need definitive advice on path of the gods from positano

hi, browsing the past forum answers on this topic has yielded unclear info. i am staying in positano and would like to hike the path of the gods without paying for a guide if possible. can anyone please give PRECISE information on exactly where i need to leave from in positano, which bus i need to take to amalfi, which bus i need to take to bomerano, etc.? when i get off in amalfi do i need to go somewhere else to catch a bus to bomerano? once i get off at bomerano is it plainly obvious where the path of gods trail starts or how do i find it? it is my first time there and what will be useful is very SPECIFIC information.

thanks!

hi i have done it without a guide and was very easy.

take the sita bus from positano to amalfi (actually you can get off before amalfi at a bus stop where the other bus will go twords agerola (ask the driver), or if you prefer get to amalfi where you can change

ask the driver where you should get off at bomerano to start the sentiero degli dei.

hope you have a great day

take water and food

the buses will have the name of the direction on the bus (and when you get on the bus ask the driver to confirm direction. buy tickets before getting on usually there is one or 2 bars or tabacchi where you can buy tickets.

every body knows this path, so i am sure you will be fine. as you get to bomerano there shoukd be a sign (marked red-white.red ) these are CAI trails

A guide is definitely not needed. I thought about getting one but once there I found the path very easy to follow. Do print out a map though.

Lolita: where do you wish to go? Are you going to the Amalfi Coast, which is in southern Italy near Naples not near to Pisa or are you wanting to stay around Pisa?

I would strongly recommend you start a new thread with your question because people who have already responded to this one may not click on it again.

You will get more advice/help if you do that.
