from Agerola to Positano between the sky and the sea


The most famous walk of the Amalfi peninsula, classed among one of the 10 most beautiful treks in the world!

In the past local people used this walk to reach Positano on the coast where they could sell their own local products to the market. They carried their goods by mules following the path along the sea.

On this path we can admire the stunning vineyard terraces clinging to the rocks, built using limestone rocks resulting in a magnificent and unique form of art.

A spectacular and eye opening view appears at 600 mt of these incredible heights where we are able to see the coastline towards Positano including the islands of "Li Galli" and Capri, a memorable sight!

Itinerary

This path begins in Agerola - Bomerano, a small village at 600 mt above the sea level, from where we follow the famous "path of the Gods" descending to Nocelle.

Once in Nocelle we have a possibility of having lunch in a Trattoria (a typical family restaurant) on a terrace with a full view of Positano or we can opt for a sandwich stop in a square close to the main church.

After lunch we have choice, we can go by steps to experience an old descend towards Positano or take the local bus/taxi to Positano

Once in Positano you have time to explore the centre which is famous for shopping (the famous Positano fashion style, linen & cotton dresses), sandals and ceramics.

Walking time: 3 hours (up to Nocelle)+1 hour (up to Positano)
Distance: 7 km up to Nocelle or 9 km up to Positano
Difference in level: 250 mt down to Nocelle or 650 mt down to Positano
Equipment:You need hiking shoes with a good grip on the sole. I suggest high shoes up to the ankle and walking sticks. At least 1 lt of water is essential.

A Recent Review of this tour

Rosa handled all details beautifully including lunch reservations and arranging for my husband, who did not do the hike, to be picked up at our hotel in Positano and driven to the restaurant after the hike. The Walk of the Gods was spectacular! Rosa was super efficient, knowledgeable, flexible and accommodating. Just lovely! Thank you, Rosa for an experience my family will never forget! It was truly a pleasure meeting and spending time with her.
