Amazing views, can’t get much better than that. Lots of stairs to get to the hike but significantly worth it. Bring lots of water.

The path of Gods, well celebrated everywhere is an opportunity to see the Amalfi Coast from above discovering small villages ( Bomerano, Nocelle, Montepertuso ) you never pass by. Very easy trail for everyone.

Wonderful views with beautiful scenery. We started early from Positano walking to Bomerano for lunch, then caught a bus down to Amalfi for the afternoon. Catching a late afternoon ferry back to Positano. Fantastic day.

Absolutely stunning throughout. I'm a beginner so it took me longer than some people have said, approximately 4.5 hours including a short lunch break. It seemed a bit dangerous at times. Don't trust all the wooden "fences", as some are broken.

We did this trail as part of a group tour the first week of October. We started in Bomerano, went out the “low path”, then circled back via the “high path”, rather than continuing on to Nocella and Positano. Going from Bomerano toward Nocella is certainly the more easy direction. We are hikers/cyclists/runners, so the loop seemed to well fit its moderate category. That said... a good portion of our group was unprepared (although warned) for the more difficult loop back toward Bomerano, which was primarily up hill. There is very little shade along the path, so be prepared with plenty of water and a hat! We also passed a couple of picnic tables, which would have made for a place to have lunch with a fabulous view! We did the hike in our running shoes, but would certainly have preferred to have had our hiking shoes, as the trail was slick with loose rock in some places. If you have a general level of fitness, this trail is beautiful!!! If you’re a “walker” but unaccustomed to hills and some minor scrambling... you may want to consider modifying your route and turning back for Bomerano a bit sooner than you feel might be necessary.

Definitely recommend starting in Nocelle and hiking to bomarando the. Coming back. Go early in the morning or week days. Loads of people/tours early afternoon to late afternoon. Makes for a long hike. Definitely loads of fun and worth it. Bring lots of water and decent hiking boots. Also hats and sun tan lotion. A good chunk of the hike is in the sun.

Hiked this last week 9/09/2019. Started at Nocelle and ended in Bomerano, didn’t bring any hiking boots and hiked this in Lakai skate shoes. Mild/moderate elevation gain very doable for anyone in decent shape with basic hiking experience. The only killer is the heat, little to no shade and in middle of the day, heat is absolutely brutal. Brought 3 liters of water and drank it all. And we missed the bus back from Bomerano to Amalfi twice before catching it back down there. Incredible views with some exposure throughout trail. Hoards is people hiking the other way from Bomerano to Nocelle.

Really beautiful. The views are magnificent. I saw many people in gear not appropriate for the trail like sandals, no water, no hat. It was a nice trail.

We took the bus from Sorrento to Praiano and started there. We are gluttons for punishment and took the stairs up to the trail via the older trail that accessed an old church/monastery. When we hit the main trail we headed to Bomerano (about 35-40 min.) so we could do the whole trail back to Nocelle. Once there we took the steps down to Positano. Hundreds upon hundreds of steps. They dump you out on the highway and walk about 20 minutes into town. That’s quite an experience in itself. You can catch the bus where the stairs terminate at the highway but we were taking a ferry back to Sorrento. The views were amazing, the trail fun and challenging. We found segments that were runnable. Please go prepared with athletic shoes, sun screen, and plenty of water. There were a couple places to refill water along the way.

We walked from bomerano for just over an hour (halfway to positano) and then looped back on a slightly higher train to avoid having to wait for a bus in positano back to our car. The path was extremely beautiful and fun (lots of rocks and steps). Would definitely recommend doing it - views are amazing.

First to Review

Pretty awesome hike with great views. We took the bus from Positano to the start of the hike. We bought a return bus ticket but ended up walking back to Positano for a better and longer workout. It ended up working out well for us because we would’ve had to wait 50 mins for the return bus to come anyway so we decided to get some more exercise instead. If you’re walking back to Positano town, make sure you don’t go down the stairs once you reach a random “call taxi” sign. Just follow the path where the cars go. Otherwise you will end up having to climb back over as the stairs lead you to an odd path and dead-end.
