Only have one morning to hike the Path of the Gods trail? This is the next best thing.

This trail starts right off the street Via Corvo. Look for the signs Via Chiesa Nuova, 82, 84017 Positano SA, Italy.

You will begin your ascent on stone staircases, however this will slowly turn into an advanced to difficult trail in parts as it is not upkept well throughout the year. This is a very strenuous hike in the summer as the temperatures climb, so bring lots of water along for safety! 

The views are spectacular and there is only one way up so there is no getting lost. You will end your trail at the church which has a spectacular view of the sea and the town below. 

This trail will take you roughly 2-4 hours depending on how quickly you can descend on the way back down. 

Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures and follow local regulations.
