Via Claudia Augusta:
European axis of culture

After two thousand years of history, Via Claudia Augusta, the ancient Roman road that led from the Po River lowlands and the Adriatic Sea all the way to Bavaria and the Danube, is enjoying a renaissance. With the end of conflict and a united Europe, the Via Claudia Augusta has become a bridge joining and blending cultures, places and emotions. It is a symbolic route that spans three nations, each with its own diverse landscape and traditions, artistic treasures and culinary specialities, marked by a more approachable, youthful and ecologically sustainable tourism. The itinerary invites us to leave our watches at home to explore places and landscapes from a fresh perspective, attentive to the colours, subtle nuances, fragrances and flavours of the history that permeates everything here.

Schematic Roman map "Tabula Peutingeriana
& schematic maps of the Via Claudia Augusta ...
left and right of it

Karten

The Tabula Peutingeriana is the only surviving map of the Romans that shows the entire Roman Empire. It is not a geographically correct map, but a schematic map, similar to a subway map. It was very long and was rolled. Do you recognize Italy, in the second map from the left, in the lower 2 thirds, in the middle? Yes, that's Italy. The elongated water area to the left of Italy is the Mediterranean Sea. Following the schematic Tabula Peutingeriana, the Via Claudia Augusta also developed schematic maps. If a schematic map appears on the left-hand side of the homepage, it will show you which part of the Via Claudia Augusta the content concerns. If a schematic map appears on the right-hand side, it will show you the relevant section in detail.

È attualmente in fase di realizzazione una serie di mappe delle regioni lungo la Via Claudia Augusta. Ognuna di esse mostrerà la relativa zona in 3 differenti momenti della suastoria e come èora. Le 3 mappe "storiche" permettono di farsi un’idea di come la regione si è trasformata nel corso della storia. Quella attuale è un‘introduzione ai modi e ai luoghi per conoscere la regione e la Via Claudia Augusta di oggi.
