This was the best hike I have done in Italy

Great hike. You'll see a historic church, herds of sheep, and taste delicious mountain water along this hike. Always left before sunrise because there is limited shade. Great spot for lunch and some rest at the top.

Took the bus from amalfi to Praiano then took what felt like a million stairs up to the path of gods. If you decide to start here just be prepared to be walking up steep stairs for about an hour. Definitely worth it but a little harder than we expected. When the path ended, we had trouble finding our way out to positano but it was also getting dark. Start to finish it took us about 5 hours but we were probably a little slower than normal because my wife is 6 months pregnant. Ended taking a taxi back to amalfi for $75 euro because we were too tired to find the bus.

Loved this. Hiked only
Part of this and had to train to two of the cities. It is simply beautiful but quite a challenge both climbing uphill and steps and then rocky down. But worth the views completely. Very good. Would so
Do it again if I get to go back.

What an amazing hike! Incredible views and great sights to see along the trail. Madonna della rupe, the church of San Michele (Michael the archangel), and the statue of Christ at the top- all make this a beautiful trail and an awesome way to see the mountains in this area. There is a maintained rocky trail but it does include some loose terrain and some steeper areas. I wouldn’t call this a kid friendly trail but anyone in decent shape should have no problem. I highly recommend this trail, it was an awesome experience.

Beautiful and vibrant city... Easily walking!

Nice touristic attractions

Path of the Gods was a hiking trail with amazing views! For the most part I did not feel the trail was very difficult. It was well traveled so easy to follow. The most difficult part was the 1700 steps down at the end. Very tough on the knees.

Magnificent hike no question one of the best of our lives. Hike towards positano to walk towards the breathtaking view

A great hike and great scenery all the way from Monterosso to Riomagiorre. The leg from Monterosso to Vernazza could be quite challenging for some as there are literally 100s of stairs to climb. We had great weather and quite a warm day, so ensure you have water. The track was closed between Corniglia and Riomaggiore, but it is an incentive for us to go back and do it again!!! The picturesque villages are just a bonus along the way and there are plenty of photo opportunities.

Dalla Chiesa di Tossino(strada da Faenza per Modigliana) si sale (guado per ponte inagibile) a Torre di Ceparano. Ritorno per crinale sud e discesa da strada di San Casciano o San Cassiano sino a statale, indi a Tossino.

From the Church of Toxin (road from Faenza to Modigliana) climbs (turn for uninhibited bridge) at Torre di Ceparano. Return to the south ridge and downhill from San Casciano to state road, and to Toxino.

Hike from Bomerano to Nocelle to Santa Maria del Castello to Positano Centrale

Eye of the Gods. We didn’t do the out and back as described. However, we did add the hike from Santa Maria del Castello to central Positano. In total, it was a long 8.9 miles.

We were staying in central Positano, so we took a car from Positano to Bomerano and started with many others on the “Path of the Gods” trail. The trail was at first easy to moderate and when we arrived in Nocelle, that’s where we diverged from the “Path of the Gods” and this hike truly began. In fact, we didn’t see any other hikers for the next 4 miles until we got back near Positano.

There’s a right turn straight up stairs that keep going up, out of town, to the end of the stairs and out into the beautiful landscape. The climb is strenuous and my wife was going to kill me if I said we’re almost at the top again. I can really only recommend it for those who are very fit and healthy. The climb is an elevation gain of 1,500 feet in less than a mile and the path down, though more gradual, took its toll on our knees on down.

Recent fires burned the landscape at the top of the climb in addition to wooden steps that were there to aid in the ascent making the climb more difficult in some areas. The trail seemed to be gone in one area and we had to climb large boulders and look for the painted red dots that marked the trail across the rock.

Once at the top (for real this time) the views are amazing and you can look down through the “eye” which gives this trail its name. It’s something most who visit Positano never even know is there.

The trail continues in an easy descent parallel to the coast above Nocelle, looking way down on Montepertuso (which itself is 1,500 steps above Positano) past more burn areas including the burned wooden trail railing in some places and onto Santa Maria del Castello. From there, we walked a short distance down a road to another path that led to a stone trail with stairs that continued for nearly 2 miles down 1,700 vertical feet to central Positano where we were staying.

beautiful views all the way up!

Fantastic hike with unbeatable views. Did the day after traveling here to kick some jet lag. Would not recommend it if it recently rained/is raining...would be too slippery/muddy. Follow the red dots on your hike to know you're on the right path...

Excelente. De los mejores ever.

Gave it four stars for the it's a volcano factor. Awesome views and some some steam from the crater made this is a great outing. Not a rustic hike by any means and expect lots of people.

The photos are long exposures which then doesn't document the people/crowds. Even at night. There will be crowds. Still 5*.

Rome is amazing. It's fountains so beautiful. Great for night time too.

It was a warm day. We were very hot. Lots of history amazing.

Do this one at night. It's amazing and the photography opportunities are outstanding.
