The name, quite rhetorical, is due to some aerial exposed stretches (made much more comfortable thanks to recent layouts). See magnificent views of the sea and splendid hamlets of Vettica Maggiore and Furore located just below the path. While from above, you'll look over the sea, see the extremely steep and wild noses of "Sant'Angelo a Tre Pizzi", the highest summit of the Sorrento Peninsula.
In spite of the name, the Path of Gods is an extraordinary monument to the work and exertion of the man that, throughout the ages, has been able to colonize even the most impracticable places on the Amalfi Coast.
Today the path is still used by farmers, woodsmen and shepherds, as it touches old vineyards clung to the mountain: the species of grape cultivated in the area is called "ped'e palomma" (the most ancient vine in Campania)
Beside the path, you'll find caves and terraces dropping from the cliffs to the sea and deep valleys. The caves host pens, folds, depots and other constructions. Off the vertical faces, with a dolomitic look, overlooking the path, you'll admire their elegant glides, peregrine and kestrel falcons, coming out their aeries.
You will start your day at 8am where you will be pick you up at a central meeting point and driven to Nocelle to start your walk.
