The Path of the Gods

The Path of the Gods connects Agerola, a small town on the Amalfi Coast, to Nocelle, a hamlet of Positano.
he name is enough to understand the immense beauty of the path: it is advisable to follow it from Agerola to Nocelle in order to walk slightly downhill and have the view of the Amalfi Coast and Capri in front of it.


Starting point: Agerola or Praiano

Place of arrival: Nocelle.

Journey time: about 4 hours (one way)

Kilometers: 7.8 km.
The Path of the Gods is a mountain path so it is always open and free, has exposed sections and without protection so it is not recommended to walk it with children and it is not passable in a stroller. The path is not recommended for those suffering from vertigo.
The name derives from historical facts and legends according to which the Greek gods passed right here to save Ulysses from the sirens who were on the island of Li Galli, even the writer Italo Calvino described this path as "that road suspended over the magical gulf of “Sirens” still today marked by memory and myth ”, this sentence can also be read on the ceramic tiles placed at the very beginning of the Path of the Gods.
Along the way there are also several sources of fresh and drinkable water.
Throughout the Path of the Gods there are places worthy of attention among which we can certainly include the Grotta Biscotto, the Rock Villages and the "Pistillo".
