Cinque Terre high trail (Volasra to Cornilglia compared to Amalfi Coast Path of the Gods (Agerola to Nocelle)

Jump to last reply

During our visit to the Cinque Terre last year before the trails were closed, we were fortunate enough to hike the high trail (6d) from Volastra to Corniglia. It was spectacular and we did not think it was that difficult to do (we are all just now entering the prime of our lives - early to mid-sixties – LOL!!!!) At any rate, we took our time and made it in about an hour and a half and we LOVED it. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

Next year we are headed to the Amalfi Coast and I’m wondering how the section of the Path of the Gods from Agerola to Nocelle would compare to what we hiked in the CT. Has anyone hiked both and if so, was this section of the Path of the Gods significantly more difficult than the CT high trail from Volastra to Corniglia? I know it’s longer but is it more difficult?

Below are a couple of excerpts from a web site I found.

If I choose to ignore the warning about vertigo (LOL) is the rest of it relatively true?

<<<<The name of the footpath, The Gods' Pathway, is an indication of the spectacular scenery en route. Ideally, walkers should walk from Agerola to Nocelle, and not vice-versa, this way the route is a gentle downhill one, with magnificent views of the Amalfi Coast and the island of Capri.>>>>

Things you should know before commencing the walk:
Departure point: Agerola or Praiano.
Arrival point: Nocelle, a fraction of Positano.
Duration: 3hrs circa.
Kilometers: 7,8 km.
Difficulty: easy. The path is not suitable for those who suffer from vertigo.>>>>
