“Positano is for the heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

I've taken the bus down from Nocelle - Casa Cuccaro which I strongly recommend again Dina&Pepe the hosts of the year/centennial. I've stop downtown at a kiosk to buy a book for the holiday and asked the funny venerable italian owner of the shop " I've read a lot about Positano, but could you tell me what is the really important thing to do in Positano". The wise answer had been "Absolutamente niente! Positano is for the heart, go to the beach, walk around have a pizza, have a beer and take in the scenery and above all the atmosphere. I did exactly that for 4 days... and it worked. So once in Positano, relax, take a deep breath, watch the orchestra on Saturday, taste the food on hidden streets restaurants... and everything will be fine.

“A great walk (no hiking boots required)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Beautiful vistas. We were staying in Nocelle. Took a bus to Positano, a boat to Amalfi, and then a bus to Bomberano (spelling?). It may take you a while to get to the start or get back to the start but worth the time. Make sure you have enough water. Take a picnic lunch and you won't be dissatisfied.

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We absolutely loved the Walk of the Gods. This is not to be missed by those who are fit enough to walk three miles over occasionally uneven terrain. We were able to do it fine with a guidebook (Walking the Amalfi Coast, available on Amazon) without a guide, though we saw a couple of guides on the trail that we would not have minded walking with.

Once you get to Nocelle or Montepertuso, it is possible to take a local bus back down to Positano. We walked all the way to the bus stop on the main road behind Positano, but it is not necessary to do that to enjoy the main part of the walk which stretches from Bomerano to Nocelle.

“Exhilarating Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Described everywhere as 'easy', it can still be challenging to the unfit and while you don't need to hold onto rocks as you climb, you most definitely need to watch your step as you clamber over the rocky 'steps' along the path. I read about starting from various places including Positano and Bomerano. We decided not to climb the 900 odd steps up to the mountain top but to conserve our energy by getting a local bus from Positano to Nocelle. We didn't regret it especially as we walked down from Bomerano to Priano. Walking up may give a sense of accomplishment but the real thrill is the panoramic views from the top. Make sure at all costs when in Bomerano to visit Pub Crazy Burger and don't be put off by the name, it's a fabulous place for lunch with great organic food and genuine warmth.
