Hike from Bomerano to Nocelle to Santa Maria del Castello to Positano Centrale This route includes the hike from Santa Maria del Castello to central Positano. The trail is at first easy to navigate. Wen you arrive in Nocelle, that’s where you diverge from the “Path of the Gods” and this hike truly begins to get more challenging and less crowded. 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, really only recommended for those who are 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, takes its toll on your knees. Once at the top 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, walk 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.
