Of all the walks along the Amalfi Coast that I've done, the Sentiero degli Dei is definitelynthe most well-sign-posted one. Being the most well-known and well-marked trail, it's also the busiest, but ifnyoynhead out early enough in the day (think 7-8 a.m.), you'll avoid both the worst of the heat and the crowds. Going earlier in the season - think late May to early June rather than July and onwards - can also help thin out the crowds. Trainers or hiking boots will do well enough on the path; just make sure your trainers have adequate grip for some of the steeper sections with loose rock chips going uphill, and a few patches of slightly slippery dust-coated rock headed downhill.

There are water taps along the route, so no worries about needing to bring a lot with you. The trail alternates between exposed, sunny sections and shaded forest sections. For those with accessibility needs, there are some porting companies that can help with finding the best route for you (not sure of any specific company names though, sorry).

If you're into climbing, there are some sections with cliff faces for scaling! Pretty sure it's mostly trad, didn't notice much bolting, as per alpine tradition.

All in all, the route feels fun. It's not the most challenging, but offers opportunities for lots of different types of outdoor enthusiasts. It may not be "gnar," but it's worth stoke - and the views are gorgeous!!!
