The Path of the Gods

The name with which this naturalistic path is called derives from historical facts and legends according to which the Greek gods passed right here to save Ulysses from the sirens that were on the island of Li Galli, also the writer Italo Calvino described this path as " that road suspended on the magical gulf of the "Sirens" still crossed by memory and myth ", the same phrase can also be read on ceramic tiles located right at the beginning of the Path of the Gods.
Amalfi historic center
Amalfi is, geographically and historically, the central nucleus of the coast, around which a series of villages branch out, each with its own character and traditions. Positano, Maiori, Minori and Ravello are just some of the towns that you can visit to immerse yourself in the beauty of a unique and unforgettable place. The origins of Amalfi go back to the struggles between the Romans and the barbarian populations, even if, according to a legend, Amalfi seems to be a gift that Hercules, son of Jupiter, made to the beloved girl whose eyes had the color of the sea .
The geographical position of Amalfi has favored the development of a strong source of income around maritime activity. The glorious past and the beauty of the landscape have made the city an important center of attraction for tourists from all over Europe. After a mandatory visit to the Duomo, you can stroll through the streets of the center, delighting in the souvenir shops or letting yourself be captivated by the scents and flavors of the many delicacies of the Amalfi Coast.
Pompeii was one of the largest and brightest cities of the Roman era, as evidenced by the testimonies that continue to emerge from the earth. The large production and export of oils and wines made Pompeii a very rich city, which became a tourist destination for the Roman patricians. The excavations of Pompeii are a chilling testimony of the lifestyle of the city of the time, which seems to have peacefully fallen asleep under volcanic dust. The city also attracts millions of tourists a year due to the presence of the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Holy Rosary, a basilica which gathers thousands of ex-votos and which enjoys particular veneration by Catholics all over the world.
Valle delle Ferriere
A large valley on the border between Amalfi and Agerola, where streams and sea breezes have created a subtropical microclimate that has become the exclusive habitat for a giant fern dating back to the Cenozoic period, the Woodwaria radicans, symbol of the Valley.
