“Beautiful Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. Very challenging and steep in some places. Not for young children or inexperienced hikers.

“Breathtaking view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The hike was more than 2 hours and hard at times, but completely worthwhile. The variety of native plants and flowers, the beauty of the vistas, the fine air and the bright colors all wrapped our senses and made us appreciate even more the final destination: a family trattoria where "nonna" prepares pasta and so many good dishes with their own produce.
Better if you go with an enviromental guide who will help you appreciate the natural beauty and the history of the place.

“Do in winter.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

This path was sweet, but only because we were fit enough for the 1746 stairs up at the beginning and down at the end. You can also take the bus, cutting out the stairs at both ends. The views are fantastic on a clear day. Do this in winter. It was 10 degrees C and sunny on December 23rd, 2012. Perfect weather. In 30 degree heat this walk would be a death march.

“Hiking Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is a must do for hikers. Its relatively easy walk with some slightly strenuous stretches. If you are not fit do not attempt the 3000 steps leading to the trail from Positano. There are alternatives. Grab the bus to Amalfi and start the hike there. The views along the way are remarkable. You feel like you are looking down from the clouds (Thus the name) onto the gorgeous cliffs and coast.

“My new favorite place. Best workout ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Most beautiful workout you could ask for. I was sore for 3 days after (think thousands of steps up/down) but would do it all over again. Wish I could go back tomorrow. Every 5 minutes you get a new, breathtaking view of the coast. Would suggest water and a backpack and a camera. Not sure how people survive doing it in the summer, but it is perfect for active people in cooler temps.
