On the Pathway of the Gods, with our feet on the ground

It may sound bombastic, but the name Pathway of the Gods (or “Sentiero degli Dei”, in Italian) is quite fitting for the wonderful trekking trail joining the Amalfi Coast with the Sorrento Coast. We are certain the gods of Mount Olympus would have happily left their celestial footprints along this road.

Indeed, according to legend, the gods walked these ten kilometers of panoramic itinerary to help Ulysses when he was trying to resist the melodious, mortal beckoning of the Sirens, who lived in the nearby Li Galli archipelago.

However, we believe it is not legend, but the beauty of the views you can enjoy from this coastal trail that justifies its name.

The Pathway of the Gods starts in a hamlet of Agerola (Bomerano) and ends in Nocelle, near Positano: try feeling like a god for a few kilometers, but watch out for the more impervious stretches, where the road runs along

dizzying cliffs. Keep your feet on the ground, and protected by adequate shoes!
