Via Egnatia

Via Egnatia
This was one of the great roads of the Roman Empire and stretched for 1,120km from Dyrrachium (Durres) on the Adriatic coast of Albania and all the way to Byzantium. It was possible to board a ship to cross the Adriatic, continue the journey along the Via Appia to Rome that linked the twin capitals of the Roman Empire.

The name possibly derives from Gnaeus Egnatius who was a pro-consul of Macedonia and is thought to have initiated the upgrading of the earlier road in the 2nd century BC. The road fell into neglect during the 5th century AD although Emperor Justinian had it repaired and it continued as a trade route through Byzantine times. The road was also used by the Crusaders on route to the Middle East but it had lost much of its importance by the time of the Ottoman conquest.

Via Egnatia is situated in Bakirkoy Istanbul .
