It was named the Path of the Gods, not without reason. It offers a fabulous view of coastal and mountain landscapes from Positano to Capri. Walking about 500m above the sea level between rocky passages, Mediterranean vegetation, forests of oaks, and terraces made on steep slopes. The first site to visit along this nature trail, coming from Bomerano, is the Grotta del Biscotto (cave of the biscuit) (at 524 meters above sea level), named after its geologic conformation, similar to the shape of a biscuit bread (specific product of Agerola). As well, the craggy surface of the rock resembles the local specialty biscotti. Biscotto is a complex small bread baked twice so that it dries out and lasts for an entire year. Then it is soaked in water and eaten, usually in a soup or part of a salad.
Your itinerary will consist of:
Colli Serra: The pass of Colle Serra, situated at 578 meters above sea level, is the halfway point, reachable also from Praiano, but in this case, walking back towards Bomerano is where the “pinnacle” is located, where someone has placed a memorial tablet to remember Giustino Fortunato, who named this trail. The surroundings are a continuous blooming of the Mediterranean bush, a mixture of chestnut trees, holm oaks, alders, and corbezzolo trees.
With some luck, it is possible to catch sight of one of the peregrine hawks that
