The trail winds through Agerola and Positano, leading to a long panoramic staircase.
The tour includes a ferry transfer to Amalfi and a bus shuttle to Agerola/Bomerano - the place where the Path of Gods begins. You will return by ferry via Positano.

The valley welcomes visitors with the majestic sound of waterfalls and the remnants of the ancient industries that characterized the Amalfi Republic, with ferries and water mills.
