    Beautiful hike - must do when in the area!
    It's worth the ferry and bus ride to the start, the path is beautiful and peaceful and surprisingly not that crowded in the summer. We finished our hike in Positano and celebrated with some delicious fresh juices. Worth checking out if you make the trip to the Amalfi coast!

    Gorgeous hike!
    Gorgeous hiking path along the Amalfi Coast. A nice way to see Positano and a view of the sea from afar. If you’re in the Amalfi Coast for a couple of days, definitely put this on your to-do list!

    Enjoy the views but be careful not to trip.
    As others stated wonderful views. We walked down but did not do the stairs into Positano. I think my knees will thank me for that. If you are over 65 and not an experienced hiker I suggest a guide. There are some sections where you are climbing up and down the rocks rather than hiking.

    Excellent hike
    We didn’t tackle the entire path — actually only a short portion, but it was well worth it. The views were spectacular! It is steep and those like myself with vertigo issue will find it quite challenging. Also, watch out for mule poop — lots of it! But even if you can only manage a few miles, it’s worth the trip.

    Views forever, a highlight of my trip to the Amalfi Coast
    This was part of a self guided walking tour with the Natural Adventure Company and it had amazing views of the Amalfi Coast. This hike is not for novices!! Hiking boots and poles are highly recommended and make sure you bring plenty of water and wear a hat as a lot of the walk is in direct sun. There was one point where you needed to scramble over a couple of large rocks (I am only 163 cm tall). I loved it and there were many hikers on the path both self guided like myself and a few small groups with guides. We hiked from Bomerano to Nocelles which with the inclines is probably much easier than from Nocelles to Bomerano. I am a fit 65 year old who walks 10-15 kms a day and I found it challenging in several places.

    Windows on the Mediterranean
    I've hiked this trail twice and enjoyed it immensely both times. Starting from Agerola to Positano and then from Positano to Praiano, the experience was truly spectacular. This hike is like gazing through windows onto the Mediterranean, offering immersive natural scenery. The path is well-maintained and clean. It does require a good level of fitness, but the breathtaking views make it well worth the effort

    Fantastic views during a two hour walk - A guide is not necessary.
    Pick a day when the weather forecast is favorable. We went in April when there were clear skies and 17 degrees C. Perfect! We took the SITA bus 5080 from Naples (Varco Immacolatella), which departs at 8.05 and arrives in Bomerano, close to the trail head at around 9.50. From there you walk through the village to get to the beginning of the trail and then admire the views for the next two hours. The hike is easy and slightly downhill. There are a few places with slightly steeper inclines and declines, although nothing frightening. Do bring water and snacks, particularly if the temperatures are somewhat high, as there are no places to get anything to drink (or eat) between Bomerano and your goal at Nocelle. Once in Nocelle, there are a few places to stop for a drink or something to eat. In order to get down to the shore, you can either take the stairs down to Positano (about one hour), or wait for the bus that takes you down to Positano every hour (at ten minutes til the hour, every hour) in twenty minutes. Buses leave Positano for Sorrento about hourly, and from Sorrento you can take the train back to Naples. This is a great full day excursion for the people who enjoy the outdoors. A guide is not necessary.

    Well worth it!
    What a hike! I reviewed this trail heavily and some say it was beginner and some say it was moderately difficult. I think it was somewhere in between. We started from Nocelle and ended in Bomerano [a little over 4 miles one way] once you reach the endpoint its another 10 or so minutes to get into the small town of Bomerano. From there you can either take a 1 hour taxi back to Positano, Amalfi, etc. . [Gonna run you about 130 euro...] or, like us, you can grind out another 4+ miles and see a different perspective than the first starting point. There are many steps throughout the trail. There were a few tours we passed but we didn't feel it was crowded and it was overall a serene and beautiful trail. The weather was stunning going to Bomerano but cloudy and a bit chilly going back. We were happy overall with how the trip went but definitely sore the next day!

    Wear Sturdy Shoes, NO Sandals
    This hike is not for beginners or people who are not use to exercise. Yes, it does have some flat dirt parts but it’s the steep rocky spots with stairs that you will remember most. The ride on the bus to the hike (from Sorrento) takes an hour. They have a bathroom stop and place to get water and food when they drop you off. They break you out in groups of 12 to 14 and give you a guide. The hike with this tour is out and back over the same trail. More uphill on the way back. Your legs will get a great workout and your eyes will get an amazing view of the world renowned Amalfi Coast😎. Make sure to bring water and a walking stick👍 The only negative I have is our tour guide did not speak good English.

The only worrd that can come to my mind after a day at tue PATH of Gods: Breath taking. A trakking PATH you can not miss.
If you plan to go all the way down from Agerola to Positano, make sure that you know how to come back (if you don't want to walk back). You can take buses or a cab but if it's a crowded day, you can have problems and being in a messy line forever.

