The most amazing hiking trail I’ve encountered yet. Grab a sandwich from the mom-and-pop grocery and stop at the entrance of the advanced section for a bite before heading upwards. Stay on the lookout for the wild goats, you’ll hear them as you get closer - listen for bell sounds. They’re super nice and will let you feed them.

This is a hike you will remember for the rest of your life. We hiked from bomerano to the shore of Positano and it was the most amazing hike I have ever completed. The views are so amazing it is hard to comprehend that they are real. If you are visiting the amalfi coast and in good physical condition, I 100% think you should do this hike. I couldn't think of one other thing that I would rather do if I were in this area again. This hike will take you the better part of the day if you plan on taking you time and soaking in all the views, plus stopping in Positano for some much needed food after the long hike.

Also, the trail can be difficult to follow sometimes. Keep an eye out and bring a map.

Nice easy loop around Revello. Most of it on easy to follow steps and alleys but there is a brief 5-10 minute section that is a tiny goat trail. Depending on the season it might be overgrown. There is also a brief 5 minute section along a busy road. The rest is beautiful.

Good break from Napoli if you are nearby. Once it was well kept, nowadays just a path to top of volcano and around crater. Beautiful views to bay from top. Good parking.

This hike has it all. Loved every minute of it and hope to return. Leave yourself plenty of time to get to the trailhead, hike the terrain, take in the sights, and grab a beer after. 10/10.

I loved the scenic view from the start until the end. The thousands steps at the end are a great way to end this trail and to go swimming in Positano as a treat!

good parking. From the crater rim, you can walk down the West side trail to Lago Averno and combine the two walks. Active Fumaroles on the south flank of Monte Nuovo on the trail. not on the main trail

Honestly this was so easy! We saw all ages and body types making their was up to see the crater. Unfortunately we went on a day that was very foggy so we couldn’t see inside but it was super cool to be so close to such a historic site!! Worth the 10 euros!!

path of the goats (because literally goats) is fabulous. i did the reverse. from Positano-starting at the steps near Arienzo SİTA bus stop and hiked up to Bomerano. to go back take SİTA bus from Bomerano to Amalfi and then from Amalfi to wherever.

there is a bus (costs about eu3) from the train station at Pompeii or Orcelano that takes you to the trail ticket office. cost for trail is eu10. trail is about 300 m up the road from ticket office and you need to have those tickets to start the trail. Don't take a taxi. and don't take a taxi going down either. these stop a bit further down at parking lot and don't always go all the way back to a train station. tickets for bus are bought on board. schedule for bus going back is not frequent and remains a mystery.

Breathtaking view all the way to the top!

Vraiment chouette. Très court. Compter 1h 30 entre Bomerano et Nocelle. Après environ 800 m, on peut pendre un chemin par en haut ou par en bas, qui se rejoignent quelques km plus loin.

Didn't make it all the way to the Monte San Michelle peak, as we had a late start - but even the first couple of kilometres of the view (as well as the cable-car) offer fantastic views over the area.

Every corner presented new and beautiful views.

The views over Amalfi and out to the sea are worth the steps! The mills are a nice surprise as well. Go left at the first fork near Amalfi and your hike up won’t be as steep/full of stairs.

One of the rare parts of amalfi where you can get away from the rush and take in the beautiful coastline. I do not advise doing it twice in one day (return journey) as coming from Positano on the return had about 150 floors worth of stairs which hurt coming down, let alone going up after the hike and spending the day in positano, but I have no regrets.

Difficulty : Moderate - Hard, with the stairs the killer whether that be at the start or the end. Saw numerous amounts of older people (65+) struggling at stages but i do believe they all lived to tell the tale!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

Enjoyable hike sheltered by trees. Great cafe with local produce at the end of the hike!

A breathtaking walk with panoramic views each corner you turn. The first 50 minutes felt like a tough step class at the gym but then got easier. It’s a must!

A must-do while you are on the Amalfi Coast. The most gorgeous views you will have of the coast line. Everything I had read said the entire path takes 4.5 hours but my wife and I did it in about 2. There are plenty of places to stop along to way, a few picnic tables if you decide to bring something to eat.

I would recommend starting in Bomerano and ending in Positano. It’s much harder if you start in Positano because you have to walk up about 1,000 stairs to even get to the path. The path itself is also more strenuous from the Positano side.

Incredibly breathtaking. It may be one of my favorite hikes of all time. The air is crisp and fresh and the views are spectacular. If you start in Positano and take the steps to Nocelle and then start the path in the very early morning (before sunrise) we found less people, if any at all. I’ll be dreaming about this hike for sometime.

Excellent views of the surrounding areas of Amalfi

Beautiful hike but not 3.5 miles, my Garmin logged it 5.25. Water at the top of the Praiano section near the homes is nice. Of course steps and more steps but the views are worth it!! Busy in sections but not too bad

Almost 5 miles if you take variant that starts in the west side of Praiano. See my recording.

Breathtaking views and undulating hills make for a wonderful hike on this ancient walk.

Lovely hike ! You have to park either in the nearby parking garage (which I would recommend), or find a spot on the road. Then, you have to walk past all the shops to where the signs(they say the hike in Italian) begin popping up for the hike. The water was flowing, and it was beautiful! Worth it !

ottima applicazione!

Performed this hike with my partner. She is not to used to the elevation and imbalanced surfaces that the loose rocks imposed on her and thus the duration took a little longer. However, I must give her credit, we begun in Positano and climbed up several thousands of stairs (or at least it definitely felt like it) and we took the stairs to the top to the highest point for pictures in the rocky arch. We then went back on the decent to return to the path in which we continued to hike to The end of the trail in Bomerano.
All in all the hike was picturesque and remarkable. I would love to do it again. For an experienced moderate to experienced hiker I would say it could be completed in 2.5-3hrs (fast paced, no recovery spots). For the more irregular or inexperienced hikers I’d say enjoy the view, take the time to stop and enjoy the scenery, encapsulate every minute of your surroundings, take as many pictures as you can and definitely stop and the little cafes (1 or 2) along the way for a picturesque drink and relax. So, take your time. Extend the hike from a 2.5h fast paced hike to a 5-7h enjoyable cruise.
Happy hiking ✌️

Started in Praiano and made my way up to Bomerano. The trail up from Praiano to Bomerano definitely has some overgrown plant areas but the trail is generally easy to find. Views of the Mediterranean get better as you go up and the mountain inlet is covered in local lemon farms built into the mountains side. There were some small sheep as I got close to Bomerano, but they were heavily guarded by guard wolves. The wolves chased me as I made my way on the route I had planned so I had to take a 2 mile detour into the town of Bomerano rather than cutting through it to get straight to the trailhead. The hike from the start of the Path of the Gods to Nocelle is one I will never forget; they were some of the best views I have ever seen. After resting in Nocelle, I continued on to Positano. I felt like I walked down 1,000+ stairs to make my way to central Positano. I caught a ride back to Praiano on the hourly shuttle and finished up the day at Marina di Praia Beach. The whole hike took me around 7 hours. The hardest part was making my way up to the trailhead because it was a 2,000+ ft. climb up. A definite must-hike if you are staying on the Amalfi Coast.
