Tips for Hiking Path of the Gods

Hands down the most popular Amalfi Coast hike — the Path of the Gods (AKA Sentiero degli Dei) is a relatively flat, point-to-point trail that extends from the town of Nocelle (near Positano) to the town of Bomerano. The hike features stunning views of coastal Italian towns and bluffs leading to the Tyrrhenian Sea.
