From there follow the road signs that will take you at the entrance of the path. The Path of the Gods can also be reached from Praiano but you have to face a long flight of steps to go from sea level to 580 meters high to the pass of Colle Serra.

You will notice a change in the landscape: from a vegetation made of a few shrubs and grass, where are frequently encountered sheep and goats grazing, you switch to the Mediterranean holm oak, arbutus, heather and rosemary. Nocelle was formerly accessible only on foot via a steep staircase rising from Positano. Today you can decide whether to get off the bus or walk to the 1,500 steps that will take you up to Arienzo. If it is summer, it is worth tackle another 300 steps down on the beach of Arienzo and enjoy a refreshing swim.
