Over several thousand years, the important road connection has shaped the regions, the people and their cultures and has created a main cultural artery across the Alps, right across Europe. On this page you can find out in general how to discover and experience Europe's cultural axis. In addition, we give you a first overview of the variety and wealth of culture that awaits you along the route in pictures. On two further pages you will find pictures and short texts about the wealth of culture in the regions and places along the route.

Traces of history

Along the Via Claudia Augusta there are numerous traces of the history of the old road, regions and places. Some are easy to find, some only with good guidance. Some places are simply places full of history, where you can't see anything and have to make the stories come alive in your head. The own pages on history(s) of the regions and places on this platform - Altinate / Padana - will help you to do so. The interactive map here on the platform and the apps of the Via Claudia Augusta help to do so. Last but not least, the " 4 maps through the millennia"  which are successively available for each region along the route, are also helpful.
