We did this hike after having many friends recommend it. We got rained on but were already halfway up the trail so we went on. The trail was built in WWI and has some information at the beginning explaining what it was used for during that period and after.

There are a couple places with in the tunnels where it gets really dark so you definitely want to have a flashlight or some type of light source with you. At the top there was a place where if you time it you can get food. We did not time it right, but they were kind enough to let us dry out by the fire and tie our dog up in shed so we could all be out of the rain. They way back down we opted to go down the road as it was getting dark and we wanted to see both sides.

The views are stunning even with the rain it was 100% worth it.

Beautiful overlook of the Mediterranean Sea, terraced farms, goats, etc... a must. Arrive I'm Bomerano early (we arrived at 8am and was plenty of parking available) because the parking lot can get full.

This was such an amazing hike. Due to the coastal route being washed out we had to travel up and over all of the cities. Most people start in Montorosso and end in Riomaggio. We started in Levanto and ended in Riomaggio. This ended up being a total of 18.5 miles for us. Make sure you purchase your Cinque Terre pass upon arrival and get it stamped when you start the hike. This pass is only about 30 Euros pp and includes all your buses and train rides for the day. Since we were staying in Levanto it was our train ride back that was only about 15 mins. If you start in Levanto it will add about 6.5 miles to the trek. It is definitely worth it. We only saw one group the entire way to Montorosso. Once you get through Montorosso it was so crowded and some people are out for a leisurely stroll. You have to be aggressive and say pardon on your left/right and just pass otherwise you will be struck forever. There are so many groups of kids too. Most of the groups are only going through one town and not doing the entire hike. We started at 9 am and ended at 5:30 pm. Killer dinner in Riomaggio too.

This was a pretty easy hike besides lots of stairs. Trail is marked very well all along the way. If you are staying on the Amalfi Coast you hop on the bus and take it to Poistano and then you grab a smaller bus to Nocello and start there. You hike to Praiano and can grab the small bus back to Poistano and then hop back on the big bus. You can do this all in reverse too. You can get bus tickets right inside the hotel or shops. Total cost was less than 10 euros per person. There were several groups that had paid for guides but we went solo. NO GUIDE necessary. You can not get lost. There are signs all the way that say Path of the Gods.

Very nice in May.

Awesome way to see the coast! Unbelievable views!

Incredible views throughout. More challenging than expected. Lots of steps at the end to get down to Positano.

Great hike, quite an elevation change in the heat.

There are sections that are closed. Hiked from Verano to Monterosso. pretty much a straight uphill steep trail up and the same coming down. Give yourself a little extra time to enjoy the views.

Monterosso to Vernazza. Amazing but very crowded in the towns. We went in September and it was unusually hot and dry.

We did just the Valle delle Ferriere. It is gorgeous. Moderate hike. Took 2.5/3 hours roundtrip to go up from Amalfi, get to the end, and turn around the way we came.
