I was born and raised in the Monti Lattari, where I have cultivated a passion for the mountains since I was a child. Over time I pursued the studies that would lead me to turn my passion into a profession, specialising in forestry and cartography. In 2010, I obtained the AIGAE Environmental Hiking Guide card.

Full description

The Amalfi Coast is a place of incredible beauty, unique and world-famous for its brilliant colours and breathtaking views overlooking the sea. With a guided trek from Agerola to Positano you can discover it in all its splendour.

The Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods ) is a famous route, so called because it takes place between sky and sea, in the midst of fantastic nature and full of magnificent views, so beautiful that they were reserved for the gods, according to Amalfi legend.

An AIGAE environmental guide will lead you along the Coast, amidst the scent of lemons and Mediterranean vegetation. The blue of the sea will be a constant presence at your side and all you have to do is enjoy this earthly paradise in complete relaxation.

What we will do

We will meet in Agerola (NA), a town located 600 metres above sea level, with a wide view of the Amalfi Coast. There our guide will be waiting for us and we will begin our walk following the mountainside and passing through terraces of vineyards.

Immersed in the typical Mediterranean vegetation, we will face some uphill and downhill stretches on steps and rocky terraces, which are short and never too challenging. We will stop several times at the most panoramic spots to take photos and enjoy the viewpoint.

Towards the end of the walk we will arrive in the small hamlet of Nocelle, a picturesque village overlooking the bay of Positano. Here the guided tour will end and we can decide whether to rest and have lunch in a local trattoria (the guide will be happy to give us advice and suggestions) or continue down the 1500 steps of the famous staircase that leads directly into the centre of Positano.

Alternatively, a bus service is available from Nocelle (not included in the participation fee). The itinerary is about 8 km long, which can be covered in 4 hours at a relaxed pace.
