Amalfi Coast: Path of the Gods Private Walking Tour

1. Amalfi Coast: Path of the Gods Private Walking Tour

Discover the Path of the Gods following its only original route from Agerola to Positano. You will hike approximately 4.5 miles (7km) on the mountain trail through the Mediterranean scrub and oak woods of the Amalfi Coast. Walk between the sky and sea along one of the most popular trails in all of Italy and the jewel of the Amalfi Coast and take stunning photos of the Amalfi landscape and its beautiful coastline. After about 2-hours walking you will arrive in the small hamlet of Nocelle, a very cute village overlooking Positano bay; here the tour ends and you can decide to rest or have lunch in a local trattoria. Your guide will be glad to help you in making a reservation and lead you to the restaurant. If you would like you can also follow your guide along scenic stairs down to Positano's center. If you want to enrich your day even more by letting yourself be pampered during this private tour, you can choose an additional option when booking your tour to have a private transfer service for you and a great lunch in a local "trattoria" right at the end of Path of the Gods.

Sorrento: Private Amalfi Coast Boating Tour

2. Sorrento: Private Amalfi Coast Boating Tour

Your tour begins as you are collected from your accommodation by private vehicle. From there, travel to your boat to begin sailing in the direction of the Campanella Headland. Along the way, admire the remains of the ancient Roman domus, known today as Villa Pollio Felice or simply “Ruina della Regina Giovanna”.

Despite being such a small place, the center offers many points of interest, including the cathedral and its crypt and the Amalfi Paper Museum. When visiting Amalfi it would also be a sin not to taste the “Santa Rosa” sfoglia, partnered with a nice Amalfi limoncello. Returning to the boat, sail to Li Galli to make your final stop. Whilst there, enjoy a bit of snorkeling among the cliffs of Li Galli which are populated by many species of fish. Once having returned back to port, a vehicle awaits you to take you back to your accommodation.

What people are saying about Amalfi Coast

Excellent!

I am so glad I did this tour! My tour guide was very personable. He explained the history of each landmark along the path and he took the time to stop & allow for pictures (there were many!) It is apparent that he is passionate about his work and carefully took the time to make sure I was happy with the tour. I understood that he truly cared. I enjoyed the experience & I would highly recommend this company.

We had a wonderful tour in a breathtaking landscape. On the bike you can absorb all the impressions much more intensely and leave the buses behind. Our tour guide was very nice and, despite the initial obstacles, everything went very well. We can only recommend the tour!

It was a very well organized tour. We went on the trip with Victor and he was very attentive and he made sure we had a great experience.

Fantastic experience. Mr. Nello super helpful and very kind. To repeat
