Amalfi Coast is not only beaches and good food but it is also nature and sport: The hiking trails are scattered throughout the coast which offer views and kind experiences. So, backpack and suitable shoes, here is our personal ranking of the best hiking trails in Amalfi Coast
5) Volpe Pescatrice – Furore LOW DIFFICULTY
In fifth place a short excursion, not excessively difficult, but very exciting: it starts from the Church of S. Elia in Furore up to the Fiordo di Furore in about 40 minutes.
A staircase in the shade of a carob tree will trace the ancient path of the farmer-fisherman. Initially steep, however, You will be able to enjoy the seaview as you go down: the final stop is a village of fishermen consisting of perched houses.
4) Maiori – San Nicola Cloister – Minori LOW DIFFICULTY
The aim of the route is to reach San Nicola Cloister between Maiori and Minori (You could start from both villages) for this suggestive mountain path with low difficulty and a duration of about 2 hours. We are not excessively high but You can still enjoy the view of the peaks of Sant’Angelo, Finestra and Demanio Mountains.
3) Praia – Bomerano – Marina di Praia MEDIUM DIFFICULTY
We increase a bit of difficulty with a particular path closest to Masavillas from Bomerano to Marina di Praia for about 4 km. Departure from the central square of Bomerano, an hamlet of Agerola, walking on the mule track to reach the cave of Santa Barbara. From there, go to Praiano and Vettica Maggiore and then move on to the coastal road.
2) Valle delle Ferriere – Amalfi – Scala LOW DIFFICULTY
A real natural oasis, an immersion in the green with the typical atmosphere of canyons: a fantasy novel. It is possible to reach the Valle delle Ferriere or from Amalfi where the route will be uphill or from Minuta di Scala where the path will be downhill. During this path, You will cross Valle dei Mulini – with the remains of
ancient paper mills – up to the Ferriere crossed by the Canneto stream.
1) Path of Gods – Agerola – Positano MEDIUM DIFFICULTY
The most famous path of the Amalfi Coast, about 5 hours of walking with an altitude difference of 600 meters. For this reason, it’s called “of the gods” for the divine landscape that you can enjoy from there. An atmosphere immersed in silence and Capri in front of you. Continuing You will arrive at the Biscotto Cave and cross Serra Mountain. Once arrived in Nocelle we recommend a last effort: 1500 steps separate You from Positano where You can take a bath regenerating before facing the return.
