    Very hot, but very beautiful
    Such a beautiful walk with many photos opportunities available throughout. It took us about an hour to get there as there were many steps and a couple of our party were slightly unfit and middle aged. We went to Sal de Riso (a pastry cafe) whilst in Minori. It was an extremely hot day, so I would recommend going early in the day so avoid most the heat midday and take lots of water on your trip. There is also someone about halfway up selling lemonade. The walk back from Minori or Maiori along the seafront took about 20 mins.

    Best part of the Amalfi coast
    This is the actual highlight of Amalfi coast! Amalfi and Positano are so touristy, it's unsettling. Stay in Maiori and enjoy your time. Don't miss this hike. It's about 400 steps up, but they are relatively easy because they are not all at once and there are benches to rest along the way with beautiful views. Skip the fresh lemonade and "lemon granita" at one of the shops at the top. It was a tiny cup of each and was 4 euros each. The Granita was just chunky ice with a few drops of lemon sugar in the middle, pretty insulting. Wanted to help support, but this is a really poor value. Definitely ask the price because they do not post them.

    Beautiful walk - must do!
    We hiked along the Path of Lemons from Minori to Māori and back again. What a lovely way to spend a day! There are about 400 steps up but it is all paved stone, steep in parts and then more gradual, very doable - I’d suggest going when it’s cooler, in the morning, and you can pause as needed. In Minori, walk straight back from the port, and you will find markers for where the path begins, and along the way. Along the route there are two places at least where you can stop for a glass of lemonade, granita or limoncello. Delicious to try the local varieties! Took us maybe 45-60 minutes. Must do if you are in the area, and the views are stunning!

    Just do it!
    Awesome experience, glad we made the effort. We walked along the path of the gods/lemons from Maiori to Minori. Amazing views and mind blowing how these people make the most of the space they have, even if it is vertical! Met some beautiful locals along the way and stopped off at a local lemon farm shop called Agricola Ruocco’s, a fifth generation lemon farming family. Amazing lemonade and lemon granita to die for, especially after climbing all those steps. This walk is doable even for the not so fit, just take your time and rest along the way. We even got to experience the local transport, a team of mules carrying the offerings off the hill and bringing back the supplies. Well worth the effort, amazing lifetime memories made today.

Very difficult to find the beginnning of this trail, from Minori, as there are no indications. We had to ask 3 times to find the right stairs, when arriving down from Ravello (walking down hundreds of stairs). The trail itself is paved and very easy, with nice views but not crossing any lemon trees/groves at all. It was not the immersive experience we were expecting: no scent of lemons in the air at all (even if the trees were full) . The only nice experience was tasting the lemonnade, jam, and limoncello at Ruocco (halfway through). Hope in the future a consorcio of growers and tourism association takes care of this trail and takes inspiration from CAI or Swiss indication system for trekkers! Not expensive and could be done also in local ceramic art!

As the other reviews mention, yes there are a lot of stairs but it is so worth the climb for the spectacular views.

This is not a long walk by any means. We walked from Minori - Maiori in about 40 minutes and that was with us stopping to take pictures. We are late 20s/early 30s and are reasonably physically fit, if that is helpful for reference.

The views are wonderful and it is a lovely walk along a safe path. We did at one point need to step into the side to let some lemon carrying donkeys go by!

we started in Minori: you have to climb about 200 stairs (very steep, so take your time) starting near the school in Minori center, or you can follow the road, both up to "Torre". Sentiero dei Limoni is indicated at the start of the trail. Once you got up at the Torre in Minori the path is less steep and quite easy and you will be rewarded with amazing views over Minori and Maiori and their bay. You'll pass through the lemon plantations everywhere and at the end start the steep descent to Maiori. Depending where you stay, you can start in Minori or Maiori, it doesn't make a difference really.

A wonderful walk from Maiori to Minori. So many people commented on the lack of lemons. We were here in March & lots of lemons, but the views are the best bits. Watching the animals & seeing all the different plants too.
I wanted to walk the Path of the Gods but am scared of heights, this walk was enough for me.

I appreciated that the trail was smooth, with either cement or relatively flat stones. The views were nice but not super spectacular. There were a few lemon groves, and some private gardens with various vegetables. We enjoyed stopping to pet some friendly cats. After walking on the trail from Maiori to Minori, we stopped at a pasticceria. We did not want to repeat the walk in reverse, so we walked back to Maiori on the side of the main raod, which was much faster and easier.

This is a path perched along the cliffs, and the only pedestrian route between Mairoi and Minori before the road was built. We started the route in Minori - the initial climb up the steps is a bit of a slog, but it gets easier. You will pass through orchards (not many lemons on display though!) - the midpoint is the tiny village Torre From here its relatively easy walking, with a beautiful view of the green and yellow ceramc tiled domes of Santa Maria a Mare church greeting you in Maiori. We then took a well deserved gelato break at Geljada, before our bus back to our B&B in Amalfi. It's a relatively easy walk, takes a bit over an hour with great views along the way.

The path of the lemons is a beautiful walk offering spectacular views along the way, and passing by lots of lemon groves. I’ve done the walk several times now from Maiori to Minori and back again. There were plenty of lemons in May.
