Via Egnatia

Please inquire about small group pricing.

Once one of the world's most traveled routes, the Via Egnatia is an Ancient Roman road, as an eastern continuation of the Via Appia between Rome and Istanbul (Constantinople, Byzantium), the two great metropolises of the late Roman Empire. Now it is a great walking route for people who want to avoid the touristy, busy crowds.
