ALTERNATIVE ACTIVITY 

Day 8 - September 23

FOR YOUR LEISURE TIME WE SUGGEST YOU A BEAUTIFUL HIKING

For an optimal excursion, it is advisable to take the route from top to bottom:
in particular, the long walk starts in Agerola, from the hamlet of Bomerano,
650 meters above sea level, then crosses Nocelle locality, and continues
through the ancient route of the Hellenic settlers, once dominated by temples,
to Positano.
The place still retains all its charm and has inspired poets and men of letters.
Italo Calvino described the Path of the Gods as "that road suspended over the
magical gulf of the 'Sirens' still furrowed by memory and myth." And it is
precisely with this phrase imprinted on a ceramic plaque that the path that
represents a boast for the entire Amalfi Coast begins.
The Path of the Gods has not been touched by the hand of man. Indeed, no
one has dared to desecrate the beauty of the place, not even the weather has
managed to scratch the rocks that jealously guard the stories of the peoples
who have lived there.
The most sensitive souls can let their imagination take them away, trying to
hear the sound of Ulysses' ship plowing through the blue waters of the
Tyrrhenian Sea and reaching the Amalfi Coast. Only the smell of the vegetation
can tickle the mind and divert it from the mythological vision.

In alternative: you can also visit Capri island, with a ferry at your leisure, or we can organize a boat tour (at the moment not included)

Screenshot 2023-07-06 at 10.51.11 AM.png

And don’t forget in your free time...
