private guided tour with transportation from Salerno
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!
We meet in Salerno or in Vietri sul Mare and we reach by car the village of Agerola in one hour.
Agerola is the starting point of the Path of the Gods. It's a nice village at 600 meters above the sea level. It's also called the "little Switzerland". Before starting the walk we take a coffee and we enjoy the atmosphere of this special place.
We do a round walk along the Path of the Gods to enjoy the stunning view up to the island of Capri and we come back to Agerola for lunch.
We can have a light lunch in a cafe or in a family farm.
After lunch we come back by car to Salerno.