My daughter and I hiked The Path of the Gods a week ago, and it was an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend you get a local guide to accompany you, ours knew the history of the area and the names, uses of all the plants and herbs. Around every bend you will find a breathtaking view of the Tyrrhenian Sea, part of the Mediterranean. I would call this hike moderately difficult. Be sure to wear sturdy hiking shoes. This is a must.

Highly recommend doing this hike - it is certainly doable for anyone of normal fitness and the views were unlike anything I have ever seen. You can really see as far as the end of the sea! The path can get thin (and the cliff drop is extremely high) so do make sure you're only going when it's clear skies. Take water as there won't be stops until the end.

We hiked up from Fuoro / Praiano to the start of the path, then to Nocelle, and then took the steps down. The hardest parts by far were the paths up from Praiano ( it is extremely steep up so would recommend starting from the actual path in Bomerano for a much easier walk. There are 1700 steps from Nocelle down to the bottom of the road near Positano- while it wasn't hard going down, I wouldn't recommend doing it if you're planning to do hikes the next day as our calves had delayed onset pain for several days, which made walking down stairs quite painful! Something to bear in mind.

Great and beautiful hike. Fill up water and supplies at the town of Bomerano if you’re going downhill and stop for lunch at Nocelle where the views are stunning. Relatively easy for seasoned hikers but bring enough water and a hat as the sun can increase the difficulty. Hiking boots recommended in case it rains and gets slippery. There are many tourists hiking this trail and 118 available to call, easy to call for help if needed. The beautiful view can be deceiving, it’s important to note there are no railings in most parts. If you have young toddlers a hiking carrier is a must. There are areas that requires both hands to climb and it is extremely dangerous to have a young kid hike this trail. A 21 yo woman fell off the train into a cliff drop the day we hiked and unfortunately lost her life and another tourist fell off by the low walls towards Positano a month ago and didn’t make it. When we researched the path very few people mentioned the potential danger so wanted to write this post as a reminder.

Wow, what an amazing hike!! You get the most incredible views in the Amalfi Coast while doing this hike. We started in Bomerano and worked our way back to Positano, we even did the over 1,500 stairs from Nocelle. In all it took us about 3 hours. We started the hike early in the morning around 7:00 and did not see many people. It was also awesome to see the sun rise over the mountains. You might be sore the next day but you will be glad you did this hike.

We truly enjoyed the Sentiero degli Dei walk on the Costiera Amalfitana. Staying in Positano we took the public bus to Praiano, exited at Hotel Smeraldo and started the walk by taking 1200 or so steps up. After an hour or so we arrived on top walked for an 1-1.5 hours to Nocelle with breathtaking views of the mediterranean and Positano. Arriving in Nocelle we had a granita on the church square (better and cheaper than the booth right at the entrance of Nocelle). From Nocelle‘s church square we then took again 1.000 steps, but now fortunately down again. In the end we followed the main road for 1 km to be back in Positano after 3.5h.
A great activity, tiring esp in the southern heat, but definitely an experience. Take enough water !

TIPS. I’ve done it twice. Choose direction Bomerano to Nocelle, this way the scenery is ahead, instead of behind you, and at the end you climb down (not up!) 1700+ steps to get back to the main road near Positano. It takes about 25 minutes to get from Amalfi to Bomerano by bus (then another 10-15 min walk to the trail). Do it in the morning, so you walk mostly in the shade, protected by the mountain. The actual trail can be completed in roughly 2 hours, but I would plan for at least 3-4 hours (bus, finding the trail, water breaks, taking pictures, 20-30 min walking down the steps at the end, etc).

Lovely hike and beautiful scenery. The hike is not difficult at all if you’re in decent shape, there are some areas in which you climb some steps, but nothing too crazy.
It took us around 2 hours and a half with water stops to complete it from Bomerano to Nocelle. You can get a bus from Amalfi to Bomerano (which includes splendid views as well) and then from Nocelle there is another bus that brings you to Positano.
Bring lots of water, good shoes and a hat as it’s pretty sunny in some parts.

This is a very scenic cliff-side trek with sweeping views of the coast. Unfortunately, the weather played spoilsport on the day, so it was cloudy and misty, and rained as well - which impacted clarity of the views, but made it all quite dramatic.

We took the bus from Amalfi to Bomerano (check bus schedules, we'd have liked to start earlier but service is limited on Sundays and holidays) and followed the signs to the trailhead. The path itself is not very well signposted, but its hard to stray off course. It's not very hard or dangerous as such, but there are parts that are steep with minor scrambling and sections with loose rock so need to be sure footed and careful. Take enough water and snacks to fuel up en route.

We took about 2 hours from Bomerano to Nocelle, keeping a brisk pace. From Nocelle,it is possible to walk but we were tired and took the bus to Positano. After exploring gorgeous Positano, we took a late evening bus back to our B&B in Amalfi.

A view well worth the trip. It's one of the best views on the Amalfi coast and quite easy accessible. It can be quite crowded, so good to visit it a bit earlier in the morning or during lunch time.
