You can choose to make the round trip from Bomerano or get off at Positano from Nocelle on foot or by bus.
The Path of the Gods starts from Agerola, more precisely from the hamlet of Bomerano, and arrives at the hamlet of Nocelle, in Positano. But how do you get there?
One of the best choices is to sleep in Bomerano, both for its proximity and for its particularly advantageous prices compared to the more expensive Amalfi Coast. In this case, you can easily walk to the trailhead and use public transport to return.
Once you’ve reached the end of the trail, you can return from Positano to Agerola by bus, or you can take the ferry. In either case, you’ll arrive in Amalfi, from where you’ll need to take a shuttle to Bomerano (Agerola).
- From Naples
Public transport to Bomerano is provided by the SITA line, which covers the entire Amalfi Coast. In Naples, you can leave from the Varco Immacolatella terminus and Via Marina Porta di Massa. This is the ideal choice if you don’t want to struggle with the twists and turns and traffic leading to Positano and Amalfi. Tickets are fairly inexpensive (usually around 2 to 3 euros, depending on the route). Alternatively, you can take the train from Naples to Castellammare di Stabia and from there take a SITA bus to Agerola. In summer only, you can reach Amalfi from Naples by ferry (1 hour 45 minutes) and then take the SITA bus to Bomerano (50 minutes). If you’re traveling by car from Naples, take the A3/E45 freeway and follow it to the Castellammare di Stabia exit. Then head towards Gragnano / Lettere / Agerola / Amalfi and take state road SS 145 (also known as Statale Sorrentina), then state road SS 366 towards Agerola. Unfortunately, you may find it difficult to park close to the Sentier des Dieux. Indeed, its location has not allowed the creation of large parking lots, and it is preferable to head directly for the center of Bomerano where there are free parking lots which, being few in number, are very busy during the summer months. Alternatively, there’s the parking lot near the town’s stadium, where you can leave your car for the whole day for just 5 euros: an acceptable sacrifice to enjoy one of Italy’s most beautiful itineraries.
- From Amalfi
To reach the village of Agerola, you can take the SITA buses, which leave from the Piazza Flavio Gioia bus station in Amalfi, stopping at Bomerano. Once on the bus, the driver will direct you to the stop on the right, and from there you can follow the road signs to the start of the path.
- From Praiano
For those wishing to reach the Sentiero degli Dei from Praiano, you’ll need to climb a long staircase of around 580 meters to get from sea level to the Colle Serra pass.
- From Sorrento
From Sorrento, you can take the SITA bus to the Circumvesuviana station, near Piazza Lauro. For your convenience, you can opt for an excursion with a round-trip transfer in a comfortable, air-conditioned minibus included in the price. Don’t forget to wear comfortable hiking boots and check the weather conditions before setting off!
