The “Walk of the Gods”

The most famous route is the Walk of the Gods (or Footpath of the Gods), the Sentiero degli Dei. This is a spectacular stretch of path between Bomerano, up in the hills, and the seaside resort Positano. The footpath, an old mule-path used before the coastline’s roads were engineered, winds along the hillside between terraces, some cultivated and some abandoned. You’ll pass inhabited dwellings and also picturesque ruins, reminders of life here before the sea-level towns became tourist honeypots. You can still pass locals walking along carrying baskets of harvested fruit and vegetables.
