It is hard to imagine any hike that could live up to the name ‘Path of the Gods’, but this one comes close.
We arrived on the Amalfi Coast yesterday as part of a family vacation we are doing in Italy. After a day of mostly travel from Rome it felt good to be out hiking. The walk starts with a pretty grueling 1,800 steps up a homemade series of staircases, first to an active convent and then upward to the ridge of the hills that characterize the amalfi coast.
From there, the hike is a nice rolling 5 to 14 kilometer hike along the ridgeline, depending where younwant to come off. The views were spectacular – sheer cliffs, villages built into the cliffs and the aqua blue Mediteranian Sea. Honestly, the toughest part of the hike was the steep beginning (and at 1,800 steps it is not to be taken lightly) but aside from that it is a pretty easy hike that is very accessible to anyone in reasonable shape. We were impressed by how many elderly people who were doing it.
And finishing off with a glass of wine on the beach in Positano — can’t beat that
