Their are many paths that you choose from, which are all fascinating and more or less difficult . Let’s look at some of the most important and famous paths.
Path of The Gods (Sentiero degli Dei)
The Path of the Gods is the most famous trekking route of the Amalfi Coast.
From the Antico Casale farmhouse it is possible to reach the section of Nocelle and follow the path up to Bomerano, near Agerola.
The route of course, can also be done in reverse, however, taking the path from Vettica Maggiore can also be interesting, this way you can encounter the churches of St. Dominic and St. Mary in Castro ( built in 1100 ), along the way. There will dreamy views, overlooking the sea and Capri in the background and a fantastic view of the Amalfi Coast, especially if you follow the path from Bomerano to Nocelle.
The duration is about 3 hours. It is important to wear comfortable shoes and bring lots of water (especially in summer) and a camera that can stop time and save the memories of such a great experience.
Valle delle Ferriere
The scents of the Mediterranean and of the citrus trees will be the backdrop to the wonderful view.
This path also has a duration of about 3 hours and passes through the natural reserves of Valle delle Ferriere, of Agerola or even of the Amalfi. Here the climate is very particular, so much so that here many rare flora and faunas have developed.
This route is generally more difficult then the Path of the Gods, but it will permit you to be emersed into a forest of spring sources (like the one of Acqualella ) and even small waterfalls.
This is the perfect path for those who can not give up the sea.
It is the fastest way to get there compared to other options. You start from Nerano , from there the path leads and reveals to stunning views of the islands of Capri, the Gauls and the ancient Saracen Towers.
It ends in the beautiful and unspoiled Jeranto Bay, Protected Nature Reserve Area, where you can relax in the beautiful waters. This concludes the tour going as far as the tip of the Sorrento Peninsula, where you will find the ancient tower of Punta Campanella , built in 1300.
The journey time is approximately 3 hours.

From where you can enjoy a magnificent view of everything that surrounds it, namely the Gulfs of Naples and Salerno, Vesuvius, the Sorrentine Peninsula and the Isle of Capri.
It’s an extremely panoramic view point that has unique charm but, given the height, it is very challenging.
