An Instagrammer’s paradise, the Path of the Gods does not present any particular technical difficulties; the gradients are irrelevant, and it is almost entirely flat.
Perhaps, the most challenging stretch is from Nocelle to Positano: 1700 steps, fortunately downhill, divide these two places; if you don’t feel like it, in Nocelle you can take a shuttle directly to Positano.
Although the path is wide, in some places it overlooks gullies without protection, causing some discomfort to those who suffer from vertigo. If you suffer slightly, don’t worry: there is enough space to walk in peace.
For the rest, you don’t need a lot of technical equipment, apart from comfortable clothing, sneakers and a water bottle, which you can fill at the source along the road. If tired you can take advantage of the many picnic tables, positioned to always enjoy the best panorama.
The walk alternates shaded and sunny sections, and the path, composed of earth and gravel, presents in many points large blocks of rock. You will then be able to see steps created by the roots of the trees, and real rock staircases, slippery in case of rain or humidity.
