The path starts from the main square of Atrani (Piazza Umberto I) (m 5), where you have to take the stairway behind the fountain. Climb up to the driveway and then, following this to the left for about ten meters (pay attention to the cars!), Take the stairway (Via Proto Pisani) which leads to the square of the splendid Church of St. Mary Magdalene, dating back to 1274 From the wide road in front of the church, take the stairway (Via San Nicola) in front of the church entrance and, after a few meters, the one on the right (Via Pastino) which, after a few meters leads to the steep and very panoramic stairway (Via Atrani) which leads to Castiglione di Ravello (98 m), where it is possible to visit the Church of San Filippo and San Giacomo, dating back to the 10th century. Return to the path and proceed along the left staircase and, after a few meters, along the path to the right that leads to the Castiglione-Ravello road. Crossing this, take the ladder on the right, which leads to Marmorata in about 20 minutes, where you have arrived when the path crosses the paved road again. At this point, you have to take that road for about 20 meters on the left and then take the stairway to the left (Via Casanova) which leads to the hamlet of Torello di Ravello, passing through Via Vallone. Once in Torello (224 m), we come to the Church of San Michele Arcangelo, also dating back to 1200. We then proceed in a northerly direction, until we reach the locality of Lacco di Ravello (376 m), where the church of Santa Maria del Lacco, dating back to 1500, and the ancient church of San Trifone and San Martino, already existing in 1096. From Lacco the wooded part of the route begins, which develops along a dirt path that ends in the locality Cerreto ( m 1090) at the intersection with the Alta Via dei Monti Lattari (CAI 300). To be noted, at an altitude of 533 m, is the possibility of visiting the ruins of the fortifications of Fretta, where two bitter battles were fought in 1135 and 1137, which saw the Pisans prevail over the Amalfi, marking the end of the Duchy of Amalfi.
