Overview

Also known as the Path of the Gods, this legendary trail follows the path the gods took when they came to Earth to save Ulysses from the Sirens lurking off the coast of Positano.

Description

There are a few variations of this trail, mostly in start and end points. Some folks will start in Praiano on the coast, run up to Bomerano and then begin the trek. From Nocelle, about half of runners, head down the steep steps to the coast and heading over to Positano, and the other half head northwest, winding along the roads and trails, entering Postiano from above.

The trail is mostly downhill, but in the middle becomes a bit mroe rugged with some ups and downs. However, the views along the entire length of the hillside trail are stunning. The run is marked by terraced cliff slopes, bright blue ocean, cliffside dwellings and a stunning trail that winds through it all.
