Amalfi Coast
Path Of The Gods – Mt. Tre Calli
July 7 – 11, 2017

There are Two trails from which to choose!

The Path Of The Gods – Agerola to Positano – Along the route you pass under the “Grotta del Biscotto – cave of the biscuit” where, in addition to the special geological conformation of the rocks you can admire ruins of antique houses embedded in the rocks of the cave. After “Colle Serra” there is enchanting scenery to the islands “Li Galli” and the Peninsula of Sorrento with Capri in the background. Continuing along the path you will reach ”Li Cannati”, Nocelle and Montepertuso and then go down to Positano via a long staircase to the beach of Positano.

Mt. Tre Callil – The Path Of The Gods – The more challenging and longer hike includes the Three Calli hike and the 1st section of the famous Path of the Gods. The Three Calli hike is one of superlatives. Incredible coastal views from ancient paths cut into the mountainside. Our hike leads toward the highest massif of Amalfi Coast, Sant’Angelo a Tre Pizzi. The coastal views are inspiring! On Mt. Tre Calli there are some of Amalfi’s finest viewpoints with sights of Positano, the finis terrae and the Isle of Capri. Our hike winds back down toward the sea and the stairs leading down to Praiano and the beach of Positano.

The hikes are designed and led by professional interpretive local guides and hosted by The Walking Connection. The hikes operate on the same day and are perfect for families and hikers of all levels.
From beginning to end, your journey along Amalfi Coast and at Conquer The Coast is measured not in miles, but milestones. There is a hike for everyone!

Italy is the “garden of Europe,” and the Amalfi Coast is its pièce de résistance (French), piatto forte (Italian) or really cool (English)!

In a country of extraordinary beauty, no landscape is more thrilling or serene than the Amalfi Coast. Towering limestone cliffs stand against an endless turquoise ocean and an endless blue sky. Pastel-washed villages are sculpted into hillsides. Poppies and bougainvilleas dot the landscape at every turn. Cafés line elegant piazzas. Pictures of the architecture and historical sights literally take themselves. And when we’re done hiking, the wine and cuisine are nothing short of legendary.
