Beautiful views and a good climb on the west side! It took us just over two hours at a pretty steady pace.

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!!

Garbage. About 75% of the "trail" are drivable roads with no sidewalks

Beautiful. Theres a lovely place close to the top. Rifugio papa. So good.

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.

Spettacolo
Si può salire anche da Pagnona

beautiful. arrived by ferry to vernazza. hiked to corneglia. had lunch and hiked back to vernazza. by then hike was elbow room only.

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.

Really super trail but someone should have posted something about hunting season being open. Lots of shotguns heard along the way.

Not much you say other then... wow. :o

Breathtaking view all the way to the top!

Beautiful views! Slightly challenging uphill but if you are moderately in shape you should be fine. Well-marked and if you dont want to do the whole 4 miles there is a marked trail half way that will take you back down to your car and the cute and strange little bar/restaurant where a cold beer was appreciated! This is what we did and it took us 2 hours. If doing the whole loop around altissimo I think it would be 4 hours but I stop and take a lot of pictures. The ride up in our car to get to the trail was exciting (gps was exact) and beautiful as well- mountains and small towns with views that extend to the sea.

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.

Se il tracciato si compie durante una giornata solegggiata si trovano parecchie gelaterie lungo il percorso; se invece piove ci si consola con calici in diverse enoteche selezionatissime.

Beatific! Especially at sunset.

Every corner presented new and beautiful views.

Beaucoup de marches. Évitez les jours trop chauds

trail starts by a blue house in Levanto. glorious views of the sea through out. lots of steps up and down on both ends of the trail.

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.

The views you get on this hike are awesome. All the villages and the mostly untouched coastline makes for a unique experience.

Difficulty : Moderate, It can be steep at times but not the biggest struggle if fit. Walk to or from Monterosso with this hike to make a great days hike, with time in each village. Mod - Heav Traffic.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

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!!

Trail is very beautiful though it can be quite rough and steep at times, though walked past plenty of people over 65+ and some were overweight walking this path so for most people it can be done. Add on as many other walks in this area to create a bigger hike, as I believe most people walk or have walked from Corniglia - Vernazza with this hike.

Moderate - Heavy Traffic, Moderate Difficulty

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!

Beautiful! Wish I had my hiking poles with me.

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.
