Bomerano, a charming Alpine-style village high above the Amalfi Coast, is the starting point of the famous and fabulous Sentiero dei Diritti (Path of the Gods).
Le village est un joli endroit, bien entretenu, aux rues propres et aux habitants sympathiques. C’est un paradis pour les randonneurs, car plusieurs sentiers partent d’ici. Elle vaut la peine d’être visitée car elle contraste avec les villes côtières plus connues (et plus fréquentées) et permet de prendre l’air plus frais. Il y a plusieurs restaurants et cafés pour compléter votre excursion d’une journée.
The route from Bomerano, on the outskirts of Agerola, to Nocelle, a hamlet in Positano, is a section of the famous Alta via dei Monti Lattari variant, the Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods), which offers enchanting views over the landscape and draws the hiker’s attention to the agricultural activity still flourishing in some parts of the area, using ancient methods.
From Piazza di Bomerano, the Grotta Biscotto can be reached upstream, with its strong vertical development and interesting geomorphological features. From here, we continue on to Colle Serra, where you can observe other caves formed by fluvial erosion of limestone rocks, and where the eye is captured by extraordinary panoramic views stretching from the Amalfi coast to the island of Capri.
Retracing our steps, we approach, via Cannati and Grotte and following the border with Positano, the easternmost territory of its hamlet, Nocelle. Of course, you can also do the route “the other way round”, starting in Positano or Nocelle and finishing in Bomerano.
