Take a 3-hour guided hike along the Amalfi Coast's Path of the Gods. Savor the sweet scent of lemon groves and see old vineyards. Follow in the footsteps of woodsmen and shepherds. Walk the paths that were used to transport goods from village to village.
What to Expect
Following pick-up from your hotel, trek along the ancient "Path of the Gods" on the Amalfi Coast.
Discover an extraordinary monument to the boundless obstinacy and exertion of humankind. Throughout the ages, people have colonized even the most impracticable places on the Amalfi Coast. Shepherds, woodsmen and farmers still use the path to this day. It passes dry stonewalls, vegetable gardens, woods, lemon groves and old vineyards.
See terraces that drop from the cliffs to the sea. Discover the caves that house pens, folds, depots and other constructions. Look for the gulls, crows, peregrine and kestrel falcons that perch on the Dolomite cliffs. Marvel at delicate orchids, and savor the zesty scent of the lemon groves. Watch the waves crash against giant boulders far below. An endless succession of vehicles will sweep around the hairpin bends of the coastal road.
Carved in the Middle Ages to transport goods between villages by mule, the trails of the Amalfi Coast offer some of the best hikes in the Mediterranean.
