“Just cool”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

We took an afternoon hike in to Montepertuso. You need to be in at least a little shape. You will not regret the experience.

“View, view, view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We only went on the path for a short distance since it started to rain. There are numerous paths, and often we had to backtrack to get on the right one. It's pretty rocky and steep in places, and I had to watch my footing over the loose stones. (It was not a problem for my husband.) Overall it was a spectacular place, and I wish we could have walked further.

“Walk in heavy rain and fog”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Did the walk with my wife on 28 Nov 12. Started the walk after lunch. Took the bus from Amalfi to Bomerano . Storm clouds were gathering when we left Amalfi. By the time we reached Bomerano, the town was covered in fog and the street + church square were deserted.

We started the walk in intermittent drizzle. Other than meeting a man with his mule near Grotta Biscotto, we didnt meet anyone else throughout the walk. After Grotta Biscotto, heavy fog came in from the sea. Half way through, the sky opened up. There were distant thunder and lightning. Though we were pelted with heavy rain, we can still see the (red/yellowry white) route markers. The scenery was surreal.

We missed our planned exit at Nocelle and continued to Montepertuso.
All in, the walk was not difficult. The rocky part of the path was not slippery, even in the rain.

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

My wife and I hiked up from Positano, through Montepertuso and Nocelle along the path, and then descended back down to the coast road at Praiano where we caught a local bus back to Positano. We were there in mid-October, a week after the region had suffered a great deal of rain, but the weather couldn't have been more perfect for our visit. We love to hike, and this was one of our all-time favorite, relatively short day hikes. The only drawback of the hike was the stress on our knees and ankles from the descent down so many stone steps to Praiano.

“Zia Lucy The Best Guide for your Amalfi Coast Hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

The Amalfi Coast offers a myriad of scenic hikes. The Footpath of the Gods is only one of these hikes. The views are spectacular and the hikes are on old goat paths and donkey paths used by the mountain people, before roads were installed--only 20 years ago--to give easier access to the popular coastal areas.

My guide for my 6-week stay in Positano was Lucia, owner of Zia Lucy. Lucia (Lucy) will personalize any hike to your abiilty/preference/time constraints. She is a TRUE LOCAL, born and raised in Positano and speaks excellent English, has a degree in Literature and is working on an Art History degree, as well as teaches English & Spanish classes in Positano. Not only do you get an articulate, Positanese historian as a guide, but she can show you off-the-beaten-path places and share stories that give you a true local-flavor that you will not get in any guidebook.

Her knowledge--fauna, flora and lore--of the mountains along the Amalfi Coast is unsurpassed and you will feel safe and secure at all times with her. We toured the cemetary, the town (she also offers some wonderful in town tours), various villages within Positano, Footpath of the Gods, The Valley of the Mills (near Scala/Amalfi), The Torre dello Ziro and other hiking in nearby towns/villages.
