between the sky and the sea
Walking with the Gods to Positano
The most famous walk of the Amalfi peninsula, classed among one of the 10 most beautiful treks in the world!
On this path we can admire the stunning vineyard terraces clinging to the rocks, built using limestone rocks resulting in a magnificent and unique form of art.
A spectacular and eye opening view appears at 600 mt of these incredible heights where we are able to see the coastline towards Positano including the islands of "Li Galli" and Capri, a memorable sight!
This path begins in Agerola - Bomerano, a small village at 600 mt above the sea level, from where we follow the famous "path of the Gods" descending to Nocelle.
Once in Nocelle we have a possibility of having lunch in a Trattoria (a typical family restaurant) on a terrace with a full view of Positano or we can opt for a sandwich stop in a square close to the main church.
After lunch we have choice, we can go by steps to experience an old descend towards Positano or take the local bus/taxi to Positano
Once in Positano you have time to explore the centre which is famous for shopping (the famous Positano fashion style, linen & cotton dresses), sandals and ceramics.
