Path of the Gods (Sentiero Degli Dei) Tours

There is a hiking trail high above the picturesque Amalfi Coast known as the Path of the Gods, and it offers visitors a chance to get a bird’s eye view of the stunning scenery without leaving the ground.

The Path of the Gods - or Sentiero degli Dei in Italian - connects two little towns in the hills above the popular Amalfi Coast beach towns. The trail runs between Agerola (above Praiano) and Nocelle (above Positano) for about 4.8 miles.

The trail winds along the coastline, with an average of a 1,640-foot drop to the sea below. The views are spectacular - the lofty position is the reason the trail has such a poetic name. Hikers can start at either end of the trail, there is no “right” direction to walk in, but most start in Agerola because then the hike is primarily downhill to Nocelle and then you can descend some 1,500 steps into Positano itself.

There are many options for guided hikes of the Path of the Gods, which eliminate the need to figure out local buses and find the trailhead. There are day trips from the Amalfi Coast towns as well as Sorrento and Naples.

Practical Info

Be sure you’re wearing good hiking or walking shoes, and bring along plenty of water and sunscreen. You may also want to pack a picnic and stop along the way for lunch. Note that in some areas, the trail runs right next to the edge of the cliff - those with a severe fear of heights may find this disconcerting.
