“Vertiginous beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Easy to follow once you are on the path. Hiking with a photo camera takes longer time (consider the daylight limits in low season, it gets dark by 5 pm). I was hiking there late December and it was very comfortable (I assume it would be too hot to make this hike in summer). Suitable boots are neccessary (stone-paved track can be slippery in some places). The views are magnificent and there are occasional tables and benches on top of mountains (looks perfect for romantic dates:).

I walked from Positano to Nocelle (or you can take a local bus for this part if it is too much for you), joined the path there and made it up to Agerola, where took a bus to Amalfi, then changed back to Positano (if you start in the morning you can cover several towns on the coast). It feels very safe up there and you meet other hikers or locals on the road. It was definitely the highlight of my 2-day stay in Positano. Unforgettable beauty of Amalfi coast.

“A Fantastic Walk along the Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I walked from Bomerano to Positano. The walk is undulating but has some of the best views anywhere. A real gem.

“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.

“Path of the Gods from Burmurano to Nocelle.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is a wonderful hike but bring plenty of water. It is not a stroll in the park and you should be equipped with good hiking footwear, head covering--if in late spring through October--and food for a picnic. Unsurpassed vistas along the way.

“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.
