Description

Through mountains and valleys, along riverbeds, past lakes and seaside, villages and cities, the ancient Via Egnatia route goes 1000 km FROM Duress in Albania eastward to Macedonia, Greece to Istanbul. Parts of the old road have survived and are still there to enjoy for the observant visitor.

This is a journey into history that will change your views on Europe. Via Egnatia stands for the cultural connection between East and West. Walking here offers a special insight into the amalgam of cultures that have become the Balkans.
