Inhoming the path of the Gods weekend in Agerola
“The Path of the Gods” weekend at Agerola and the Amalfi Coast
edited by Inhoming
With Donatella Franca and Maria we decided to spend a weekend at San Lazzaro di Agerola and for this occasion we will go through the already famous “Path of the Gods”.
The route is about 7 km long (up to Nocelle), with a negative difference of 200m. It takes about 3 hours to walk along an easy path with a view of the sea; If you pay attention to the signs you do not encounter great difficulty reaching the fraction of Nocelle (420 m).
The Path of the Gods begins from Bomerano, a hamlet of Agerola in Piazza Paolo Capasso.

“Trail of the Gods”, no accident was baptized so by the locals. Of fact, it offers a wonderful view of coastal and mountain landscapes from Positano to Capri. Walking along a guided trail that, on foot, hangs at about 500 meters above sea level between rocky passages, Mediterranean scrub, oak forests and terraces made on steep slopes.
In the square there are informative signs of the regional park of the Lattari Mountains; Nearby there is a secondary road, taking the one that goes down to the sea, following the first signs of the CAI on the pylons.
Finishing in the small peninsula of the Pennine River, you cross it along the wooden bridge and continue along the road to the end in a small open space where the trail begins (the Cave of the Cookie). Once in the resort of Colle Serra (580msl), as shown in cartography, there is an initial bifurcation that offers the possibility of choosing to undertake the high and low variants, then both rejoin after 1 km to the main route (Li Cannati 560msl) ; The only difference is that the low variant is more exposed than the tall one.
The trail ends at Nocelle, in the upper part of Positano. You can reach the center via a long staircase (1500 steps) and about 500 meters on foot. Alternatively there is the bus service. From Positano there are buses to return to Agerola.
After these wonderful views of the landscape ranging from the tip of Campanella to Capri with the Faraglioni, from Positano to the islands of Li Galli, we find it unnecessary to comment on the photos that follow.
