Originally traced out in the 7th – 4th centuries B.C., its definitive building is owed to the work of Roman engineers.
With the fall of the Roman Empire the road lost part of its original paving and became a small path. With the advent of modern roads it lost its function definitively and its rediscovery was the work of a group of keen walkers who in the nineteen eighties recovered the ancient route which owes its name to the evocative names of mountain locations that it passes through such as Monte Adone, Monte Venere, Monte Giunone.
Today the Way of the Gods is an extraordinary equipped route which winds through the most picturesque landscapes of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines; an experience to be enjoyed also by the inexperienced and with a subdivision into stretches of medium difficulty.
Intersections The Way of the Gods joins St. Anthony’s Way. The Way of the Gods is listed in the Atlas of Paths of the Mibact.
